Rating Scale

I feel rating scales can be very different depending on the novel you are reading, the content of the novel and its genre. however this is a rough guide to mine.

1 Star = A book that I DNFed.

2 Stars = A book that I finished but I had lots of problems with it.

3 Stars = A book that I enjoyed but still had some problems with.

4 Stars = A book that I loved.

5 Stars = A book that I loved and had that certain something that made it stand out.

I also have .5 ratings, for example I would give a book 3.5 stars to a book that I feel deserves more than 3 stars but isn’t quite good enough to get 4 stars.
