5-Macaron Rating System

Screen shot 2016-04-01 at 11.04.23 PMI loved it, loved it, loved it.
I love me a drop-everything-and-read, unputdownable type of book that demands my undivided attention and has me reading late into the night if needed because I just have to know how it all ends. More often than not, I reach the last page wanting more and will shove this into strangers’ hands at the bookstore and babble about it incoherently when I see someone lucky enough to be enjoying it for the first time. This is my way of shouting it from the rooftops.
Playlist included.

Nearly worth the five macaron experience.
My attention never wavered and I still devoured this book and craved its story, but there was just something missing, like finding a hollow bite in the last piece of your macaron.

Great read!
Mind-blowing it was not but still worth the time, still enjoyable for the most part; something I’d still be recommending.

Good read.
There were parts that took my breath away but not enough for a higher rating. Not a bad reading experience but not an extremely amazing one either. If this is one in a series, I’ll still be moving on to the next installment.

I finished it.
I cared enough about the characters and/or the plot to complete it. There were moments, sparks of greatness but it was just an okay read.
Playlist may be included.

After reaching a certain point, I was only interested enough to skim the rest of the read.
I had lost interest and was probably confused enough to flip through in hopes that something would jump at me that would cause me to pause, rewind, and tell myself I needed to give it a second chance – but that chance never presented itself.

Stopped reading but did check the last few pages.
I couldn’t relate, couldn’t get attached, probably came across something that offended me in some odd way. Flipped to the final chapter in search of redemption.

Did not finish.
I’m sorry, this just wasn’t the type of read that appealed to me.
BUT – someone else may come across it and find it to be the best thing they’ve ever read.
