Blog Hop (8/27/10)

The Blog Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:

Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

We use a five star rating system here at I'd So Rather Be Reading.  Why?  Because we appreciate honest opinions.

Didn't finish it.

Finished but did not like.

It was okay.

Slightly better than okay.

Liked it.
Would recommend.

It was really good.
It was great.

It was close to perfection.

Stalker Worthy: It was perfection and I can't stop thinking about it!  This is the highest honor a book can get here at I'd So Rather Be Reading.

I'm off to hop around and see how other people rate their books!  Have a great weekend everyone!  Oh, don't forget to sign up for our August giveaways, ending Aug 31st.  You can win a "Fictional MEN Never Let You Down" t-shirt or an autographed copy of Close to His Heart by Leonora Pruner (historical Christian fiction)!



  1. hahah I love "stalker worthy!" My rating system isn't as defined, but I think that's simply because I'm so wordy haha

  2. Stopping by on the hop. Yes, "stalker worthy" is a great rating!

  3. Me too Kelli! I'm waiting for one more person to join my blog so I can have 100 people. When I started with 12 I never thought I'd get here and now I keep checking every minute to see if that last person has joined.

    I don't have a rating system b/c I seem to give only 4's and 5's on Good Reads so I don't really think I'm good at the rating thing. I'd rather just give and honest review and hope someone reads it. I've got to work on shortening my reviews (and comments).


  4. Hey Kelli!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm glad you like my rating system (and my profile picture, of course!)

    I like your stars as well. Purple's my favorite color, so I think they're lots of fun!

    I hope you guys both have a great weekend!

  5. "Stalker worthy" - possibly the best rating ever! Already a follower, just wanted to say have a great weekend :).

  6. Thank you for hopping by. I do like your ratings. They sound very convincing. I always try and read people's favorite books.

  7. Hopping in from the hop to say have a great Weekend!

    Already a follower :)

    When you have a moment come have a look at my new Giveaway :)


  8. Just hopping back and am now your newest follower! I love your rating system (stalker worthy is great)! Have a great Friday!

  9. Stalker worthy? I love that distinction. Way cool!

  10. Kelly,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I really appreciate it. I love your system. Stalker worthy is hilarious.

    Have an awesome weekend!

  11. Love the ratings! I will come up with my own unique ones one day, hopefully sooner than later. Make it a bit more fun! New follower here, glad to have found ya'll! Have an awesome weekend! Happy Reading.

  12. Thats a similar rating system to what I have! Awesome blog, happy friday :)

  13. Hey Ladies,

    I love visiting your blog. :) Just wanting to stop by and say "hi". Happy Friday!

  14. Stalker Worthy is great, I agree some books are just better than a 5. Still Alice by Lisa Genova is one I can think of.

    Have a great weekend.

  15. Stalker worthy! Fantastic! Thanks for hopping by, and you've never had a cannoli! Oh my that is imho, one of life's wonderful decadent treats. Those baby's are just yummy with a nice cup of espresso :)

    New follower, I really like your blog!

  17. Like the rating system and I base mine on the Goodreads pattern. I'll place the stars at the month wrap up... oh oh... holy cow! I have to do that next! Where did August go???
