Amazon Books is one of the biggest booksellers in the world, and so you can assume they know a thing or two about literature. Every year, the Amazon editors get together and they select their ten best books of the year. The 2016 list is now out, and it’s a fine old mix!
The editors said “In the end, we picked [the top book] for a few reasons: first, it’s a great piece of literature, second, it’s the one that stuck with us the most, and third, it’s a book you look forward to picking back up.” And that seems to us a good enough reason to make something book of the year!
We know you’re always looking for suggestions, so we’re replicating the list here. According to Amazon, here are the top ten books of 2016. (Captions from Amazon).
We’d have to agree on the number 1, and what a fantastic top ten full of diverse and interesting reads. Lots of these titles were shortlisted for literary awards and included in prominent reading lists this year too.
We’ll be asking you for your opinion soon for the people’s choice for the For Reading Addicts Book of the year!
