Here's the rundown:
5 RED ROSES: AMAZING! Highly recommended.
4 RED ROSES: LOVED it but it has some flaws.
3 RED ROSES: Not amazing or terrible. LIKED.
2 RED ROSES: Not my cup of tea but might be yours.
1 RED ROSE: Did not like and could not recommend.
You will notice, however, that I do not rate books by the full star, or even the half star. I rate books to two decimal places, or to the twentieth. I do have a behind-the-scenes system with which I decide how to rate these books. It has been requested of me in the past that I reveal how it is that I use my ratings system exactly. If you are interested in knowing how my unseen ratings system works, head over to the Contact Me page and let me know!
Don't read too much into my exact rating; my ratings system allows for me to be a bit more exact. Giving a book 4.70 stars versus 4.80 stars really doesn't make too much of a difference.
At this time, I am only revealing my ratings system to publishers and authors.
