Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (4).

Book Blogger Hop

I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger, like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!


Weekly question: Do you use a rating system for your reviews, and if so, what is it and why?

Yes, I use a rating system based upon 5 stars. You can see a few more details to the right, on the sidebar. I use ratings loosely. I don't believe that you can judge a book based upon its rating - to me, the review itself is more important.



  1. Enchanted. What a great concept. New follower!

  2. Alissa, I agree with you about the ratings. I think the review means more too but I think they are useful if you haven't read the book yet and are just checking to see if it's worth your time.

    Happy reading!
    My Hop

  3. I agree that the review is more important. I use the 1-5 rating as well, but it's just to make rating on other review sites easier for me!

    Happy Friday!

  9. Hi!

    Thanks for hopping by my blog and reading my review on Her Fearful Symmetry . I'll admit it isn't as good as The Time Traveller's Wife but it's such a quick read that it's definitely worth the time.

    I love your blog and will definitely be following, not least because one of my pet peeves is the misuse of the apostrophe and you seem to be a kindred grammar spirit!

    Have a great weekend, Lit Addicted Brit

  10. Here for the Hop! I do not use a rating system. No two books are alike, unless they have the same author. I absolutely love the background! Super fun.

  11. Hello! Just stopping by from the hop. I'm a new follower. I love that your site promotes good grammar! :)

    Here's mine!

  12. I'm stopping by from the blog hops!

    I use letter grades to rate my books and I find other people's rating systems to be very helpful. I follow a lot of blogs and being able to see a rating graphically definitely helps me when I'm reading and commenting on reviews. Have a good weekend!

    What Book is That?

  13. Hey! I'm just stopping by for the hop! Your blog is so cute!
