Are you ready to HOP??






Here we are again....another TGIF and another hop and Follow Friday under our belt.





Blog Hop is hosted by Jen over at Crazy For Books
This week's question is: Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why? Yes, because I think a lot of people skip the review and head straight to the rating. I know I do....then I go back and read the review. It gives an overall picture of how you felt about a book. The review gives the details. I have struggled with mine though. I rate on a scale of 1-4.Sometimes I rgubj U should go to 5 to give myself more wiggle room but I don't know.....I guess what I have works for now.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee (wo designed my beautiful header!!)

I have lots of stuff going on here this week so I'll just get to it so you can get hopping!
