The 51 Most Read Books of the 2021 Goodreads Reading Challenge

"We've gathered below the 51 most read books of the 2021 Goodreads Reading Challenge, as determined by which titles readers have marked off as "read." (We take your word on these things.) These are titles generally categorized as adult books—YA is a whole other interesting story—and it's amazing to see the sheer variety and range of it all.

This year's list features old classics like The Great Gatsby and Wuthering Heights, modern classics like Where the Crawdads Sing and Mexican Gothic, and a constellation of literary fiction, mystery, romance and biography. It's encouraging to see a strong showing this year from books about mindfulness and mutual support. Plus Agatha Christie, of course."
