“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”

Book Review

Those pesky three star reviews

Bookish Posts (blogging, Ramblings And Musings)

Lindsay | Bookboodle reblogged this on bookboodle and commented:

imageReally interesting blog here from Ishita on 3 star reviews! I don't see a 3* rating as bad, for me it was an ok enjoyable read but not one I'd necessarily shout from the roof tops about and would donate rather than keep on the shelf. I don't use a rating system other than on Goodreads but I'm aware other bloggers do and sometimes I mention in my review what Goodreads rating I gave, and sometimes I don't. It's not always about the star rating. What are your thoughts on 3* reviews?
