Since there isn’t an alt code for a half star, I use ♫ as a full “star” and ♪ as a “half-star” and I don’t know why exactly I’m using quotations but let’s roll with it.
So, that being said, I should also hastily add that my ratings tend to… differ. They tend to range from the GR rating system to my own specific one. I will usually specify which kind of rating the book falls under in my review, but on my scale, it goes as follows:
♫ ♫: bad but there was one thing good about it / somewhat entertaining
♫ ♫ ♫: meh
♫ ♫ ♫ ♫: really liked it, but there was a single thing off / I didn’t want to give it 5 stars
♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫: hands down perfect
