****4 stars Holy crap that book was awesome! I'm running out to buy it even though I'm a starving high/college/grad/shiatsu massage school student and am about to have my cell turned off because I haven't paid the bill in six months. Do books mind if you spill Ramen juice on them?

***3 stars Hey, that was pretty good! I think I'm going to have to ask Aunt Beatrice to buy me that book for my next birthday/Christmas/Fourth of July or similar gift-giving occasion.

**2 starsEh, that book was all right. Maybe it was the obnoxious characters, or the too-hot-to-be-true boyfriend falling for the ugly girl, or the moral lesson at the end, or maybe it was the way that giraffe randomly showed up in every other chapter. Metaphor, anyone?

*1 star Holy crap that book sucked! Who the hell picked that dirty kitty litter of a novel out, anyway? Picky agents/editors my ass. I can't believe I wasted two hours of my life sludging through that mudfest. Will I ever get that time back? Can I ever be happy again?
