I have started using a new system of review stars, and before I review A Time to Speak and A Reluctant Assassin, I figured you should know what they all mean.
So. The Review Stars.
The Thorny Stars – not quite sure if this deserves the rating I’m giving it; ehhhhh; hmmmm; eh
The Sleepy Stars – when will this be over?; *yawns*; I’m bored…; closely related to The Dying Stars
The Throwing Stars – wanted to throw the book – in a good way…?…; usually due to death, relationships, cliff hangers, etc.; related to The Sleepless Stars
The Sleepless Stars – stayed up to 3am or later (earlier?) to read this book; propped my burning eyelids open to get more of this book; have a caffeine dependency because of this book; not to be confused with The Sleepy Stars!!!!!
The Satisfied Stars – that feeling you get when you’ve eaten a scrumptious meal, you know the one, that’s basically this book; life goes on fairly smoothly after this book is over, but the pleasant aftertaste sticks with you for days; the more low key cousin of The Throwing Stars and The Wonderstruck Stars.
The Dying Stars – it was just bad; might not have even finished it; would rather be dying than reading this book; related to The Thorny Stars a few times removed
The Wonderstruck Stars – breathtaking; can’t quite put to words why this book is so amazing; might have wept for various reasons; emotionally destabilized or stabilized (respectively) after reading this book; just… aslkdjfalksdflkslakfsasdfjldfkasdfs
The Assorted Stars – used to add emphasis; little siblings of the major Review Stars
The definitions of the Review Stars are up on my book reviews page along with all the books I’ve reviewed thus far. :)
