About my libraryMy library is not a real life library that I have in my home especially now that I have an e-reader. It's a virtual library of books I have read or want to read.

5 stars = Books in my forever shelf to be reread throughout the years. Not highbrow at all with a lot of childhood favourites.

4.5 stars = Books I very much liked and will actively recommend to others to read.

4 stars = Books that I enjoyed reading from childhood right through to today. Not for everyone, might be too genre specific or perhaps has a flaw which prevents me from actively pushing friends/family to read.

3.5 stars = Books that I'm still glad to have read, but with also with serious flaws. On balance though the good outweighed the bad.

3 stars = Mediocre books that I don't hate but don't like either. I will probably quickly forget most of the plot to this book - or even that I've read it at all.

2.5 stars and below = Books so bad that it leaves an impression and/or makes me angry. Memorable for the wrong reasons.
