My rating scale is as follows: 5 Star: LOVED IT. 100% recommend everyone to buy this book right now. 4 Star: I really enjoyed it, and would highly recommend it to anyone who asks! 3 Star: I enjoyed it, though there were a few bumps for me. Definitely still worth a read! 2 Star: Something about it just didn't quite click with me. 1 Star: Shh...but I actually don't give these out. I firmly believe there is no such thing as a horrible book. Every book out there has had more effort and passion put in them than we readers can truly understand. I appreciate and respect everything that goes into writing a book, and thus seldom give these out. I also give out half-ratings on my blog. However, since Goodreads and Netgallery doesn't allow half-ratings, I normally round those ratings up when reviewing them on those sites. It's all pretty straight-forward, but if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Happy reading!
