I mentioned previously that I wanted to start including my ratings on my reviews. I thought I'd give you all a little reference, so you can know what I'm thinking when I give a book a rating.
5/5 : this book couldn't have been any better for me. Not only that, it usually needs to make me think about life - themes and idea are relevant enough that this book is on my mind after I've read it. Absolutely fantastic young adult or fantasy books can get this without giving me deep thoughts :) I don't give these lightly because I want it to mean something.
4/5: I really liked it. Actually, it was awesome - it may even be perfect WITHOUT that extra piece that makes it a deep and thoughtful, meaningful experience. Perfect humorous or "fluff" books will probably be 4/5
3/5: It's fine. I enjoyed reading it. Maybe it got slow or I thought the writing wasn't particularly good.
2/5: Pretty lame. Cannot recommend it - usually its because the writing is horrible or the langague or content is offensive.
