I've been thinking, for a long while, how to create a new addition to my rating system. Since my blog's name is Librarian Mouse my rating is a system of cheeses, one cheese for NTRE (not-to-read-ever) which fortunately I haven't use yet (and I'm keeping my fingers crossed!) to five cheeses if the book was TDF (to-die-for).
But we, book lovers, know that sometimes we find books that are beyond amazing, beyond awesomeness, beyond epicness... So I thought "How am I going to do justice to such an amazing/breathtaking/OMG/epic book?!"
A five cheese rating seamed unfair. And six cheeses was too much cheese... I don't want you to feel sick just by looking at so many cheeses! So then I thought: "Hum... maybe a cool cheese would do the trick. Superhero cheese? Ninja cheese? King cheese?"
None of them felt special enough... Not that I don't like my cheese rating but come on, can you picture a cheese as a superhero?! Because I can't. And as a king, holding a scepter and wearing a cloak, is just hilarious. And these special books have to be taken seriously.
And then yesterday, inspiration came: Why does it have to be a cheese?! Why not a mouse?! A Mouse! After that all I had to do was work and create my new rating. So here you go:
And to commemorate here is a list of the books that deserve the love of my little mouse:
- Watched by Sharde Richardson.
- The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa.
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver.
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.
- Incarnate by Jodi Meadows.
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.
- So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev.
- Divergent by Veronica Roth.
- If I Die by Rachel Vincent.
Hope you enjoy them all ^_^
