Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
A note on how I rate:
5 stars: A rare rating. I've given out three 5-star ratings so far this year, but some years I'm lucky to give out one. I can be very picky.
4 stars: On the other hand, I can be pretty generous with 4 stars. A 4-star rated book is definitely above average, or just an entire blast to read even if artistically it's maybe not that high. (What can I say - I know it when I read it!)
3 stars: A perfectly good average read. Nothing wrong with it, just not enough pluses to elevate it to a better rating. Probably nothing special, but just fine.
2 stars: Book has significant problems, but still has something going for it. Maybe it's written by an author who can write, but I hated the characters and the plot was 'meh.' Maybe a lot of grammar errors the editor should have caught. Maybe it's historical fiction and something 99% of readers wouldn't notice made me throw it at the wall.
1 star: Books that make me growl, and give me the urge to go grab my matches. Plot elements I find offensive (particularly if gratuitous). Incompetent writing. Mansplaining.
Luckily I have not given a 1 this year - I don't go looking for them! (I believe my worst this year is in the 2-stars zone, a historical mystery where the 'historical' elements made me want to throw the book - I couldn't because I don't throw my kindle - and the mystery element wasn't terribly good, either.)
