  1. Well Tiktiki, it’s a bit complicated, I’ll try and explain in layman’s terms.

    3 stars can mean one of 3 things.
    1. It is very good book.
    2. It’s not necessarily a good book but the timing was right and it appeared better than it actually is.
    3. 3 stars look pretty, I like them.

    2 stars.
    1. I’m too flakey to commit either way.
    2. I can’t really remember this book, I forgot it the instant I moved onto the next.

    1 star.
    1, It wasn’t very good.
    2. It was terrible but I felt bad for the author.
    3. I was in a ketchi mood.

    0 stars.
    1. It wasn’t worth taking the time out of my day to rate it.
    2. I forgot to put stars in an am too lazy to rectify the situation.

    Hope this helps love.
