Half Stars, Please. With Sugar on the Side.
This is a plea from all goodreaders on your wonderful site. Please, grant us the benefit of having half stars.
Sometimes a book is more than just one, two, three, four or five stars. We use half stars in our reviews anyway, so why not spare us the trouble and just give us the ratings?
We can assure you that we won't stop rating the books just because there are "too many options". In fact, it'll actually give us some more motivation to rate all the unrated books that we can't rate in the generic five option way.
Many supporters of Goodreads who regularly provide reviews have noted that this feature is not available. This option would give the author and potential readers a better feel for how readers felt about the book.
Out of the millions of status updates and rants about this topic, we hope that you'll take this petition to heart, and provide us with what we've been wanting for ages.
