What do my ratings mean?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Completely brilliant!

I adored this book. I intend to re-read it once a week for the rest of my life and be buried with it when I die.

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆ Loved it

I would absolutely buy this book and recommend it to all my friends.

⭐⭐⭐☆☆ Liked it

I had a good time reading this book, but I’d think twice before passing it on to anybody else: it could be hit or miss.

⭐⭐☆☆☆ Meh

This book didn’t do it for me. The negatives outweighed whatever good qualities I found.

⭐☆☆☆☆ Didn’t like it

If I saw a friend settling down to read this book, I might gently suggest that they go do literally anything else instead.
