We only read 9 books in 2012 due to everyone’s busy schedules. In June, we decided to start rating all the books that we read. Everyone rates the book 1-10 (10 is the highest) and then we average it out.
When we first started rating the books we were a lot harder than we are now. 🙂 I think This is Where I Leave you and The Tie That Binds really deserve to be 1-2 points higher. Gone Girl was definitely the favorite of the year and Outlander was the the second fave.
