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:

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
Yes, I see a new option – ‘notify me of follow-up posts by email’ Let’s see if it works!
OK, here is my reply back to you, Mary!
I’m commenting again after doing that other confirmation step.
OK, now do you see my reply, post confirmation?
Yes, I see it.
I think we have a dialogue going!
