Q: Do the star ratings a book receives on Goodreads or retail sites affect whether you buy the book or not? (submitted by Flora @ Flora’s Musings…)
A: Star ratings rarely affect whether I will read a book or not. I think that everyone rates things so differently that it’s impossible to get a true idea of what the book is like without reading reviews. What is a 5 star read for me might only be a 4 star read for someone else, but we both enjoyed it the same amount. Even I don’t rate things the same all the time. I might really enjoy the plot of a book, but have issue with something else about it and so I rate it lower. Stars are just too arbitrary!
