Tumblr: 20 Most Reblogged Books of 2015

By December 28, 2015 Discussion and Recommendations

We think that one of the best things about the closing of a year is the ‘best of’ bookish lists that appear helping us all boost the TBR. Over on Tumblr yearinreview has been breaking down the year in Tumblr lists and as part of that we have the 20 most reblogged books of 2015!

It’s a mixed list, and unsurprisingly it’s dominated by YA. What is surprising is that the list is more old favourites than new releases and it’s a mixed bunch! You may find you’ve read a lot of these already, but then there are a couple we haven’t even heard of!

Without further ado and with thanks to yearinreview, here are the top 20 reblogged books of 2015 from Tumblr.

Harry Potter Series – J. K Rowling

It seems that the Potterverse will remain popular forever and with the announcement of The Cursed Child in 2015 and the release of the first Harry Potter Illustrated it’s been quite a year for the series.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians – Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson gets plenty of mentions from the For Reading Addicts community and remains a popular series. It’s clearly popular elsewhere too, as it’s the second most reblogged book of 2015 on Tumblr.

Song of Ice and Fire Series – George R. R. Martin

As everyone waits for the next instalment of the Game of Thrones television series, the whole television series has got lots of new readers reaching for the book series too, so we’re not surprised to find this here in third place.

The Amazing Book is Not On Fire – Dan Howell and Phil Lester

The first book on the list I have not heard of is The Amazing Book is Not On Fire. Dan and Phil are Internet stars, this is their story. I’ve not heard of them either! Need to quiz the kids.
