Wednesday Wing – What do those #Bookreview Star Ratings Mean? #wwwblogs

Wednesday Wing brings you tips and notes on a range of book related items.

Rosie's Notebook

Last week we brought you some simple easy to use book review templates to get the new reviewer under way http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-8ZP

Today we’re going to look at the world of Book Review Star Ratings. I’d like to Thank Terry Tyler for her valuable input with this post.

The star rating of a book is so important, as it can make the difference between a ‘buy’ or a ‘pass’ for a potential reader. The star average is important for authors, too, if they are approaching book promotion sites.

But what does each star rating mean? Just to make it nice and confusing, on Amazon and Goodreads the stars actually mean slightly different things, and although most book bloggers have their own system (often stated on their blog), it’s as well to be aware of what the ratings mean on these sites.

Amazon Rating

Amazon

Goodreads Rating

Goodreads

Many reviewers feel the bands between the stars are too wide and introduce their own breakdowns within these, awarding a 3.5 stars or a 4.5 stars etc. Then they might round up or down, depending on how they feel about the book. This is common practice these days and quite useful, if you feel a book is, for instance, better than a 3* but not quite up to a 4*. You can state the variation at the top of the review on Amazon and Goodreads.

If you have a blog and want to use your own system of star ratings, it’s best to display it clearly on your blog, so that readers know what you mean by those four stars for instance. Then, you can translate this to Amazon and Goodreads as you see fit. It’s important to be consistent, if you can, so that readers know what you mean by each rating.

Here’s a dilemma reviewers often face: what if a book is good, well written and researched, perfectly presented, with excellent characterisation, but just didn’t ‘float your boat’, maybe because it’s outside your favourite genre range, or was a much more gently paced book than you prefer? You have two options here, and it’s really up to you:

  • Award the stars according to your own reading experience only.
  • Bear in mind that readers who love this genre might adore it, and rate it according to its merit in that area of the market.

You can always qualify the rating with the wording in the review itself; for instance, ‘this book was a little slow for me and too romance orientated, but I think lovers of the genre will adore it.’

The most important thing is to be honest; you only have to browse Amazon to see reviews saying ‘I bought this book because of all its 5* reviews, but it’s full of grammatical errors and typos’. But don’t get in too much of a sweat over it; one man’s meat is another man’s poison. A book you consider a 5* unputdownable gem might be quite mediocre to someone else. Also, because the 5* system is so limiting, a 3* rating can mean anything from a fairly good book (‘I liked it’ on Goodreads) to something with much potential for improvement.

Ultimately, many reviewers award stars by ‘feel’. Does this book say 5* to you? It’s very important, too, not to feel pressured. If you’re a blogger who takes in review requests, your blog should make writers aware that you review honestly. It’s not unheard of for writers to hassle book bloggers to change their star rating, but please don’t succumb to this, if it happens to you. The way to make your book blog worth reading is to make it authentic.

Above all, it’s your choice, and don’t forget that every single reader will read a book differently!

One important point to make: don’t forget that on Amazon you are reviewing THE PRODUCT. Not the delivery time, or Amazon customer service, or indeed the writer. I’ve seen books given 1* simply because the customer had trouble downloading the book! This can reflect badly on the author.

Easy Templates To Help Readers Write A Book Review http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-8ZP

Wednesday Wing – Simple templates for writing a #BookReview #wwwblogs

 Wednesday Wing is about passing on observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.

Rosie's Notebook

Today I’m passing on a tip about writing book reviews.

Many people don’t write book reviews because they believe they can’t possible write one.

Recently I was asked to help in the form of some easy templates which will start readers off and from which they can build their confidence to create their own reviews.

Template 1

(Insert book title) is set in (Example select; town, or country or a year).

The Book opens with (Example select; a name of a character or an action)

The story is about (Example; The Irish Famine, or the lives of The Tudor Kings & Queens, or the loves and losses of a vampire etc)

I enjoyed the (Example; Witty dialogue, or the Historical descriptions of the era, or how realistic the characters were.)

Template 2

Book Title and Author Name

(Name the first main character) example Nicholas is a Fallen Angel/ a divorcee/ police detective/ a lawyer etc

He/She works/ lives in (name the town, country, place or era)

Name one or two other leading characters. Say a little about them.

Say what links all these characters.

What did you like about the book?

What would have made it better?

Who would you recommend the book to? 

Star Rating given.

Template 3

Book Title and Author Name

Genre

Book Setting – time and place

Introduce the main characters

Describe the storyline in general terms (avoid spoilers that give too much away)

How was the book set out? (If this was obvious) For instance alternating chapters from different characters, or chapters from different time periods.

What did you like about the book?

What would have made it better?

What didn’t you enjoy in the book?

Would you read another book by this author?

Your star rating.

