I rate all of my books using the Goodreads 5 star rating system. However, sometimes I do half stars (1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 4.5) because I am in between rating it a certain number of stars.
1 Star– This means that I probably didn’t finish the book because it was not doing anything for me.
2 Stars– I finished it, but I had a lot of issues with it and wouldn’t recommend.
3 Stars– I found a couple of issues with the book, but it was a pretty good read that I would probably recommend.
4 Stars– This was a very good book and the only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because it didn’t become one of my all-time favorites.
5 Stars– These books are on my favorites list and are ones that I know I won’t ever forget. A lot of the time, my reasoning for a book getting this rating is if it impacted me personally.
