Rate This Book

A friend and reader recently suggested that I offer a rating system with my posts.  I do try to give a clue in the last paragraph about how I feel about the book, but rating is tricky.  I think most books are likeable – and someone will like a book – whether or not I do.  Other books no one will like – even if I rave over it.

But – the rating system might be worth a try.  Here are a few of my latest reads with my ratings, just in case you didn’t detect my sly innuendo in the review.

Rating System:

✓✓✓✓✓ – Don’t miss it!  Hope you like it as much as I did.
✓✓✓✓ – You should read it (my opinion anyway)
✓✓✓ – Worth a try – at least to the first 50 pages
✓✓ –  You might need some chocolate to get you through
✓ – Watch TV instead

My Ratings on Recent Reads: 

  • State of Wonder  ✓✓✓✓✓
  • To Be Sung Underwater ✓✓✓✓
  • The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen ✓✓✓
  • The Borrower ✓✓✓✓
  • The Space Between Us  ✓✓✓
  • Come to the Edge ✓✓
  • Because of Mr. Terupt ✓

Let me know if you agree with my assessments – and what you think of the rating system.
