In our poll, group members most often give a book three stars. Giving four stars ran a close second. Five stars are rare; which titles did you give all your stars to?

Abigail | 4 comments THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES by Ray Bradbury was my favorite 5-star book last year; Stephen King's THE GREEN MILE and a number of Jasper Fforde books also got top marks~

Susan (wife2abadge) | 4 comments I have quite a few, though more than half are picture books. As novels go, I have 2+ by John Irving, 3+ by Kate Atkinson, Shadow of the Wind by Zafon, The Time Traveler's Wife by Niffenegger, The Giver by Lois Lowry, the first Harry Potter book, and most recently, Far Far Away by Tom McNeal.

Kris Siegel (krissiegel) | 4 comments I'm very selective about my 5 star books. My absolute favorite, life-changing books are To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, and Tiny Beautiful Things, by Cheryl Strayed
