Rating System

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5 Stars) Absolutely loved this book! 
(Couldn’t put it down. I will read this book again and recommend it to everyone I know. One of my new favourites.)
 
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4 Stars) Really enjoyed this book but something niggled at me.

(This was a very good book, which I enjoyed reading but something small niggled at me. Will very likely recommend it though.)

⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3 Stars) I did like the book but it didn’t leave an unforgettable impression.
(Whilst I did like the book, I found some elements bland and forgettable – could just be me though!)
 
⭐️⭐️ (2 Stars) Struggled to finish this book.
(This book wasn’t for me. Either a character or plot element didn’t quite mesh with me, which made it hard to finish. It might be perfect for another reader though.)
 
⭐️ (1 Star) Just one of those books that I couldn’t click with.
(Sometimes a book just doesn’t work for you. I found this hard or unable to finish.)
