Book Blogger Hop (2) and Follow Friday (1)

It's Follow Friday!





This is my first Follow My Blog Friday, a weekly meme hosted by hosted by Parajunkee's View!



Book Blogger Hop





This is my second Book Blogger Hop, a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books .

Book Blogger Hop Question:


Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
Yes.  I do. I find them very helpful.  While my reviews are not meant to always be sugar coated sometimes the things that I felt that were worth mentioning might not read so well (to some) in the grand scheme of things.  If that makes any sense?  Anyway, I am able to write what I truly feel about a book then offer the rating as a way to show what I felt about the book OVERALL.

  4. Hopping through the blog hopper. Joined in your quest for 100 followers. Hope you'll join my blog. I'm 2 shy of 100.

    I think you'll love Ruined. It's a great book. One I read six months before I started blogging. And I reviewed Infinite Days recently on my blog.

    I like the look of your site.

    I don't use a rating system. I rate everything 4's and 5's. I'm more afraid to give a bad rating with stars than tell the truth with a bad review. Don't know why.

  6. I'm an old follower hopping by. I get what you are saying about rating systems I think. Sometimes I really focus on something I didn't like about a book because the rest of it is so good and this certain element stuck out because of it. I might focus on it in my review but still really love the book. That's when rating comes in handy.

    Happy reading!
