Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

It's time once again for the 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?

My answer: Yes I do use a rating system that is somewhat based on the Netflix movie rating system. When rating books I'm reviewing or that I keep track of on Goodreads, I use the star system.
One star = Didn't like it
Two Stars = It was ok
Three Stars = Liked it
Four Stars = Really liked it
Five Stars = Loved it

I also have an excel spreadsheet where I keep track of all the books I've read and what I thought of them. On there I also use the "hated it" rating (although I think I've only had to use that once or twice), which I guess would be the equivalent of 0 stars.
