I thought this would be a fun, quick post to do! This is all according to ratings on Goodreads with #1 being the one with the most ratings. That’s pretty much all there is to it too, so enjoy and let me know if you’ve read any of these!
16.) Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Goodreads Ratings: 292,000+
I mean it’s Neil Gaiman so of course I’m keeping it!
15.) The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Goodreads Ratings: 318,000+
I really liked “The Monstrumologist” by Yancey and I think alien invasion books sound neat as hell.
14.) Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Goodreads Ratings: 318,000+
It’s kind of my mission in life to read all the popular/staple YA fantasy books so this one of them!
13.) Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Goodreads Ratings: 332,000+
Keeping all Neil Gaiman!
12.) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Goodreads Ratings: 335,000+
Another book I’m just really not sure I’ll like but it’s so hyped I want to try it.
11.) Shiver by Maggie Steifvater
Goodreads Ratings: 384,000+
Well not sure if I’ll enjoy this one since it was part of the whole YA paranormal romance phase but I really like Maggie Steifvater…..
10.) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Goodreads Ratings: 420,000+
Yeah, I’m not really sure if I’ll actually enjoy this one or not but Rowell is one of those authors that is so popular that I feel like I should at least give her a try.
9.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Goodreads Ratings: 507,000+
An epic fantasy that I’m super excited to read…eventually…because it’s also kind of intimidating.
8.) Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Goodreads Ratings: 473,000+
I read “The Husband’s Secret” and while it wasn’t anything spectacular it was a pretty addictive read and what I would classify as a “guilty pleasure” book even though I have no problem saying I read it. It’s just not my usual genre. Anyways I do want to give this other book of Moriarty’s a read especially since HBO has the mini series!
7.) The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Goodreads Ratings: 515,000+
Still kind of ashamed of myself for not reading this one yet, but I have the complete series so there’s no excuse. It’s on my TBR for the year too! Riordan books of course are always pretty popular.
6.) It by Stephen King
Goodreads Ratings: 569,000+
This one is going to be a doozy when I get to it, it’s so long!
5.) Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
Goodreads Ratings: 681,000+
Well one of the reasons I have this on my TBR at all is dinosaurs…..everyone needs a good dinosaur book right?
4.) The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Goodreads Ratings: 1,000,000+
I read part of it and it’s hilarious, can’t wait to read the rest!
3.) Eragon by Christopher Paolini
Goodreads Ratings: 1,200,000+
Yeaaaaah……as big of a fantasy fan as I am I still haven’t read this one and it sort of is a staple in YA books I feel like.
2.) The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Goodreads Ratings: 3,000,000+
Probably one of the few classics I would have enjoyed reading in school but we just never did. I have my own copy and will give it a read eventually but it’s not going anywhere!
1.) Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone: Illustrated Edition
Goodreads Ratings: 5,000,000+
And of course anything Harry Potter related is going to be at the top of the list! Even though I have read the non-illustrated edition I still think this can count as separate on my TBR.
