When doing reviews I use the 5 star scale – one being lowest and five being the highest. [Insert obvious disclaimer here that all opinions are my own and nothing influences them].
5 stars is difficult to come by. The book needs to be awe inspiring, life changing, or the type of book I become absolutely obsessed with.
If I really enjoy the book, can’t stop reading it, loved the characters and plot, and just had an all around great time reading the book it will get four stars.
Books that are three stars are generally enjoyable, but not my favourite. If I wasn’t left with an overwhelming reaction to the book or can’t remember everything about it it will generally be a three.
I have to really, really struggle with the book for it to be a two, but I’ll begrudgingly finish it no matter how much I dislike it.
You probably won’t see many one star ratings only because if it is that low a rating the chances of me finishing the book are slim to none
