Great post about the moral responsibility of those little stars. not sure I have ever review if it was less than three stars must check
I read a great post recently on Peter Germany’s blog where he talked about the star system used to review books. I often do reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, but I haven’t really analysed what the stars really mean to me, and I guess everyone’s interpretation is different. So here’s what I’m thinking when I give a book a star:

5 stars ***** I loved it…unputdownable.
4 stars **** Really enjoyed it, but….(I’m probably just being picky but there was at least one thing that annoyed me, I found a bit unbelievable or didn’t like etc).
3 stars *** It was ok but I’m disappointed. I had a major problem with a particular aspect, but for some unknown reason decided to read to the end lol
2 stars ** Hmmmm, not for me. It really didn’t work or was just plain boring.
1 star *
