(I used this rating system for my older posts. I no longer use it for more recently reviewed books. This is just up to explain my older posts.)

I finally decided to create a review policy or rating system, and I have had my blog since January, January 1st to be exact. I never thought I needed one before, but now that I thought about it, I think that it will add more to my reviews. I came up with this on my own, but I saw something similar at a new blog I discovered today via the Hop, Naomi over at Supernatural Book Worm. I didn't want it to be a lot like hers, so I created my own spin on it. So now to what is my rating system.

LI - Loved It! It's a definite read! You should grab this book before it goes running off the shelf!

LK - Liked it. It wouldn't hurt you to read it, but it wouldn't kill you if you didn't. I still think you'd be missing out if you didn't.

OK - It was okay. Not bad, not excellent.

RB - Read it before. It seemed liked I had already read a very similar story with the same plot and everything.

BL - Bluh! Couldn't wait to put it down!

T -  Absolutely Terrible! Didn't even get past the first few pages without wanting to throw it across the room.

It's very hard for me to rate a book one of the last two, but I'm an honest reviewer. So if your book happens to make me feel that way, I will rate it that. I'm not afraid to rate RB either, if it happens to sound awfully familiar, and not original in any way. I also buy most of my books, get them as ARCs from B&N or through Traveling ARC Tours. I will give you my honest opinion on every book I read no matter what.
