Here's What Everyone Was Reading In 2015, According To Amazon

Have you read Paula Hawkins The Girl On The Train yet? Well, if not you might be one of the few people who hasn’t.

Amazon have announced their list of the top 20 best-selling books for 2015 and the debut thriller comes in at the top, the best-selling book of the year. It was also the best-selling Kindle book and the most ‘wished for’ book on the site.

The rest of the list was a diverse list of history, mystery, thrills and non fiction. There are even a couple of colouring books, one of which is apparent stress-relieving!

Coming in second, somewhat unsurprisingly given that the film was one of the most hyped of the year, was E.L.James’ version of Fifty Shades of Grey as told from the point of view of Christian Grey’s, Grey.

At number three was Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman which was actually an early draft of what then became our GCSE English favourite To Kill A Mockingbird.

1. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
