I'm being harsher with my rating this year, I seem to in the past have lots of 4 star books that I can't remember anything about so I devised a more 'honest' system.

***** Amazing, amazing, amazing I would happily be stuck on a desert island with just this to read.

***** Great read, one I'd like to reread at some point and will probably harp on about to all my reading friends.

***** It was a good read, but if we're honest so parts were just okay, and my fuzzy brain will quickly forget it.

***** Ok, probably would have abandoned if it wasn't for a challenge, or I wasn't wishing that everything would turn out alright in the end.

***** Really disliked this and pulled my way through it because I felt I had to - bookclub, present etc.
