5 stars-The book has lived up to its full potential. The plot is well executed and the end unpredictable. The characters are good and believable.
4.5 stars-The book has almost lived up to its full potential. The plot is pretty good. The characters are good enough.
4 stars-The book is good, well-written, and worthy of the Elite List. However, it's just not one of those 5 star books. The characters can either be good with a mediocre plot or the characters can be mediocre with a good plot.
3.5 stars-The book is good, but not enough to be worthy of the Elite List. This mind of book has just fallen short of the honor.
3 stars-The book is a little above average and definitely worth reading.
2.5-The book is average and probably worth reading.
2 stars-The book is less than average and probably not worth reading. This type of book usually uses a worn out idea.
1.5 stars-The book has a bad writing style but still has potential.
1 star-The book has no potential and is definitely not worth reading at all.
.5 stars-We have only bestowed this honor to two books so far.
