Rating System

On top of the traditional star system (★★★★★), I will be using an emoticon rating system adapted from Geeky Book Snob. While the designs were made by bad-blood on deviantART, it was Geeky Book Snob’s idea to turn them into a rating system. Below are the emoticons and my meaning for them.
Sometimes stars just aren’t enough to convey how I feel about a book.

Droooool – Such a good book that I want more of it.

 Meh – It was okay but nothing special.

 Mmm… – This was a nice heart-warming read. 

Mind blown! – I can’t even put feelings into words. Life will never be the same.

 Ouch – This book just hurt my head.

 Holy shitballs Batman! – What just happened?! Oh god! Scarred for life and won’t be able to sleep for days. 

Ewww… – something about this book just made my stomach churn. Not for the faint of heart.

 THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER! – This book is so amazing that everyone needs to read it!

Huh? – Did that just really happen?

All the feels! – How could you do that author? I don’t know what to do with all these feels!

Seriously? – Really book? Really? Just…. ugh why did I keep reading?

Can’t breath! – This book is just so bloody hilarious!

Snooooore – this book was just so boring. Nothing special, nothing new. 

 Quoi? – What…This makes no sense…what the hell.

 WTF?! – My rage burns with the fire of a thousand suns! I want to punch a wall! I want to throw the book against that wall! How dare you, book?! How. Dare. You.

Swoon – I’m absolutely in love with this book. love love love it!

Doh! – It seemed like it would be so good but then showed me its true colors. I was tricked!

  1. Haha I LOVE this rating system! Your descriptions of the emoticons cracked me up too. I had a similar system going on in my old book review notebook, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it onto my blog 😦 Very creative!

    • I borrowed the emoticons and the idea from Geeky Book Snob who said that was fine as long as you link back to her. So go and use it if you like 😀 I think the artist on deviant art (linked on the page) has more options as well so go check it out 🙂

  2. Such a unique rating system!

Tell me what you think!
