fiction-bestToday, the availability of different book titles that range from a wide array of categories and writing styles has drawn many readers and bookworms to read more than ever. It can be difficult to keep up with which titles are great reads and which aren’t worth checking out. Many of us only get to have so much time sometimes and we want to spend this on quality reading. From the most popular authors to writers who are just starting to get their voices heard out there, it is the job of the readers to appreciate their work of art.

I love all kinds of books. I’ll read any genre as long as the story is good, but my all-time favorites are fiction and mystery thrillers. There’s nothing quite like being on the edge of your seat until you know what’ll happen next! So to my fellow fiction-lovers out there, here are some of the best-selling titles for literature and fiction as well as suspense and thrillers. Take a pick and let us know how you think the books did!

Literature and Fiction

  • Gone Girl: A Novel – the new story by author Gillian Flynn finally takes the top spot in the Fiction category after another famous title (Fifty Shades of Grey) has reigned supreme for almost five months.
