This weeks question:
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
Yes, I do! This is what it is:
5/5- Fabulous, a beautiful obsession.
4/5- Great, really enjoyed it.
3/5- Good, I liked it.
2/5- Average/disappointing, library check-out
1/5- I couldn't finish it or wish I hadn't
Really I should post it in one of my sidebars. Why do I have it? Because sometimes when I'm reading other reviews all I want is a quick answer. So seeing a general rating scale makes me decide whether or not I want to read the review, so I like to give me readers the same chance. Plus the rating scale like the one I have seems to be a universal thing around the blogsphere, sure there are some that do halves and even go up to higher numbers, but this one seems to be the handiest one for my readers.
Here's a break down of a review.
Thoughts: Where the bulk of my likes and dislikes for the book are expanded and ranted about.
Bottom Line: A chance to get a quick summary of the book in my words.
Sexual Content: Let's readers know what kind of content they're looking at.
Rating: The final tally.
- Sunday Sweets is sadly nonexistent this week, no goodies bought!
- Books and Babbles came late because of tech issues, but I found time to babble on about The Worst Covers of the Romance Genre.
- This week I reviewed Hunted By The Others by Jess Hianes, check out the review here.
- Again this week I only have one book on my Wednesday Wishlist, but the covers a beauty!
Off to the hop!
