About My Library
Japan, South-East Asia, North Europe, Americas (North+Central+Caribbean+South!), World -
literary fiction, (psychological) thrillers, suspense, magical realism, mystery, mythology, ghost stories, plays, classics...

I rate my books always on my enjoyment of them, but not necessarily always on their literary qualities.
Thus, it MAY happen that a generic hilarious R.L. Stine book gets rated higher than a Shakespeare play. 😱
Yeah, I know... 🙄😅😁
Don't hate me for that, ok?

My rating system
5* Perfect
4,5* Excellent
4* Very good
3,5* Good
3* Ok
2,5* Below average
2* Not my cup of tea
1,5* Not good
1* No. Just no.

The biggest step in my ratings is between 3* stars, which is ok (neutral, neither good nor bad) and 3,5*, which is a pretty good book, just maybe not quite as gripping as a 4* read.
