I created my rating system almost a year ago and I definitely feel like it has improved my reviews and made it a lot easy to differentiate between them.
However I do think it's time for a little update and refresh!
~ I love it! It's almost perfect and I keep rereading it over and over!
It's lead me to read similar books or more of the same author.
I often feel like books I've read are more than 4 Hearts but not quite 5 so in comes 4½ hearts!
I definitely feel like 4½ hearts is needed as I always find myself struggling with my ratings, I imagine 4½ will be like an A and 5 like an A*!
I liked aspects of it but something really put me off...
I rarely use 2 or 2½ as a rating so it makes sense to combine 2 and 2½ into one rating!
I'm looking forward to implementing this new rating!
I'm going to do a mini series of posts on ratings and reviewing etc. just to make my new rating system more open and concise.
Let me know what you think!
