My rating system goes as such - the .5's are a mixture of the two first numbers, like a 7.5
  1. The worst book I could have possibly read. This rating is saved for the true demon spawns of book hell, and makes me contemplate why I even read books in the first place. If I don't finish a book, it's normally a 1 or 2 on the rating scales of Judgement.
  2. Comparatively against a book rated as a one, it's not a 10 but I still wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. I may have or may not have finished this book, but if I did, it was only from a feeling of obligation as a bookworm, and not because this book was any bit good. I would most likely try to gift this book off to someone, or donate it to a charity store. 
  3. It was bearable, but leaves me wanting more and often ranting about all the things wrong with it. Only would have read this out of curiosity, then hated myself for putting myself through that type of mental torture. Makes me question if the writer should maybe quit their day job and seek something else. 
  4. It was okay. I wouldn't recommend it to others, but it wasn't a COMPLETE waste of my time. Bits and pieces of it were good, and I'd cling to that because nothing else redeems it. I probably wouldn't think twice about this book, but would use it in conversations with other Bookworms. 
  5. I'm half loving it, and half in hate with it. There are wonderfully good points, but there are points that are so horrendous it's hard to over look them. I'd probably keep this book in my bookshelf, but hidden somewhere deep so that my other better books could shine. 
  6. This book was admirable, and kept me interested until the end of it. It's a high rating enough that it would get a recommendation, but it wouldn't be my FIRST recommendation. 
  7. This book is something that would get me talking. It'd stay with me a few weeks after reading it, and it'd made me think while randomly making my bed or something. While not tagged as a favourite, it still resonated with me, and has a place on my bookshelf. 
  8. Adoration. This book is adored, loved, cherished. It receives recommendations and reviews about it, and it often circulates my group of friends. It has all these redeeming features that make it desirable to be favoured, and is well written enough to continue being in discussion a long time after you finish.
  9. Tears. Snot. Feelings. This book destroys me emotionally, makes me feel things that I wouldn't have otherwise felt, and makes me aware of humanity's ugly and weaknesses, but also it's beauty and strengths. It's the highest on the recommendation list, and will forcibly be brought up in conversation. All the features are loved, resonate for years after, and are placed in the best shelf on the bookshelf. 
  10. I have not read a 10 book yet. This book would probably be the ultimate. The Alpha against all the Omegas. It would probably replace any love interest that I may have at that current time. It would bring me Peace, in a world full of Chaos. It's the Light in the Dark. It's everything you ever wanted, and more!

<![CDATA[Mara's Book Ratings]]>Fri, 15 Aug 2014 16:08:34 GMThttp://thebooknooks.weebly.com/ratings--index/maras-book-ratings
Thanks goes to Ashleigh for making this whole rating system a thing. So on a scale of 1-10;
1 being, I could not read this book. I tried and I would rather sell my first born child than finish reading this book.
10 being, I would sell my first born child so everyone on earth could have a copy of this book to read and cherish as long as they both shall live. And everything else falling somewhere in between. Here are all the books I have reviewed/mentioned at some point on this blog. Series have been rated together as a whole even though some books in some series are better than others, I was just too lazy to rate them individually.
If it has one of these * then it made me cry real legitimate tears.
