This is the first rating, receiving a rating of only 1/2 of a nerd glasses. This would be applied to books that I couldn’t get myself to finish. I felt like a rating of zero was too harsh, because let’s be honest, every person isn’t going to like every book. Which is why I added in the quote, “But hey, you might.”
This rating pains me. You know the feeling. You’ve been waiting for x amount of months for this book to be released. You finally get a chance to read it and: it sucked, you hated it, it was boring, your favorite characters die, what was the author thinking? This rating applies to books I lost faith in after reading. It receives the lowest rating I will give to a book if I was able to complete it. 2 nerd glasses.
I wasn’t sure what the reaction would be to this rating. This rating of 3 nerd glasses would go to a book that I enjoyed reading. I liked the characters, liked the plot, I liked the book, but I probably won’t read it again. Some books are only meant to be read once…right?
This rating warms my heart and empties my wallet! A rating of 4 nerd glasses means if I have the financial ability to buy the book I will, IMMEDIATELY! It’s a book I plan on reading again and again and a book I just can’t live without. I love nothing more than finding a special place on my bookshelf for new books, like welcoming home new lifelong friends.
Ah, at last. The coveted 5 nerd glasses rating. I created this rating last night after reading Under The Never Sky. I was absolutely blown away by that book and kept asking myself: “What just happened” and repeating “It was AMAZING!”. I then stayed up for another hour reading countless other reviews from different bloggers on the same book. I just couldn’t get enough! This rating is reserved for books I’m obsessed with, books that left me breathless, and books that left me dying for more.
