Book Blogger Hop (7) ~August 27th-30th

     Another week, another Friday (can you hear the sigh?). I actually had a pretty good week though. I just didn't have enough time to read as much as I would have liked.
     Mockingjay came out Tuesday, can you believe it? I cannot wait to read it! Lucky for me, I won my second contest ever and the prize was... Mockingjay! Thanks so much to Mrs. DeRaps over at DeRaps Reads.
     How was your week? Fantastic I hope.
Book Blogger HopThanks to Crazy-for-Books!
Question of the Week:
     Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

     I do use a rating system. I think it helps give readers a better understanding of just how much I liked or disliked a book. It goes from 1 (being the worst) to 10 (being the best). You can see it in my left sidebar. Notice how witty I was trying to be? Yeah, we all know I failed miserably at that one...  ;)

     Have a great weekend! Happy hopping and reading!

Found your blog through the Hop! :)

I think rating systems can be pretty useful for a quick look at what a blogger thinks of a book!

I'm trying to come up with a rating system. I have one I stole from an online group, but I'm not really sure of the copyright laws for book rating systems.

I'm a new follower!

Hope you'll stop in, too.

This week's question was my suggestion and I'm loving having a look around at everyone's answers.
Have a great weekend!

Just hopping by....

Stop by my blog if you get a chance for reviews on I'd Know you Anywhere by Laura Lippman, Saving Cee Cee Honeycut by Beth Hoffman, and many others.

Happy Hopping, Everyone....hop on over to my blog to see my answer to the rating question.

Dominique: I agree!
Readerbuzz: I've never actually thought about rating systems being copyrighted... I'm sure you'll come up with something fantastical anyway!
(Bookish)InABox: Thank you! I like my title too, though it is a little dorky. ;)
Flippin' Fabulous: Thanks! I'm on my way over.
Stephanie: It was a really good question!
