What do the Hearts mean?

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 complication of scales, and rarely all one rating or another, here’s my best attempt to explain what my hearts mean:

four-heartsLike it a lot or loved it; I recommend it; put it on your list!

three-heartsLike it; I recommend, with some reservations.

two-heartsI don’t recommend it, though it was compelling enough for me to finish reading.

one-heartI couldn’t get through it
