Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic was supposed to be about books we loved that have less than 2,000 GR ratings, but I do underrated faves lists from time to time and wanted to do something I hadn’t done before. I once did a post where I listed the most widely-read books on my TBR, so I thought I’d do a spin on that:
the most widely-read books I gave 4+ stars!
To figure out this list, I went to my Goodreads “read” shelf, sorted by number of ratings, and picked out the top 10 that I’d given 4+ stars.
I opted to only use 1 book per series, because otherwise, literally this entire list was going to be the Harry Potter series and Hunger Games trilogy. ?
1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone — J. K. Rowling
number of ratings: 5,770,114
average rating: 4.46 (my rating: 5)