Wednesday Wing…..Let’s Talk About Libraries #wwwblogs

Wednesday Wing is a series of posts where we look at books from the POV of the reader.

Rosie's Notebook

Let’s talk about Libraries.

Local libraries are dying out.

Reading Original

In the last year I think I have visited Fleet library just three times. On each occasion I have headed for the upstairs non-fiction section. Before I began reviewing I was a regular visitor devouring all the shelves of their books. I’ve always liked to read, as a child we lived in the countryside and had a mobile library van come and visit once every two weeks. I was lucky enough to be able to introduce my kids to the magical experience of the library bus (as they called it) when we visited their Grandparents. There’s nothing like standing at the dis-used official bus stop watching the vehicle containing dreams and adventure driving down the road and stopping just for you.

Now it’s over to you, tell me about your local library, your own experiences at libraries or a favourite library around the world.

Or tell me about new community libraries, for instance, when ever I go to see friends I take a stack of books for them to choose any they might want to read. I’m my own mobile library!

Wednesday Wing…Blog in a Slump? Need some ideas? #wwwblogs

Rosie's Notebook

With January being a traditionally tough month; cold dark days and nights, the after Christmas slump and the long road to pay day

many of you might be feeling that blogging has become a drag.

Why not give things a bit of TLC?

  • Freshen up your blog header with a bright new picture. Freshen up the Blog description tag line.
  • Update your “About Me” page.
  • Change your sidebar widgets, add new ones, get rid of old ones, or change the order they are in.
  • Look at the “pages” you are displaying are they old and need taking down or changing?
  • Plan some new themed posts, challenges, advice, top tips, interviews for the next couple of months.
  • Check out the annual April A-Z Blogging Challenge, the sign up page will be open on January 25th (2016) This is a great way to meet new bloggers and get new traffic to your blog. All you have to do is prepare and post 26 posts using the letters of the alphabet, they can be about anything, or from a theme, your choice. The letter A gets posted on April 1st and so on, Sundays are a rest day, so that letter Z posts are on April 30th. Bloggers from across any platform take part, the idea is to find a visit new blogs, the sign up list will give you links to all the bloggers, often showing the theme of their blog, like music, film, handicrafts, books etc Here is a link to the main A-Z page http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/ where there will be banners and badges that you can use on your blog posts. Plus there is a Twitter community supporting the challenge with Hashtags etc.

2016 Challenge

Book Clubs Love ’em? Or Hate em? http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-8JQ

Wednesday Wing….Book Clubs. Love ’em? Hate ’em? What works? What doesn’t? #wwwblogs

Following on from last week’s fantastic discussion on book series, this week I want to throw the doors open to a discussion about book clubs.

Rosie's Notebook

I know very little about book clubs, I’ve always steered clear of them, preferring to read my own choice of books, I have a few friends who have dabbled. However they are a way to link readers to writers.

Reading Soft edge

Here are some starter questions, feel free to answer these or let’s see where the discussion takes us.

  • So what makes a good book club?
  • What is the ideal length of time between each meeting?
  • What are the best ways to create a discussion about the book?
  • What is the best way to learn about the books to be reviewed? A list in advance? Or a choice at the meeting?
  • Would you pay a fee to belong to a book club?
  • Virtual book clubs – what are they like?

Wednesday Wing….Should you write a book series? #ArchiveDay #WriterTips

Welcome to my feature called Wednesday Wing where I’ll be passing on

observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.

Rosie's Notebook

Today I’m passing on a tip about writing a book series from my own READING experiences.

I seriously believe that with the explosion of self-publishing that the book market is at a saturated state, anyone and everyone can publish a book or five.

There is a saying about there being at least one book in each of us waiting to be written. For many authors writing a book is one of their life’s ambitions and once they’ve written and published their first book there is no stopping them, even before they’ve hit the publish button many authors will be scribbling away with thoughts of their next book.

BUT what should that next book be about? SHOULD you write a sequel or plan a series? Or should you write a one off stand alone novel and then try another completely different style or genre? There is no right or wrong answer, however I do think authors need to think long and hard before diving in with a sequel or a series.

Marketing and selling any new book is hard and unless the book becomes a best seller, selling a sequel WILL be even harder. Readers are put off committing to the sequel if they haven’t read the first book. If your first book had less than a mass of  5* genuine reviews from REAL readers (not your family and friends but a wide selection of reviews across the world), the sequel will be treated cautiously by readers.

So what can you do? The YA Fantasy genre has book series in it’s droves as does the Detective crime genre. I know from my own reading of YA fantasy that the popular series will often have the first book on kindle offered for FREE to capture the reading audience and then it makes them pay for the rest. BUT ANY first book in a series still has to be a smokin’ hot read for readers to be gagging for book 2 and beyond. It still means hours of hard sweat and lots of your hard earned money to make that book a great seller and then you give it away for free in the hope that the next books will bring in the cash.

