Some nice stats, courtesy of Goodreads
Shortest book: The Julian Chapter by RJ Palacio (84 pages)
Longest book: Ashley Bell by Dean Koontz (560 pages)
The most popular book I read was Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (733K people on Goodreads read it too.)
My least popular book seems unfair – it was just published on 12/27 and I flew through it. And it was so good! Get out there and download it so the stats go up! Unhappy Families by Oliver Tidy.
My own conclusions:
Favorite YA: I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Favorite Audio: Let’s Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Favorite Graphic Novel: Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
Favorite Non Fiction: The Port Chicago 50 by Steve Sheinkin
Favorite Memoir: Raising Ryland by Hillary Whittington
Favorite Mystery: Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith
Favorite Literary Fiction: The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Favorite Supernatural Thriller-ish: Saint Odd by Dean Koontz
And special mentions to:
Elly Griffiths – The Zig Zag Girl looks like a great new series.
Jennifer Latham: Scarlett Undercover was so fun and dark all at once.
Gary D. Schmidt: Orbiting Jupiter had some of the loveliest language I read all year.
Oliver Tidy: You had three great books on my list and kept me well-entertained with your blog. (He Made Me, Particular Stupidities and Unhappy Families)
Sophie Kinsella: Finding Audrey was funny and informative. Anxious people everywhere thank you. And maybe you should be friends with Jenny Lawson. Just saying.
