A December ritual is the publication of “best of” lists (we wrote one, too!). Handily, last year, Quartz combined 36 of best of book lists into one to see which books could be considered the best of the best. But, as this is just based on critics lists, we wanted to go a little further. Taking the fiction books from Quartz’s list we added more dimensions: average Goodreads rating, number of 1-star ratings, and for those strapped for time, page length, comparing all of them to one of last year’s bestsellers, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, to see how critical picks measure up to market leaders. Which one will you read?
