Book Badges!

That’s right! I’m following a small trend. You know what though? I love book badges. I think they’re creative and good for skimmers. And I have nothing against skimmers. I do it sometimes. It really depends on the review and the book, but occasionally I just don’t want to read the whole review. And if I’m wondering “is there sex in this book? maybe profanity? is this okay for teens?” well I can just check the book badges below the post. So, that’s why I made these. I thought I’d just make a quick post to explain them.

This one is for books containing sexual content. I’ll only use it when the content is detailed enough to merit a warning. If the book just mentions people having sex, but doesn’t go into anymore detail, I won’t bother with it.

This one is for funny books. If it made me laugh out loud, I’ll be sure to include this badge.

This one is for books that are good for teens or young adults. ‘Nuff said.

This one is for the kiddie books! I do enjoy reading those now and then. It’s not just little tiny kids, but any children below teen years, so middle grade counts too.

This one is for books with a good bit of profanity. I some people like to know that kind of thing before they delve in, and I read books with profanity pretty often, so here’s my warning!

This one is for books containing graphic art, from manga to picture books to graphic novels to narrative books that just have art scattered throughout.

This is for my favorites! I suppose I could just stamp this on every book I give five stars, but sometimes there really is a distinguishing factor between great books and books that I loved so much that they are a favorite. That distriguishing factor is that I want to read it all over again when I’m finished. I love it when that happens!

This one is for audiobooks and I think it’s pretty obvious so I’m going to move on.

This one is for those books that just didn’t work for me, books I couldn’t finish or skimmed so much I feel uncomfortable rating them.

That’s it! Those are my badges. I hope you like them and they’re helpful. I’m pretty excited about them myself.
