When deciding how much I should rate a book for a review, I use this rating system:
5/5 hoots- Phenomenal, fantastic, amazing. You NEED to read this.
4.5/5 hoots- A fabulous book, there may have been something that made me not give it 5/5, but it is still impressive.
4/5 hoots- A great, enjoyable book.
3.5/5 hoots- This book is satisfactory, only read if you are a fan of the author.
3/5 hoots- It was ok- not a big deal if you let this book pass.
2.5/5 hoots- It wasn't great, I wouldn't recommend reading the novel.
2/5 hoots- It was bad, but not appalling- I still wouldn't recommend reading it.
1.5/5 hoots- I would highly discourage you from reading this, I got very bored throughout the book.
1/5 hoots- It was terrible, wish I hadn't bothered reading it. I couldn't actually finish the book.
