Book Blog Hop VIII

Book Blogger Hop

Eventually I'm going to stop remembering the Roman numerals and will need to change these headers up.
It's that time of the week again!  Time for the book blog hop hosted by Crazy for Books!  This week's question is "Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?"

I never really intended this blog to be a review blog.  I really wanted a space to write and discuss books I was reading.  Sort of like a book club but online.  I've found that whenever you're discussing books you can't help but to review them a little, even if what you're writing isn't a traditional review.  Even so I've never had an actual rating system and I've no plans to add one.  As it stands I figure I'll just keep writing as I have been and some posts might be reviews and others might just be ramblings.  It's working for me so far.

What do you think of rating systems and do you use them?


  1. Just hopping by. Love the title of your blog. I always wanted red hair. How cool.

  2. I agree with Melissa...Love the title. Hopping around? Hop on over...

  3. Thanks for this post!

  4. Hi Red,

    I'm already a loyal follower of yours but thought I'd hop on over tonight. I agree with you, going with the flow of your writing (reviews, ramblings) is sometimes the best. It's the most enjoyable for me anyways. And it leads to some really good posts that you have created in the past.

    Happy weekend & hopping!

  5. Already a follower, but hopped this week again too. I think you and I are on similar pages regarding rating systems, and am enjoying reading so many varied answers this week!
