We’re halfway through the year (can you believe it?!) and if you’ve been keeping up with new releases, you’d probably agree it’s been another exciting year for bibliophiles. And if you haven’t read much this year, the good news is you’ve got enough time to catch up.

Amazon Books Editors just compiled their annual list of the Best Books of the Year So Far, and there are so many interesting tomes across categories, from fiction to memoir to historical reads. 

“Like our year-end list, the Best Books of the Year So Far is a culmination of months of passionate debate and careful consideration by our team, and features our top picks across genres,” Sarah Gelman, editorial director, Amazon Books, said in a press release. “One pick that our entire team was in full agreement on was our top selection, James, which builds on the trend of re-imagining American classics. This re-telling of the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a must-read for any type of reader.”
