About my libraryMy rating system:

0.5 stars = very bad; D–
1.0 stars = bad/below average; D
1.5 stars = unsatisfying/slightly below average; C–
2.0 stars = mediocre/average; C
2.5 stars = OK/slightly above average; B–
3.0 stars = good/above average; B
3.5 stars = very good; A–
4.0 stars = outstanding; A
4.5 stars = excellent; A+
5.0 stars = amazing/near perfect; A++

I don't just hand out 4- and 5-star ratings like some reviewers. My typical rating is 2–3 stars. I base these ratings on the craftsmanship and skill I feel a writer should possess, so even an "average" or "mediocre" rating is probably better than the majority of the population can pull off. Higher scores tend to be given more often to fiction and poetry than to non-fiction, simply because I tend to have a more enjoyable time while reading them. Erotica rarely receives more than a 2 or 2½, unless it has a really good plot and character development that blend seamlessly with the erotic bits. Since most of the erotica I find is horrible, I often don't finish (or even start) it, and therefore rarely rate it—so while there aren't a lot of ½- and 1-star ratings for it in my library, thus skewing the "average"...trust me, 2 isn't bad and 2½ is pretty good for the genre.
