In thinking about The Stars are Fire (blog posting is on its way!) I was struggling between two hearts and three hearts and decided it would behoove the Dusty Shelves Book Blog if I defined the hearts system a BIT more clearly. Given that it is really a compilation of scales, and rarely all one rating or another, here’s my best attempt to explain what my hearts mean:
Like it a lot or loved it; I recommend it; put it on your list!
Like it; I recommend, with some reservations.
I don’t recommend it, though it was compelling enough for me to finish reading.
I couldn’t get through it.
