Book Blogger Hop and Follow My Book Blog!

It's time for some networking! Crazy For Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop which is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

 Parajunkee hosts Follow My Book Blog!  Happy Follow Friday!

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

Yes, I use a rating system.  I originally just used the standard 2-5 stars (I've never read a 1 star book).  I recently started using 2-5 butterflies.  These can be found on the right sidebar.  Generally, anything 3 and above it a good book.  I rarely give out 5 stars for some reason (I've had 4 so far this year).  I think ratings give a good general idea of what someone thinks of something.  I can't see myself not using one, but admit it's not always perfect.

What is the first book that you remember reading?

I'm really not sure.  I was an avid reader from an early age.  I remember devouring the newest Babysitters Club books, and then Sweet Valley High (my mom bought me books 1-50 at a garage sale and I got them as a birthday present), and gradually on to the likes of Mary Higgins Clark, Stephen King, and Dean Koontz.  I wish the YA genre was as huge then as it is now!



  1. I can't think of a one star book either. I also loved the Babysitters Club books. Happy hopping!
