I started Book Hooked Blog in 2009 after falling in love with the blogs of girlfriends on my online book club (the frequently-referred-to Nesties). This is an eclectic blog that reflects my wide range of interests. I read and review all kinds of books and also frequently post on book-related topics. Once a month or so I try to post something more personal about me and what's going on in my own life. I'm married and have two great dane puppies and a cat who frequently make appearances as well.
Book Hooked Blog doesn't have a numerical rating system. I think it's too hard to use numbers or stars to evaluate a book. There are usually many different factors I take into consideration. Sometimes a book can be well-written but boring. Other times a book can be poorly written but engrossing. So I have my own review system, not based on scoring but based on two criteria: writing and entertainment value. Each book review will have two sections.
The first section will analyze the writing and give a recommendation as to whether the book is written well.
The second section (the MST3K section) will discuss the pure entertainment value of the book, keeping in mind "it's just a book, I should really just relax".
