Book Blogger Hop

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Welcome to my blog! If you came here from the Book Blogger Hop over at Crazy-for-Books, thanks for visiting! This is where I talk, rant, rave, and gush about all things, books! This week, Jennifer asks, "Do you use a rating system for your reviews?" For me, it varies, depending on the book and on the genre. Generally, I try to put ratings, because it's more straight-forward that way. But sometimes, I struggle to do so. Some are just more difficult to rate than others, so when they are, I try to let my review -- and hope that is able to -- speak for itself.

Other than that, we have lots of things going on this blog this month, so whenever you get the chance do check them out!
  • Charity Event! Donate, spread the word, and win awesome prizes, all for a great cause.
  • Top Ten Picks - a weekly meme where we list our top 10 choices based on various topics!
I'd love to check your blog out as well, so please leave your link here if you can. Also, visit me on Twitter! Haha. Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. Hey Jillian!

    I hope you had a good week! I understand what you mean about it sometime being difficult to give ratings. I'll spend an hour or two deciding what to give a book every once in awhile!

  2. Hi, Jillian! Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog.

  4. Hi Jillian! I'm a new follower from the hop :)

    I get how hard it is to come up with a rating! Sometimes a book is really good, then something happens in the story and it all goes downhill. I hate it when that happens! But I still use ratings, though, just to give readers a general idea of the book :)

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Erika - I love ratings as it does give a general idea. I wish I was just a little bit more decisive with mine, haha. Have a great weekend to you as well!
