Archives - Reading Group Guides Newsletter

Well, after the Oscar drama of last night, we double-checked our new feature with a listing of the Most Requested Guides for 2016. Our lists note the guides that were most requested in two categories --- New Favorites and Ongoing Favorites. The top selection in New Favorites was THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah, which some of you may remember also was selected as your favorite title that you read with your book group in 2016, and it was the runner-up to A MAN CALLED OVE in the list of books you most loved reading for pleasure in 2016.

Your selections for Best Books of 2016 are in. We asked you to share your favorites from last year --- both books that you read with your group, as well as your favorite individual reads. In both categories you loved THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah and Fredrik Backman’s A MAN CALLED OVE. For the titles that you read with your book group, THE NIGHTINGALE was the most popular selection while A MAN CALLED OVE was the top selection when asked about your favorite reads beyond your book group. And each was your second choice on the opposite list!
