The day before yesterday, I listed the Top 20 least popular books on my Goodreads TBR shelf. Today, I’m bringing you the Top 5 of the Most Popular books on my Goodreads Read shelf, according to the law of average with my ratings.
The Plea – Steve Cavanagh – 4.33/5
Steve Cavanagh is one of my favourites. Ever. I was blown away by the attention of detail in this book and rated it a solid 5 out of 5. It didn’t hurt that I’m hopelessly in love with the main character. He’s life.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine – Gail Honeyman – 4.32/5
Oh I miss Eleanor. I started missing her as soon as I read the last line in the book. A bit of a surprise, really, as I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did because it was surrounded by the biggest amount of hype. It actually put me off reading it for quite some time. It’s a 5 out of 5 from me!
Th1rt3en – Steve Cavanagh – 4.30/5
Thirteen was one of my first 5* reads and is still my favourite book. The story and the final reveal pulled the carpet from underneath me and I’m still thinking about this book almost every day. Again, one with Eddie Flynn who is, as I said above, life!
The Tattooist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris – 4.28/5
Omg. This book. It’s everything. The love story, the helplessness, the never ending hope and friendships. Amazing out of 5!
Columbine – Dave Cullen – 4.28/5
One of the more recent reads. I actually listened to the Audio book all day as I was outside gardening and I was left hollow. It’s a must read out of 5!
And there you have it. I’m happy to see that all my 5 heart reads are above an average of 4/5. You can check out all reviews in more detail if you click on the titles above. Go on, you know you want to!
Tell me, have you read any of those books and not liked them? Why?
