I usually rate books out of 5 points. But i don’t think only points are enough, so I add flowers.
The number of flowers is in most cases equal to the points I rate, but in cases where I rate in 0 .5 manner, they don’t necessarily be the same.
For example: if I rated a book 3.5 and I liked it overall, i would give in 4 flowers:
And if i rated it 3.5 and didn’t like it that much, i will give it 3 flowers. So yea, it depends on how much i liked the book even if i rated them both equally.
My reviews are non partial, and I don’t favour any writer personally. If i like the book I praise it, if I don’t I don’t praise it. I speak my heart.
