Most Popular/Highest Rated TBR Books


I’m doing this super fun post that I saw Avery (who was in turn inspired by Destiny) do!

Here’s Avery’s blurb on it:

The aim is to sort your Goodreads TBR shelf according to the number of ratings (“num ratings”) and share the books which are the most popular.

When I tried it out the other day I thought it was really interesting alternating between the most popular books and the highest rated books on my TBR because those two things are very different. So I’m going to divide this post into most popular versus highest rated for a fun comparison! As there are quite a few books which appeared on my highest rated list that either hadn’t been reviewed as the book isn’t released yet (and no ARCs released) or only had less than 5 reviews, I will only be including books that have been released (including ARCs) and that have more than 30 reviews.

I’ll be following the same set of rules for this, except for highest-rated I will only be including books that have already been officially published (no ARCs). 🙂
