Rating System

★★★★★ (5 Stars) Loved it. Finished in one sitting and/or one of my new favorites!
(I will read this book again. I will love it until the end of time and annoy all my friends with it)

★★★★☆ (4 Stars) Good. I was entertained and I will very likely recommend it to friends.
(This was super good and the pages flew by. Something minor irked me though.)

★★★☆☆ (3 Stars) Ok. I liked it but it's nothing special.
(I did want to know what happens and was invested, but several things irked me.)

★★☆☆☆ (2 Stars) Average, I struggled finishing this.
(It wasn't necessarily bad. It wasn't my thing and I didn't particularly care for the plot/characters. Quite hard to finish.)

★☆☆☆☆ (1 Star) Didn't like it.
(I probably didn't care about anything. Could be an "it's not you, it's me" book. Was very hard to finish. Most likely the writing wasn't for me either.)
