My Review Style & Rating System
I have had my blog for a few months now, and I have been flip flopping around with my review style and rating system. I’ve been writing reviews in a paragraph format, but that really doesn’t fit my personality. I’m more of a list maker….in every aspect of my life. Taking this into consideration, I think I’ve finally come up with a review and rating system that I will enjoy.
I plan to rate every book I read on these 10 aspects:
1. 1. The Main Character(s)
2. 2. The Relationships (family, friends, romantic, etc.)
3. 3. The Setting
4. 4. The Action/Plot
5. 5. The Writing
6. 6. The Pacing
7. 7. Uniqueness of the Story
8. 8. Did the book make me FEEL something?
9. 9. Lagniappe category unique to each book
I’ll give aspects of the book that I liked a smiley face ☺
I’ll give aspects of the book that I disliked a sad face ☹
I’ll use this symbol � for aspects that I’m indifferent about.
I'll also note whether I'd reread the book & who I would recommend the book to.
Bloggers, what type of review & rating system do you use? Readers, what type of reviews and rating systems do you like to see on blogs? Feel free to comment!
