I always try to be honest when I make a review, and below is the description of what ratings on my reviews usually mean. Just because I might not like or love a book, does not that other people won’t enjoy it. This just my personal opinion and preference when it comes to reading. I will always explain what I liked and didn’t like about the book too.
Didn’t like it at all. Also used for a DNF (did not finish)
Not bad, could be better.
I liked it/I enjoyed reading it.
I really liked it!
Loved it!! A definite re-read.
I also use half-ratings if it can’t fit under just one category.
