Friday Blog Hop (and 1 more day to enter contest!)

Book Blogger Hop

The blog hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books.
Welcome to Book Infinity! I'm Ava, and if it's your first time here, leave a comment!

Just some news...
I'm currently have a 100+ followers giveaway going on. IT ENDS SATURDAY AT MIDNIGHT MST. If you haven't entered yet, go here to enter! You can win either Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz or Marked by P.C. and Kristin Cast. You have today and tomorrow left to enter!

Now, about the blog hop. The question of the week:

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

My answer:
Yes, I use a rating system, from 1-5, with 5 being the best and 1 being the worst. I actually recently updated my sidebar with a detailed explanation of what each rating means, so head over there and check it out if you're curious. It's not the most original idea (I've seen many other bloggers use the same kind of system) but it works really well for me. It's not perfect, of course, and sometimes I just can't decide what to rate a book, because one rating can't convey everything in the book. But that's why I also write detailed reviews!

  5. Thanks for hopping by my blog! I agree, ratings can't always tell all about a book, but they do help give an overall idea of how you felt after reading it :)

    This week's question was my suggestion and I'm loving having a look around at everyone's answers. I like the way that you have elaborated on the half stars, great idea!

    Have a great weekend!
