Readers Top 100: The Final List

108 actually. I had a tied situation, 14 books with the same score. So, I either included all of them and go over 100, or none of them and go under. I chose over.

This has been a really interesting list to piece together, I’m thrilled with the range of titles we have. The diversity we have in our community is clear and there is a great variety of genres and a good mix of indie and trad published books.

The list has now been alphabetised by title; I am not publishing any more rankings. So, without further delay, presenting a Readers Top 100…

One thought on “Readers Top 100: The Final List

  1. Ah now if that is ‘Women Of The Other World’ by Kelley Armstrong that’s a sneaky move as that’s a series !
    Love this more diverse list and its indie focus!
