Kate S | 6160 comments 10.9 Realistic Ratings (Cory Day's Task)-

The average rating I have given in all my Goodreads rating is 3.40, so I’m a little wary when books have over 4.0 or under 2.0. A lot of good books end up with ratings between 3 and 4 stars, so read a book that has higher than a 3.0 rating AND lower than a 4.0 average rating.

I was glad when the mods picked this one out of my ideas, because it had by far the most potential for combo points!

I wa..."


Thanks for suggesting this task, Cory. I had some books to read for my library book groups that didn't fit any of the other tasks.

Might be the only time in my life when I'm disappointed to see a book I have on my list has an average rating above 4.0!

Connie G (connie_g) | 1399 comments I felt the same way, Elizabeth. One of my Southern Lit books has a rating of 4.01, and I'm hoping someone else gives it a lousy review before I read it in January!

Kätlin | 173 comments My thoughts exactly, having just finished a book with the rating of 4.06 :D

Lagullande | 1029 comments Please can you advise what I should do about this book Death of an Ancient King, which is the designated BOM in another GR group? It appears to have a rating of 3.94, but there is also this Death of an Ancient King, which has a rating of 4.00.

Bea | 1601 comments First, Lagullande, all copies should be combined. I did that. The result was that the most popular edition has a rating of 4.00.
