Reading a book is the easiest thing in the world. Unfortunately, I can´t always say the same for writing reviews or rating a book. Sometimes it´s hard to come up with the right words to describe my feelings for a story. Sometimes I can´t decide on a rating.
Despite this minor difficulty I try to keep things as simple as possible for myself. There´s simply no need to overcomplicate things.
This is why I use a simple 1-5 star rating system.
Note that I´ve included a DNF category into the mix. On very few occasions I´ll feel the need to discontinue a book ( or series ) for reasons I´ll more than gladly explain in a “Why I DNF´d…” post. I believe in a healthy balance when it comes to feedback or sharing my thoughts. Including a Did Not Finish post fits my blog concept and supports my overall book blog philosophy. If I can hand out a 5 star rating then I most certainly can do the same with 4, 3, 2 stars, including a 1 star and a DNF. There´s a reason for everything and that can be repsectfully explained in a blog post.
I hope this was helpful.
