Book Blogger Hop (1)

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly feature hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books designed to connect readers and book bloggers.

This week's question: Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

I do use a rating system, which is from 1 - 5 stars, 5 being the best. You can find a full explanation for my ratings here. I tried to keep my ratings on here closest to what I was already rating my books like on Goodreads. I do use some half stars on my ratings here, because often I wish Goodreads had that capability. I tend to focus on characters, writing style, and plot for my star rating, and then mention things like book design and cover in my review if they stand out for me.
