Hour 22 – Years Five and Six

Hello Readathoners! This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook.

This year, in honor of the 10 year anniversary, I decided to do something different. We will be going into the time machine and looking at the top books from the past ten years. Now, I know, these types of lists can be controversial. So for this list, I will be referencing Goodreads Most Popular Books published by year. It takes all the books published in any given year and calculates how many people added that book. I will link each years list so that if you wish to see what else was popular that year, you can.

Year Five – 2012:

The 2012 #1 book was The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Now, I know this is probably going to get me stoned or something… but I honestly really disliked this book. I know, a lot of people cried over this book. For me, I could barely force myself to finish it. Its just not my cup of tea…. sorry.

Year Six – 2013:


The 2013 #1 book was Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I haven’t read this book so I can’t really offer any opinion on whether it is #1 worthy. I loved The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith that was from that year.

Do you agree or disagree with these selections? See others in the list you think are more deserving? Let me know in the comments. Next up? 2014 and 2015. No sneak peeking 🙂

  1. Hour 22 Mini-Challenge
    We live in a world of social media. It surrounds us and “steals” a lot our time. Yet it also connects us in ways we’ve never been connected before. Because of social media, I’m able to see pictures of what my family is doing halfway around the world.
    Nothing symbolizes social media as much as the hashtag. People use it so that guests at weddings or parties can find all the pictures associated with the event all in one place. Or sometimes people use it to send a message or as an identifier. We use it on all social media platforms so we can easily identify other readathon participants and all their posts regarding readathon regardless of the platform (twitter, tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, etc)
    For this mini-challenges, I want you to make up your best book related hashtags and share them in the comments below. They can be funny or witty. Serious or sarcastic. Book specific or reading in general. Whatever strikes your fancy, take a moment and share it with us.
    This challenge will be open for the remainder of the readathon. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. 🙂
