This week's question is:
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
I don't use a rating system for my reviews mostly because I can never determine what rating to give a book lol. When I give stars to books on Goodreads etc, they dont' quite seem to work for me. Like, I can have two 5 star books, but one can be much better than the other. I end up debating in my head "Well it's not as good as that one with 5 stars but it's better than the one I gave 4 stars". I just feel like I'd end up giving books 4.7 stars and that kind of thing if I used ratings. I just prefer to explain what I feel about a book in words. I get why people use ratings though, it's handy for a quick idea of the overall opinion of the book - I just can't make my brain function well enough to actually do it, hehe.

It's also Mega Swagbucks day! If you don't use Swagbucks you should give it a try. Just use it to search as you would your usual search engine and you periodically earn swagbucks which can be redeemed for prizes. Currently I average about 2 £5 Amazon gift cards a month just by using swagbucks for some of my internet searching (I don't even use it all the time). Click below to join.
