To read, easy. To review, hard. To write, hardest. Thanks to all the authors who release their efforts into the world.
To enjoy a story I need to be invested in the characters and their world. If the story catches and holds my interest then I'm willing to forgive a lot in plot and grammar. And I do become a fan girl about the authors whose stories I enjoy.
5 and 4 stars: held interest, frequent re-read, have read most or everything by author and wait impatiently for their next release. 5 vs 4: how long did I ponder the story after finishing, how soon and how often did I re-read.
3 stars: finished, may read again, would read more by author
2 stars: jumped to end or skimmed, unlikely to read more by author
