Please note that I do try to be very lenient in my ratings of books, I will always give a book a second chance if I think it deserves one.
What do these ratings mean? Well...
DNF: A book will received a rating of DNF if I did not finish the book. I will usually contrast a DNF with a star rating, so that readers may see my thoughts on the book up until the point I stopped reading.

4 Star Rating: A book will receive a star rating of 4 if I completely finished the book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters were enjoyable and the plot was structurally sound. A four star book will have a few flaws that stood out to me that didn't quite make it perfect. I could definitely see potential in a star rating of 4 and I would definitely recommend it to others.

5 Star Rating: A book will receive a star rating of 5 if it is literally considered perfect in my mind. The plot line is amazing and surprised me, the characters are loveable and you root for your favourites. A star rating of 5 will mean I didn't want to put the book down and if there is a sequel I will definitely be picking it up! No questions asked. A definite recommendation!
