Book Blogger Hop

I'm back! A very busy summer put a crimp on my meme participation, but now that things have settled down I promise to jump back in to the fray! This meme is hosted by Crazy for Books, so hop on over her way to see what she is up to!

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

I actually just started using a rating system, and I pretty much follow a simple, standard 5 star system (here). I decided to start using a rating because it is a really quick and easy way to sum up how you feel about a book.


  1. Hi Kate! I've just become your 80th follower :D I agree, ratings are the easiest way to sum up your opinion of a book. I've also found that it helps me sort out my thoughts. No idea why though LOL

    Have a great weekend!

  2. We use a star rating system on But it does really just help sum up the book for the one reviewing it.

    I like your stars on your blog by the way. They are very pretty. :)

  3. Hi I am hopping by on the Blog. I decided to not use a rating system. See why here:
