My Rating System

There is nothing like ice cold water on a hot summer day. I'm armed with a bottle and a book to keep me company since my husband is on his way to battle in the Guild Wars (for those who don't know, it's an interactive computer game).

I am currently reading RG Willem's Targets of Affection, a book I am reviewing for Front Street Reviews ( It is the first book for the site I will be reviewing, and I am excited to be a part of the reviewing team there.

I thought perhaps I should give a breakdown of my rating system that I use for my blog reviews. I decided against a numeric or letter grading scale because it can be confusing. I tend to enjoy most of the books I read, and so a top heavy scale is much more functional for me. I do use that infamous "+" now and then for the inbetween ratings, but basically my scale goes something like this:

Excellent (a book that makes me exclaim, "Wow!" upon finishing it. This is my highest rating.)
Very Good
Poor (I didn't like it--a rating I rarely give a book because I tend not to finish books I don't like, and I won't rate books I do not finish; it just seems wrong to do so.)

Happy Reading!
