There is surprisingly little overlap between this list and Amazon's Top 100. You might remember I lamented that Amazon didn't include The Radium Girls, which won History & Biography here, or What It Means When a Man Falls From the Sky, which was nominated for Best Fiction here, but did not win. In fact, the only books from this list that made Amazon's list were Little Fires Everywhere (2), The Sun and Her Flowers (60), and The Hate U Give (21).
I've added many of these books to my reading list. In fact, The Radium Girls has been sitting on my to-read shelf for months now, and I keep picking up Sleeping Beauties in the bookstore, only to put it back down and tell myself not to buy it until I'm ready to read it.
I may have a book problem, but I'm kind of okay with it...
