Rating System

Since this is a book review blog, I should probably consider some sort of rating system for the books I review. Right now I've just been giving fairly arbitrary stars to the books I've reviewed. Most have been between three and five stars. In order to restrict the number of five stars (because I'm a generous person, as long as the book doesn't make me want to throw it at someone. I'm looking at you, Breaking Dawn.) I present my very own rating system. I'll add it to the sidebar for easy reference (which keeps growing longer and longer, I noticed):

1 star: I wanted to throw it out the window.
2 stars: I didn't resort to violence, but I wasn't terribly impressed either.
3 stars: I could take it. I could leave it. Probably won't read again.
4 stars: A lively read, but I won't be picking it up again any time soon.
5 stars: Fabulous—it left a profound impact on me and I'm putting it right back on the TBR pile.
