Top Fic 2017Moriarty, Backman, Picoult, Grisham… very few of the titles on this list are a surprise. But did you know that Lisa Ko, author of our third most popular book of 2017, was raised right here in Allendale?

Top NF 2017It seems Allendale residents love a good laugh, as memoirs from comedians Trevor Noah and Amy Schumer both cracked our top nonfiction list!

Top Movies 2017It was incredibly popular when we showed it for new movie Tuesday, so it’s no surprise that La La Land was your favorite movie of 2017 (even if it didn’t win an Oscar for Best Picture).

Top YA FicMore than four years after initial publication, Scarlet is still holding strong as our most popular YA novel of 2017.

Top YA GraphAnd perennial favorite Raina Telgemeier tops the YA graphic novel list with Smile.

Top JFICWe wonder if this year’s movie adaptation of Wonder played a role in its popularity for 2017.

Top JGraphDav Pilkey has been popular with kids since Ms. Alessandra was in elementary school. His latest graphic novel series, Dog Man, joins his other titles (Captain Underpants, Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot, etc.) as a smash hit!

Top Picture 2017And of course Mo Willems tops our favorite picture books of 2017!


We hope you enjoyed this little peek at our top circulating titles of 2017. We wonder if any of these books will show up on next year’s lists!
