I thought that I should just mention in case anyone noticed and are wondering, I am changing my ratings from X out of 10 stars to X out of 5 stars.
Why? Well I decided that I myself feel more comfortable with only 5 stars. I always ended up debating with myself how many stars I should give and looking into the past I see that my ratings are not always consistent. I also hesitated a lot before giving a book or movie 10 stars since I was always finding some excuse why the book or movie was not perfect. Are there any perfect books or movies actually? With only 5 stars all great books or movies that really deserves the highest rating are more likely to get it.
Another reason is of course than this way my ratings match what I give on Goodreads and a few other rating sites that uses 5 stars.
So, now my ratings are:
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Excellent!
Great book, a must read
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Very Good
Very good book. Well worth reading.
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Good
A good book that I enjoyed but nothing that sticks out of the crowd.
⭐ ⭐ Disappointing
Disappointing and below average.
⭐ Utter crap!
Utter crap! Should never have been published.
As before, remember that this is not a professional site but one where I combine my interests, books, movies and computing. The reviews will be colored, even biased, by my personal opinions and tastes.
