I base my reviews of novels on the plot, the dialogue, and the characters themselves. My rating is pretty easy and simple to understand:
5 - worthy of a read. I'm in love.
4 - some things I'm not so sure, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
3- undecided feelings. I may pick it up again in the future; but not definite.
2 - too many too much. two stars for a certain character.
1- no. just no.
Please respect my opinion and my ratings especially if my review is different from yours. I might not have the same taste on books as you may, but I am open to comments and others' opinions that are respectful.
