Book Blogger Hop / Follow Friday #2

Book Blogger Hop

Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee, where people spread the book love by following around the blogosphere.

Book Blogger Hop is a meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books, where book bloggers can "connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!"

Question of the Week (Follow Friday): Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

I'll be posting it in my sidebar...but here's what it looks like:

5 hearts - AMAZING!! How have I lived without this book before? It is the oxygen to my lungs, the water to my fish, the tea to my cup!

4 hearts - This book was good. Like, really, really good. Like, read it good.

3 hearts - 'Twas a decent book - pretty okay, but no chocolate for it.

2 hearts - was...okay.

1 heart - This book was meh. Just wasn't me.

DNF - not even a heart. :( I didn't finish it.

Leave a comment below so I can check out your blog and follow, and please stop by and have a look at a couple of my reviews in the sidebar.

●▬▬▬๑۩ Happy Friday, Tina ۩๑▬▬▬▬●

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You're right, we do have similar rating styles. That's how I rate things on goodreads.

I love your blog layout and your signature, it's so adorable.

Have a good weekend.

Hi Tina! I'm an old follower but I wanted to say have a great weekend, hope you get lots of fun reading done. I see you're reading Catching Fire, that series is one of my favorites! The Hunger Games will always be my favorite of the 3, but I enjoyed CF and Mockingjay:)

Tina, I'm an old follower just hopping back.

I agree about your rating systems. I like to give a rating system so people who are unsure or haven't read a book yet about a book can look quickly to see if it's worth their while without having to read my review and then go in to the book with my opinions floating around in their heads.

Happy reading!

Hey Tina!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I also use a 1-5 rating system. I think it's the one that tends to work best!

Love your blog, so I just became a follower. I also see you're reading Catching Fire. LOVE LOVE LOVE that series (though I haven't gotten my hands on a copy of Mockinjay yet)!

Have a great weekend!

Hey Tina, thank you for stopping by and following my blog. I'm glad to have found another fellow teenage book blogger.
I love your flower background, it's so pretty but doesn't distract from the posts or clutter up.
Congratulations on the Lovely Blog Award you recieved and I like the idea of a 'tips and tricks' series of posts- there's so much to learn about blogging!

I'm a new follower so I look forward to reading more fo your posts :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi, Tina!

Thanks for dropping by the blog. Following back. :) I agree, we readers can have different views on a book. Therefore it should not be defined by our views alone. :)

Have a nice weekend!

Very nice blog! Look forward to reading more from you!!

danya said...

Hi Tina! Thanks for your kind comment on my blog :) I also do a 5-star rating system to give readers my general impression of the book (and how strongly I recommend it), but like you I definitely think the review is the most important part.

Not sure if I can isolate one book as the first I remember reading...possibly The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe or Little House in the Big Woods :)
