I am bringing the WaterTower rating system back by popular demand. Here is a simple rubric on my 1 to 5 rating of books that I have read.
1 WaterTower: Ugh, the book mark is stuck early in the book
2 WaterTowers: OK, but, the bookmark may be stuck later in the book, or I may have had to skim parts of it to make it through.
3 WaterTowers: Good to Very Good, I enjoyed the book, but, I could put it down to do other things. For some reason, first books in a series do this to me. As an example, see my first review of the stupendous “Pendragon” series. Perhaps I am just getting to know the characters.
4 WaterTowers: Very Good to Excellent…hard to put down…enjoyed it tremendously. And, as I am reading it, I keep thinking about it when it is closed.
5 WaterTowers: Enthralling, put down only because of the need to survive or take care of normal bodily functions.
This rubric subject to change. I know it leaves a lot of leeway….but, I do not know of a way to quantify my feelings about a certain book. Yet…I’ll keep programming. :-)
Just so you know…the ARC’s I have been getting have all been in the 3 to 5 category! Awesome books….so far.
