Hour 23 – Years Seven and Eight

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 Seven – 2014:

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr was the #1 added book published in 2014. I have to say that I completely agree with this book. I listened to it on audio earlier this year and I’ve already checked it out from the library to listen to again. If you haven’t read this book, please consider doing so. The audio is fantastic if you listen to the audiobook. Particularly the radio portion.

Year Eight – 2015:

The #1 book for 2015 was The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I just read this book for the first time last week. This was one of the rare instances where I watched the movie before reading the book. Maybe if I had read it when it was released and I didn’t know the ending in advance, I would have appreciated this book more.

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? 2016 and 2017. No sneak peeking 🙂

  1. Those were two I submitted. I used all the books that were read by my F2F book group from the books published in those years. So they are at least popular book club books and I see them on lots of peoples lists so I agree.
