This rating system is not my own, it is the one that is implemented on Goodreads.
I will not always have the same emotions behind the rating but it does express a certain level of “spelling things out” that may not happen if I get excited and talk in circles during a review.
The rating is not the entire review and is a mere semblence of whether or not I liked the book and none of the reasons why I did or did not; therefore, I highly encourage you to read the entire review for the full thoughts and opinions.
★ – I didn’t like this book, not recommended.
★★ – It was okay. No recommendation to or not to read.
★★★ – I liked this book. This can be for varying reasons. Recommended.
★★★★ – I loved this book! Highly recommended!
★★★★★ – FANTABULOUSLY AWESOME! MUST READ!
