3rd. Kiera Cass The Selection

Beliebtester LovelyBooks Autor / Most Popular LovelyBooks Author

1st. Kerstin Gier

2nd. Ursula Poznanski

3rd. Kai Meyer

I noticed that there is a lot of young adult fiction and series in these categories. So both are still quite popular. I don’t seem to be quite mainstream, as my personal favorites didn’t make it to the top three in their categories. Me Before You is the winner of the Novel category though 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this one, next post will be promised interview!
