My Star Rating System For Books
Books I absolutely loved and would read again! These are the books that I usually add to my to-buy wish list so I can have them on my shelves, ready for easy rereading.
Books that I enjoyed but just didn’t have the oomph of a 5-star book. Honestly, the majority of books I read end up with this rating.
Books that I just liked. I didn’t think they were so great that I would reread them, but I definitely don’t regret taking the time to read them in the first place. I would still recommend these books. Note: In my book, a three star rating is still good!
Books that I didn’t personally care for, but may still recommend.
Books that I wish I hadn’t finished and would absolutely not recommend.
No Stars / DNF
I do not give star ratings to my DNF books, but I will still mark them as “read” so I don’t accidentally pick the book up again.
As you can see, I don’t use partial star ratings. There have certainly been times when I wish I did because a book didn’t really fit in one category or another, but to keep things simple, I stick to just these 6 ratings.
Thanks for reading!
