My All-Time Top Nine Blog Posts- Blogiversary Edition

My top nine most-viewed posts aren't what I would have predicted but it's really neat to see what you all are interested in reading. I don't have sponsor links on my reviews, so it's impossible to say which reviews have generated the most sales (if any) but here we go with my top nine.

Why nine? Because that's what Blogger will give me in terms of statistics.

The most-viewed review on my blog is The Master and Margarita: the Graphic Novel, by Mikhail Bulgakov and art by Andrzej Kimowski and Danusia Scheibal. I used to do a graphic novel review every week! This is a fun one but not one I would have thought would be so popular.

#2: Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese. This is one of my all-time favorites and one I doubt I would have read without this blog. I got to meet Verghese at a book signing in Cambridge and he was super nice. Like way nicer than average. And the book is just, wow.

#3: Mudbound, by Hillary Jordan. Haha, my number one negative review is #3 overall. The comments on this post are the best. I love you guys.

#4: Sarah's Key, by Tatiana de Rosnay. This book was super-popular and remains so. The movie was excellent and the book is not without its merits.

#5: FTC FAQ for Book Bloggers. This is a guest post that my husband wrote, when this stuff was a hot topic in the book blogging community. It remains a popular and often-viewed post, testament that it's still important to this community.

#6: Read-a-Thon 9am Post: For some reason, lots of you were really interested in the read-a-thon I did one time, to make a dent in my graphic novel backlog. Okay!

#7: We return to reviews with The Dinner, by Herman Koch. This book blew me away. So riveting and emotionally devastating, it's also very divisive and was a big book-club book when it came out in paperback. I still hand sell it all the time.

#8 The Wedding of Zein, by Tayib Salih. Oh how I loved this short, wonderful book. Go read it. Please.  It really makes me happy to see so much attention given to my review of this delightful novel. I hope lots of you went out and read it, too.

#9: My 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. It's a little dated, but the recommendations are still solid! Glad you all find it useful.
