So each week there's this thing called the Book Blogger Hop. For those of you who haven't participated in it before, it's a great way to get your link out and find some new followers. All you have to do is enter your name in the link list and you're all set. Make sure you visit other blogs too!
Each week, there's also a question you have to answer just for fun. So here's this week's.
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
I do use a rating system. It's based on numbers, rather than stars like many do. Each rating is out of 20 points and there are five categories-- Plot, Characters, Ending, Style, and Title (how well the title connects with the storyline). I add up all those scores to give a total grade out of 100 points. I then give it a grade from A to D like they would in school. I also give cover scores ranging from A to D. I find this type of rating system works best for me because I like to get specific and I like being able to break it down piece by piece so my readers can know what to expect, possibly without even reading the whole review.
If you're hopping over from the Hop, be sure to comment and follow! Thanks for stopping by! :)
