I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
Here comes my rating scale!
To explain a little better (to me and to others) how I rate books.
As I am just a humble human being I cannot promise 100% accuracy, but I will strive to stick to my own rating scale :-)
Please take the explanations of the rating stars as pointers/descriptions - not all the statements separated with the slash will be apt for the book I rate.
E.g. not all 2-star-rated book will have pet peeves, some are just written so badly that I cannot give more. Another 2-star-book might have great writing, but I just didn't like it and it included pet peeves.
