I love a good thriller!
So when I saw the headline in a recent edition of The Advertiser: Crime fiction, thrillers and then romance are the most borrowed books of the year I felt satisfied that I most probably was among the stats that had been collected for the writing of this article.
I’m a sucker for flicking through the weekend paper and checking out the top 10 reads and then peeking at the week’s best recommended reads even though I very rarely go off looking to read those that appear on the lists.
But when I come to an end of year list, such as those published in this article, I find myself feeling kind of warm and fuzzy realizing that I’ve been enjoying the same books that many others have enjoyed over the year.
Have a read through the short article – it’s quite interesting – but if you can’t be bothered, here’s the 2016 listing for the Most Borrowed Fiction:
1. The Girl On The Train (2015) Paula Hawkins
2. Make Me (2015) Lee Child
3. Personal (2014) Lee Child
4. The Burning Room (2014) Michael Connelly
5.The Rosie Effect (2015) Graeme Simsion
6. Never Go Back (2013) Lee Child
7. The Rosie Project (2013) Graeme Simsion
8. Gone Girl (2012) Gillian Flynn
9. The Road Back (2014) Di Morrissey
10. The Gods of Guilt (2013) Michael Connelly
Have we shared the joy of reading many of these books over the last year?!
