At One Book Two, we know ratings are subjective. Often a book Ivana loves, Nell hates, and vice versa. We know we’re not reviewing on the literary merits of a book, but rather on personal preference. To help you understand our rating scale, we’ve tried to put descriptors around the standard 5 point scale to give you some idea of what each number means to us.
5 — Great. This is a great book, and I highly recommend it. It’s in my top tier of books. It’s likely I’ll reread it at some point.
4 — Good. This is a good book. I may or may not reread it, but I’ll probably keep an eye on this author.
3 — Okay. This book is okay. I didn’t hate it, but it didn’t blow me over, either. I doubt I’ll reread it and it wouldn’t be my first recommendation, but if you like the genre, you might like it.
2 — Meh. There are better books out there. I can’t recommend it all that highly. I guess if you think the description sounds good, go for it. It’s not my cup of tea.
1 — No. Really, don’t waste your time. There is some significant work that needs to go into this book before it’s really ready for the public.
