Summer’s almost gone; it’s time to look toward fall and the quickening pace of literary events in Seattle. Before leaving the alleged lazy season behind, here’s a brief look at the books our region’s readers read this summer.
The most accessible way to measure the popularity of books at the King County Library System and at the Seattle Public Library is to look at the number of holds placed on books.
Here were the top adult fiction titles at KCLS toward the end of August:
“Truly, Madly, Guilty” by Liane Moriarty
“The Woman in Cabin 10” by Ruth Ware
“A Great Reckoning” by Louise Penny
“Night School” by Lee Child
“The Girls” by Emma Cline
