In a nutshell, this is my rating system explained:
My ratings summarised: 1 (nah), 2 (meh), 3 (me likey), 4 (yeah!), and 5 (HELL YEAH!)

Here is a longer version:
One star: This rating is reserved for books that earned my ire and had little to no redeeming qualities. Basically, this is the only rating which means that I actively disliked the book!
Two stars: Two stars means that I did like the book a bit, it had more flaws than good parts but it was still acceptable.
Three stars: This means that I have mixed feelings about it. I definitely liked it but it I’m not totally sure if I would give it a total recommendation.
Four stars: This means that I really liked it and I recommend the book!
Five stars: Ah, one of those rare books that just feels perfect to me in every day. This means I really liked it, I recommend it, and it earns a place in my “read over and over” shelf.
Did Not Finish: DNFs are rare for me, and seem to happen only when the main characters have attitudes that are incredibly annoying.
