A lot of people have been doing this lately and I think there is some kind of bandwagon forming.
As of late, I have read a lot of books that warrant a lower rating than my average but I still enjoyed them so much that I ended up giving it 5 stars. I think it is getting more and more difficult to give books star ratings. Each book has it own merits and I am slowly starting to dislike how I’m boxing my books into star ratings.
I look at my shelf sometimes where I have a lot of 5 star books but none of have that for the same reasons. I am also quite forgiving with books when it comes to ratings so sometimes I would push to say that I feel that my star ratings are not trustworthy sometimes!
So, all this comes down to me getting rid of start ratings and just saying whether I would recommend or not.
