After looking at some other review blogs one thing I consistently see is ratings. A scale of 1-5 or 1-10, but I'm not comfortable rating books. This is because I know I don't get out of a book exactly what someone else will, and that I'm not a true judge of what is a good story. Since I think Lord of The Rings, is ridiculously hard to get through, but I love children's books. There are also so many types of books, to rate a fantasy compared to a historical fiction is weird to me.
So I'll never rate books, I'll tell you what I like and don't like about them. Because if I give you a number will you really want to read it more or less?
