My Rating System

I have decided to start rating the books that I read as I have noticed that a few others already do this. I sometimes do put a rating after my book review so I thought it would be a good idea to give an explanation of how my ratings work.

Book's Ahoy! and At Home With Books both have similar rating systems to the one that I will be using. So here is my method:

5/5= I loved this book and would definitely suggest this book for personal reading or a book club.

4/5= I really enjoyed this book and would suggest it for others to read.

3/5= I probably liked this book, I may suggest to others to read, depending upon the content.

2/5= I didn't really enjoy this book, but I did finish reading it. Probably would not suggest for others to read.

1/5= I did not like this book at all and definitely would not suggest it to others.

Sounds great! I definitely pay attention to ratings.

That's funny - I never really thought about the star ratings I give on Goodreads - but looking over my list every now and then I'll wonder how I could have given a certain book 4 stars if I only gave this other one 3 stars and the other one was much better! I think my ratings vary depending upon my mood - I can be really hard on books sometimes and others I get all gushy and turn into a big softy :0)

Bumbles: I know what you mean...I am going to have to keep a level head when I choose a rating...and I should probably wait to rate a book if I'm in a bad mood! lol
