3 Star Rating Event

Hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance

I signed up for this event a couple of weeks ago as people often get the wrong end of the stick when I give a book 3 stars. If you feel the same way you might like to join in, it's not just for readers of paranormal romance (obviously). You will have to click past a warning that the blog contains adult content but I can't see anything too risque on there!

Thursday, March 29, 2012, will be for book reviewers to discuss in detail and educate our followers, authors and publishers on what a 3 Star rating means to us since so many people seem to react differently to seeing this much maligned rating. It is also an opportunity for our followers to tell us in their comments how they feel about reading, or the possibility of reading, a book we have given a 3 Star rating.

Friday, March 30, 2012, will be a single post containing a paragraph or two from several authors and publishers on their honest thoughts about receiving a 3 Star rating on their work; not what their ego feels but how they take the news of rating and what that rating means to them.

If you are an author or someone that represents an author and would like to have your say please contact me. You can remain anonymous but please stay civil. If you would like to be named you will receive a link to your website, social media and/or book.

  1. That sounds interesting. If I have more time to look over it later I might join in. I wouldn't give a book a 3 star rating if I didn't like it.

  2. This sounds like a great idea! Everyone has very different ideas about what 3 stars mean. I look forward to seeing the results.
