Discussion Question: Do You Rate Books According to Genre?
Although I don't give star ratings on my blog, I do on Goodreads. And when I look back at my star ratings, I realize that a four star rating for a New Adult novel means something different than a four star rating for a Fantasy novel. I'm subconsciously (or maybe even consciously) comparing the New Adult novel with all of the other New Adult novels I've read and then I rate it accordingly. And I do that for each genre. So if I give four stars to a New Adult novel and four stars to a Fantasy novel, it doesn't necessarily mean that I feel equally about the books. Does that make sense? Does anyone else rate books according to genre?
