Book Blogger Hop

It's Book Blogger Hop time again! The BBH is hosted by Jen over at Crazy For Books. This is a great opportunity to check out some other book blogs and to just have fun finding out what everyone else is doing! It's a great networking tool. I hope you hop today!

This week Jen wants to know:
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it, and why?

I chose not to use an actual rating system on my blog reviews. Although I like to see what others think of books (it helps me to decide what to read personally AND what to order for the Teen Collection at my Library) the rating system is not as important to me as the actual comments that other bloggers make. Since I feel that way, I did not want to go out of my way to make a system that other bloggers may just skim over as well, so I decided just to be fairly thorough and adament in whatever comments I make for each review.


  1. I like your answer this week, it makes a lot of sense. I have a rating system to keep me focused, but the main review is what's most important:) Saw The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker on your shelf, I loved that one:)

  2. Hi, Jessica, I am new to your blog from the Hop! I am also a new follower. :)

  3. Hopping by to say hi! I've been scrolling through your posts and they are very interesting so I'm a new follower now.
    This week's question was my suggesstion so I'm loving everyones answers. I chose not to use a rating system too, feel free to come and see why:

  4. 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....hop on over to my blog to see my answer to the rating question.

  5. Hello! Just stopping by from the hop! I'm a library-degreed teacher and as of yet just a wannabe librarian! I'm a new follower. Have a great weekend!

    Here's my entry
