Final position in Top 100: #1
Top-selling book of the year (if different): N/A
In 2019, fiction bounced back: Delia Owens’ debut novel bested two megapopular memoirs, Becoming by Michelle Obama (No. 2) and Educated by Tara Westover (#3), to take the top spot on the Amazon 100 (though not without controversy). In addition to being selected for Reese Witherspoon’s book club, Where the Crawdads Sing is expected to become a feature film adaptation produced by Witherspoon along with Fox 2000.
