Following on Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! Welcome to another hop-tastic Friday.
The awesome Jennifer from Crazy-for-Books hosts this one. And she's got another question for us this week:
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

I don't use a rating system. I've honestly thought about giving it a try though. Perhaps I'll use ninja throwing stars or something to be my stars :). But I go back and forth on the use of a rating system. Sometimes I worry that if someone scans a review and all they see are the three stars I gave a book, then they may write it off all together. And this could easily happen with a book that they would have loved otherwise.

And, of course, there is the issue of boiling the whole book down into a teeny tiny category. I think I'd just be really bad at the whole rating system. Maybe I'll give it a go sometime soon and see how it goes. I used to rate things on Amazon or wherever, but that seemed so easy, ya know? What are your thoughts on the issue?
