Today’s short post is all about how I rate books.  For rating books, I use the Goodreads five star system.  It’s a lot easier for me to use the Goodreads rating system because I use Goodreads to rate and review books.  I don’t use half or quarter stars because Goodreads does not contain them.  I also don’t round up or round down if something were to be a half or quarter star, to me it doesn’t make sense.  As I am becoming more critical of what I read, I feel that more thought is being put into how I rate books.  I also use to hate reading critically, because I was always told too, but now when I read I find myself reading critically because I want to and not because I have to.

The Goodreads system is as follows:

⭐️Did not like it

⭐️⭐️It was okay

⭐️⭐️⭐️Liked it

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Really like it

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️It was amazing

  1. I basically use the same system. When I first started blogging, I used the half-star system, but it became so frustrating to round up or down when rating on Goodreads or Amazon. Now it’s only the rare book that comes along that I wish I had that half-star.