Cliff hanger or stand-alone? Some series are stand alone books which all have a connection, these are books which finish their storyline with each book. The Cliff-hanger takes the reader on a roller coaster ride and just when things get exciting or it looks like the mystery will be solved, the book ends and the reader is left gagging for the next book. As a reader a cliff-hanger ending is a real pain if you have to wait several months for the next book. The danger for an author is that you’ve then lost the reader who forgets about your book unless you have a really loyal fan base. (Think Harry Potter books)

AS READERS, what are your thoughts about series and sequels? (Many of you are authors, but today I ask you to put your READER hat on and look at things from the other side of the fence)

Wednesday Wing…Does your book have a Wham! Impact opening line? #wwwblogs #WriterTips

Welcome to my new feature called Wednesday Wing where I’ll be passing on

observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.

Rosie's Notebook

Today I’m passing on a tip about HIGH IMPACT opening lines.

I read several books a week, each time I open a new book I look forward to the first lines pulling me in, making me ask questions, getting me inside the head of a character. To me that’s the making of a great book.

Kate Moretti gives a concise and extremely interesting post here called “Fishing Out Your Manuscript Hook” when she wrote a guest post for Writers in the Storm.

The more books I read the more I DISLIKE prologues/ prefaces, quotes and poems, pages which, for me, interfere with launching myself into the book.

What I want is a gem of a book which grabs me and takes me off on an adventure, an escape from my ordinary life and one where I can’t stop turning the pages.

I’m going to grab some books from my bookshelf and tell you their first sentence and let’s see which ones we would carry on reading.

It was at a love-spinning that I saw Kester first. (Precious Bane by Mary Webb) A small hook for me I want to know what a love-spinning is and who Kester is?

“I need poison…now…this very night” (The Gallows Curse by Karen Maitland) Another small hook, who needs the poison? Why is their speech drawn out? Are they ill or out of breath? 

It was dark under the trees, only a little moonlight penetrating the half-bare branches. (Sovereign by C.J Sansom) No real hook here for me.

Death…David lifted his eyes from the desk, looking at the framed photograph of Duane Hanson’s plastic sculpture “Supermarket Lady”.  (Handling The Undead by John Lindqvist) A small hook, who is David? but the rest did nothing for me, in fact the word plastic turned me off.

A flash of moonlight touched her hair with silver as she scurried along the street into town. (Cold Sacrifice by Leigh Russell) A very small hook, who is this lady? But not very exciting.

“Ever-Wait!” Damen reaches toward me, grasping my shoulder, hoping to slow me, to bring me to him, but I keep moving forward, can’t afford the delay. (Ever Lasting by Alyson Noel) A good hook. who is Damen? What are they running from or to? Are they running or walking fast? Why can’t they afford a delay?

 The road was a killer, hardly wider than a decent stream of spit and snaking like a cobra between giant bushes loaded with strange flowers that resembled drops of blood. (Indulgence in Death by J.D Robb) This one hooked me, in fact it had me reading on…Why was the road a killer? Where is it set? Is the blood a significance? Why does the narrator choose these analogies? What is their mind-set? Are they male or female?

Over to you, what do you look for in a first line?

Wednesday Wing….Tweeting “Thank-You” Maximising the message #wwwblogs

Welcome to my new feature called Wednesday Wing where I’ll be

passing on observations, tips and information to readers I’ve made a note of.

Rosie's Notebook

Today I’m passing on a tip about maximising the “Thank You” message.

This post is bound to cause controversy!

Let me ask you a question….when you see a tweet about your blog post or book or product do you thank the tweeter in a separate tweet or think “Great! Here is an opportunity for marketing”?

When another person sends you a “Thanks for sharing” tweet how does it make you feel? Appreciated? Do you reply?

When your twitter feed is filled by “Thanks for sharing” tweets, what is your attention span for them? I see these as wasted Tweets, “Nice” but fairly ineffectual.

Now let’s look at this again

Thanking people is GREAT we all like to feel appreciated BUT how about these options….(keep thinking about all your marketing potentials)

First there is the new Twitter feature which asks if you want to “Add a comment” of your own before retweeting – why not USE this to make sure there is a link for other readers back to your blog post/review/book/article.

Or send your “Thanks for sharing” with a little more like thanks for sharing your review of my book and add a link to the book on Amazon or the review post.

Or thank the tweeter this way; go to their twitter page, perhaps follow them and then share a different tweet from their list.

I always the re-tweet and click the favourite button to show that I appreciate someone’s tweet on my behalf, but I rarely write empty “Thank you” tweets.

Did you know that if you add a dot before the @ (.@) when using a tweeter’s name other readers can eavesdrop on your conversation and may find it interesting. This is also useful when “Thanking” others and using your tweet to fuller potential.

So what do you do to thank people?
