Since I did a re-post of my About Me post a little bit ago, I figured it was probably time to re-post my Star Rating Explanation post as well. It’s also good for me to re-calibrate myself and make sure I’m not rating things randomly. I originally wrote this in ’16 and it hasn’t changed since. So without further ado …..
Since Star Ratings can by mysterious beasts to some, I thought I would explain what each Star Rating means, roughly, to me.
Will be placing this post as a Page on my WordPress Blog Page.
An Epic read that I will buy in hardcover and read again and again or a book that has profoundly changed my life.
A book that I thoroughly enjoyed but am not sure I will read again. It ‘might’ not hold up to the Me I’ll be in 10 years.
A completely average book that I enjoyed. Nothing really special but nothing bad to note either.
The majority of what I read falls into this category.
Did not enjoy this book. It might have been grammar, editing or plot issues. It might also have been Religious and Philosophical in nature.
Crap. Probably could not finish. Most likely Blasphemous in one way or another. Could also be that the skillz of the writer were of a 3rd grade level.
Whenever a book is a Strong or Weak X Star Book, I tend to go for the half stars. They make my life so much easier!
