A 5-Star Rating is my highest rating. This is a book that I think is amazing and/or unique. I will most likely go out and buy the book if I have not already, and it will be one that I recommend to all my book-loving friends. This is a book I will find myself re-reading several times in the future.
A 4-Star Rating is my second highest rating. I really liked reading this book and I hope to add it to my collection.
A 3-Star Rating means that I liked the book. There may have been some elements I didn't like or I felt that were missing from the story.
A 2-Star Rating means this book was okay. It was nothing special to me and/or the theme is not something I am interested in.
A 1-Star Rating means I disliked the book. Most of the time this rating is reserved for books that I could not finish because they dragged on or was poorly written.
