It’s All About Books has evolved over time. Looking critically at my blog the other day, I realized I needed to create a new rating system for myself. A system where my general opinion of the books I’ve read would become clear without having to read the whole review, and hopefully allows for a better overview… So drum roll… I’m introducing you to my very own rating system. I do not claim originality since the 5 star system including half stars I used has probably been used a million times before. I’ve only added my own descriptions to the different ratings (they roughly translate to a 0-10 score). Their respective meanings are written below:

DNF. I didn’t even bother to finish this one. Either horrible or definitely not for me!
Almost too difficult to reach the last page. Yuk!
Boy, this one gave me a hard time. Not a book to touch again. 
Rating 1,5
The story wasn’t horrible, but there still isn’t another word to describe it but ‘bad’.
Rating 2
It was ok. But mostly ‘meh’. 
Rating 2,5
I give this one the benefit of the doubt. Nothing too exciting
Rating 3
It was a nice read, but not fantastic. 
Rating 3,5
Great read. Really entertaining!
Rating 4
Wow, this was really good. Close to amazing!
Rating 4,5
This one was almost perfect. Surely fantastic!
Rating 5
Absolutely and entirely mind blowing! I suggest you to pick up a copy now.

I hope this will make it easier to read and understand my reviews!
