About my libraryMy ratings are solely based on my reading experience. I am not a critic.

5 stars books are books that I read multiple times because I "favourite" them. These are life changing books. I quote them often.
4.5 stars means that a book has had profound impact on me, but I fall short of calling it an all-time favourite.
4 stars says I very much have enjoyed reading the book.
3.5 stars indicates that I enjoyed the book over all, but found parts of it dull, or not quite meaningful to me.
3 stars books are just about OK to me.
2.5 stars says I am not sure why I read the book.
2 stars means I struggled through reading the book, was on the verge of tossing it, but somehow found a way to the end.
1.5 stars means I contemplated suicide (perhaps multiple times) before I finally finished the book.
1 star means I didn't get to the end, but might give it a chance in the future.
0.5 star means I didn't get to the end, and don't think I ever will.
