Book Rating System for Caribbean Juvenile Literature Reading Challenge



Here is the rating system I'm using to rate the books I read during Caribbean Juvenile Literature Reading Challenge 2013. I'm using cupcakes instead of the standard star system. Why cupcakes? Well, because cupcakes are yummier, although to be fair, I haven't yet tasted a star so they might be quite palatable for all I know.


Adored it - It was a fantastic book. Perfection or pretty darn close. I would highly recommended this.


Loved it - It was a great book. It had a few flaws, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it.


Liked it - It was okay, I’m not going to rave about it. There were things about the book I had issues with.


Did not like it - Found it difficult to complete. Books considered ‘not for me’ will probably fall in this category.


Hated it - This was a terrible book and I struggle to find one redeeming feature to speak about it. I cannot believe trees were cut down for this.


Also, if a book doesn't quite fit into any of the above categories, I'll use a half a cupcake, like so:
