I don’t have a complex rating system at all. I pretty much rate books how I rate them on Goodreads so you know it’s just a basic one to five star system. It’s nothing fancy, and you can see all of my book ratings on my Goodreads profile as well.
One star: I don’t think I’ve ever used this rating on a book. If a book is a one star, I’m not going to finish it. Chalk up one stars to being chucked to the garbage and my DNF list.
Two stars: This is the review I leave for books I typically cannot stand at all. I don’t usually rate book stars like this unless I could just make it through, but I still didn’t enjoy the book at all.
Three stars: This is where books mostly seem to fall for me. They were the books that were decent, but I wasn’t overly thrilled with some aspect. This is the rating I give to most books, and I end up not remembering what the books were about. But I usually recall I didn’t love or hate them.
Four stars: This book was good, but there is some reason it didn’t reach the book all star rating with me. It’s usually a book I really liked, but something just made it impossible to rate a five.
Five stars: These are my favorite books of all time. Even if there is a problem with them, I will still love them and consider them among the top books I’ve ever. Usually reserved for the rare books since I’m picky.
