Having come from a corporate background where employees’ performances are often graded on a 1-5 scale—with 3 being the standard for most employees who successfully perform their jobs—Meg treats her book reviews in a similar manner.
Here’s a quick breakdown of Meg’s book review rating system.
iWriterly’s 5-Star Rating Scale

= The story was enjoyable and the writing was a good quality.
= Either the story or the writing was excellent/above average.
= Some mythical cyborg/hero of legend composed this book, which contains a compelling story and phenomenal writing.
