I will also say that it is rare that I give a two or one star rating, as I know how hard it can be to write. However, if I REALLY do not like the book or if the author is rude, I will rate it lower.
5 Paws: I absolutely loved it!
4 Paws: I really liked it!
3 Paws: It was pretty good.
2 Paws: It was... eh.
1 Paw: Excuse me while I barf.
The reason I use paws is because I am a crazy cat lady.
If you disagree with how I rate a book, please do not be rude. I am allowed to have my own opinion, and we need to respect that everyone has different opinions.
