Book Blogger Hop (6)

This fabulous meme is hosted by Crazy For Books, and this week's question is: Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

I do use a rating system (out of 5 stars - see the right sidebar for the descriptions). I know it never captures all the nuances that a review does, but it gives a general idea of my overall impression of the book, and whether or not I recommend that another reader give it a try.

Hop away!


  1. I'm a follower, but you know me...I hop back! I use a rating system, too, but I just keep it to the simple five star rating on goodreads. I think it gives me more freedom to elaborate and be all wordy haha :)

  2. Thanks for the comment on my hop post welcoming me to the blogosphere. =) I'm now a follower!

  3. Hey! I'm stopping by for the hop and already a follower! Have a great weekend!! :)

  4. Thanks for hopping by Page Tuners. Love the shooting star rating-cute.


  5. Hey Danya,

    I'm already a follower. You're scale is similar to mine. I rarely give out 5s, but mostly 4s and 3s.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I love your description for your number 1 rating. There are some books that really can drag down your IQ.

  7. Hopping on by on the Friday Blog Hop. I like your background.

  8. Great background.

    Just hopping by....

    Stop by my blog if you get a chance for reviews on I'd Know you Anywhere by Laura Lippman, Saving Cee Cee Honeycut by Beth Hoffman, and many others.

    Happy Hopping, Everyone.

  9. Nice blog! Stopping by from the hop. :)

  10. Hopping by!
    I like that a lot of bloggers use the 5 point rating system (and like a previous commenter pointed out, it corresponds to the goodreads ratings as well). Makes it easy to get an overall idea of the person's response to the book before reading the review.

  11. Hi! I'm a new follower from the hop! I use "smiley" emoticons to rate my books since I am an emotional reader and it also goes well with the "theme" of my blog. Have a super day!

  12. Hi! This is my first hop :) I'm completely unable to stick to a five point rating system, so I went with grades!
