Top Five Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful Shanah at Bionic Book Worm.
For this week’s topic I thought it would be fun to go to my Goodreads and sort my “want to read” by number of ratings. These are five books on my TBR with a high number of ratings on Goodreads.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
# of Goodreads Reviews: 1,548,374
2020 is the year I will finally read Jane Eyre. I know I have said this many times, but trust me, it is true! I actually purchased the audiobook, so the odds of this actually happening have increased exponentially! It is interesting to me that of all of the classics I have on my TBR, it is Jane Eyre that is most popular.
Good Omens by Terry Patchett and Neil Gaiman
# of Goodreads Reviews: 501,505
Technically American Gods by Neil Gaiman has more reviews, but I have talked about how in going to read that book for years now that it is just embarrassing at this point! I actually started the audiobook for Good Omens at one point and was enjoying it. I don’t know what distracted me, but I hope to return to it soon.
11/22/63 by Stephen King
# of Goodreads Reviews: 397,467
There are a number of Stephen King books I’m intrigued by, but 11/22/63 is the one that calls to me the most. I like that it is different from the majority of his other words. I’m a huge fan of speculative fiction, so I have high hopes for this one!
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
# of Goodreads Reviews: 319,583
I knew that this book was popular, but had no idea it was quite this popular. I have owned The Great Alone since it was released, but I have been wary of it since I have an unpopular opinion of The Nightingale. That being said, the premise of The Great Alone sounds like something I would enjoy.
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
# of Goodreads Reviews: 288,623
Station Eleven is a book I know I will love and have been meaning to read for years. I’m thinking it hits a little close to home right now, so it is going to have to wait a little bit longer. I did read Mandel’s latest released and very much enjoyed her writing.
