4 Cookies or 5?

Sometimes I wonder why I give one book 4 cookies and one book 5.  When I really enjoy a book, why can't I just give it 5?

This week I figured it out...

I recently read The False Prince, my most recent 5 cookie book, I wanted to turn around and read the whole book again right away.  I didn't, but there were certain scenes I did go back and re-read a few times over the next few days after I was done.  And still now I find myself thinking about the book.  And put under my pillow at night. 

With a 4 cookie book I finish feeling good and satisfied and happy, but I don't necessarily want to re-read the book or any parts of it.

There's the big difference!

How do you distinguish between 3 or 4 or 5 cookie (or star) books?


  1. That is a big difference.
    For me it's just about how a book makes me feel.

    1. I agree. And I guess for me 4 & 5 are really good and 3 is pretty good. If I finish a book it gets at least a 3 cookie rating!
