Rating System

I thought it would probably be beneficial to have a page that described how i rate the books I review.

I have updated my rating system since first posting, but my stars still remain the same.

I now also look at other aspects of the book including:

The Plot: 
How good was the story overall? Was there a clear plot the reader was following? Is the plot engaging to the reader (aka me)?

Ease of Reading:
How easy was the book to read? Was the font a good size? was the language used easy to read or necessary for the story?

Character Development: 
How well are the characters developed throughout the story? Do they change suddenly or is it a gradual understandable change? Are the characters and their behaviours and attributes believable in the context of the story?

World Building: 
Is the world the story is set in developed well? is there detail in its creation? Does the world evolve as the story evolves?

Quality of writing: 
How well written is the story?
