2012: Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James

Final position in Top 100: #1

Top-selling book of the year (if different): N/A

Another year, another blockbuster trilogy: E L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey took the top spot on the Amazon 100 list in 2012, impressively followed by both sequels: Fifty Shades Darker came in at No. 2 and Fifty Shades Free rounded out the list in third place. The books sold so well that a boxed trilogy of all three titles held down the No. 6 spot on the list. Interestingly, if you weren’t reading the Fifty Shades trilogy, you were probably reading The Hunger Games: The three books in Collins’ series ended the year in the 4th, 7th, and 8th position, respectively.
