Good god how bad does a book need to be to get less than a 3.5?

I think your idea of what a 3 means and how the community views a 3 might be different. Even on booktube I see a lot of people not having many good things to say about a book and give it a 3. 1s and 2s are rare by bookish standards. It's a weird community :P

That's the thing--Goodreads has a built in rating system where a 1 literally corresponds to "I disliked this", a 2 is "this was ok", and a 3 is "it was a good book". I have read some terrible books on there that were like a 4+ in rating.
