Our Top Ten Borrowed Fiction Books in 2017

Book Covers for Top Ten 2017 Books in Somerville

This year we have compiled our top 10 fiction checkouts for adults, young adults (teens), and children's books.

Gail Honeyman took the number one adult fiction spot this year with Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.  Paulette Jiles was a close second with News of the World.  In third place, The Stars are Fire by Anita Shreve. Somerville adult readers also showed a penchant for a good mystery in 2017.

Not surprisingly, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale from our YA Classics Collection came in first in the young adult category. Somerville teen and children readers really showed their love for manga and graphic novels this year as well.

Here are our 2017 lists for your enjoyment!
