Is There Such A Thing As A 5 Star (Or In Our Case A 5 Omelet) Book?

The Friday Morning Bookclub has been rating their books for some time now and we have yet to award a book 5 omelets! Are there any 5 omelet books out there? The Help by Kathryn Stockett came close with 4 3/4 omelets, and Pride and Prejudice was not far behind with 4 1/2 omelets. Sarah’s key, another book club favorite lagged slightly behind with 4 1/4 omelets.  We still have plenty of books to rate as we are methodically going back through our list and rated all of the books we have read over the years and we have been meeting for 8 years!  The further back we go, the harder it is for me to remember just how much I liked a book, and there are actually a few on the list that I can’t even remember reading. I assume that those are not 5 omelet books!  This week we are rating Testimony by Anita Shreve and I certainly remember reading this one. Although I enjoyed reading Testimony very much and it was a great discussion book, I have a feeling that this is not going to be”The One” to earn 5 omelets! Help us find our 5 Omelet book and don’t forget to vote!

Finally! Some books our readers like enough to give 5 Omelets to. Here is what we have so far. What do you think? What are some of your favorites?

One Thousand White Women

Beneath A Marble Sky

Not By The Sword

The Kite Runner


Buffalo Soldier

Memoirs Of A Geisha



  1. I would give One Thousand White Woman 5 omelets, also Beneath the Marble Sky.

  2. I agree with Audrey on both of those. I would also add “Not by the Sword” and “The Kite Runner”

  4. I read this before I joined the book club, but one of my favorite books is Memoirs of a Geisha. I can’t believe it’s written by a man!!!!!!!!!
