It occurred to me that I’ve been rating my books without fully explaining the rating scale. This might get tweaked, but at least for now it is an idea of what I mean when I give something a “1 out of 5” or a “5 out of 5.” The other stuff like “4 out of 5 zombie bears” is just for fun and I find it amusing. Although, sometimes it’s easier to be clever than others.
1 – Didn’t Like It: I typically won’t give a 1 to something unless I just could NOT finish it.
2 – Meh: I made it through the book, but I will probably never look at this book again, ever.
3 – It was Ok: It wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible. I probably have some complaints about it and probably won’t recommend it.
4 – Liked it: This is where I’ll probably be kind of gushy about a book. I might have one or two complaints but over-all the experience was enjoyable.
5 – Awesome: Typically books I could NOT put down and made me excited and care about the characters’ and their struggles.
