It’s not often you hear a book reviewer like Andrew Scott ask what’s worth reading right this moment, but that’s exactly what he did.
In the past, we’ve been lucky enough to have had a handful of books reviewed by the likes of Scott and his colleague Ian MacLeod, who review a range of books for a number of publications including Forbes, Business Insider, The Guardian, The Times, The Atlantic, The Verge, The Wall Street Journal and more.
So what are the books we should be reading right at this moment?
The Guardian’s James Murdoch recently asked readers to pick a book they think is worth reading at this time and the results were very, very varied.
But here’s what we found when we looked at the book review average.
The Guardian ranked its top 10 picks in order of the average rating (based on the number of reviews).
There were some pretty surprising results when you consider that the number one book that people picked to read right now is actually the book that’s been on the bestseller list for the last decade.
The New York Times Book Review’s list of the Top 10 Books for 2017 has a title that reads like a dream.
But the fact is, a lot of the top books are also books that you’d expect to have been on that list for a while now.
For example, the New York Daily News book reviewer gave the book Four Little Words to Know.
The title says it all, it’s a book about four little words, and it’s the book I picked to listen to during the election.
And the Daily Mail had a Top 10 Pick for this week in its list of Best Books for Women and Girls.
But the book was a perennial winner of the Daily Book of the Year award.
So here are the top 10 books you should be picking up right now.
