Of all the books published over the last 12 months, which were the very best?
We wanted to get a sense of the consensus, so we aggregated 23 different Best of 2014 lists — from The Washington Post to Library Journal to Buzzfeed and more. Then we compiled rankings based on the number of times each book was listed.
Below you’ll find an infographic that highlights the top-ranked books. (We created separate infographics for books in the romance, mystery and thriller, business, young adult, and nonfiction categories.)
We hope you find some great new books on these lists — we certainly did!
What’s missing from this list? Are there any remarkable books published in 2014 that didn’t make it?
