Hop-day Friday

It's time for the weekly book blogger hops again! A great opportunity to meet new bloggers and say hi to old favorites.

Check out the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books

Here's the question of the week: Do you use a rating system for your book reviews and if so, describe it?

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for two and a half months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books.

I use a 1 to 5 rating system for my books. Essentially I have a 10-step rating system since I do 3.5, 4, 4.5, etc. Most of the books I read get a 3.5 or 4 rating, since I usually read books I think I'll like.

  19. Happy Friday! I find most of my ratings fall in the 3.5/4 category too - but every now and then I'm blown away and hand out a 5 and sometimes I'm caught by surprise and give out a 2. I feel like I spend a lot of time in the 3.5 range.

  28. Here for the Hop! I do not use a rating system. No two books are alike, unless they have the same author.

  34. Hey, Alison! It's me again. I LOVED the library program at Urbana/Champaign. I actually did their online program (LEEP) so I could also work. And yes, the library school there is ranked #1.
