My ratings are very basic and seem to be different than others. I do not do 1/2 stars. I do not rate 5 stars to all my favourite authors. Yes there are some in a series that have been 5 stars to me but that is not because it is my favourite author. It is because they all have wowed me in one way or other. Most of the books I read are between 3 and 4 stars.
5 Stars - Amazing
Characters and plot that feel real. Flow nicely through out. Kept my attention and was hard to put down. Research was done. Characters have their own voice.
4 Stars - Loved It
Loved it still held my attention to the end but there was somethings that did not quite make it a 5 star read. More likes than dislikes.
3 Stars - Liked It
Enjoyable read. A good mixture of likes and dislikes.
2 Stars - Ok
Has more dislikes than likes.
1 Star - Not Good
