After consulting The New York Times' Best Sellers List, Amazon's Top 100 Editor's Picks, and Goodreads' Most Popular Books of 2013, we've come up with a short list of the most common popular books. Here are the top five books in no particular order.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
A young boy in New York City, Theo Decker, miraculously survives an accident that takes the life of his mother. Alone and abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by a friend's family and struggles to make sense of his new life. In the years that follow, he becomes entranced by one of the few things that reminds him of his mother: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the art underworld. 'The Goldfinch' is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art.
