These Were the Most Popular Books at Mississauga’s Libraries in 2018


Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to read more in 2019?

If it is, you might want to get your book from one of Mississauga’s many libraries. Believe it or not, the ever-evolving Mississauga Library System has 18 libraries located across the city. All libraries have WiFi, computer workstations, word processing and USB capability—so they’re actually an ideal spot to work remotely or catch up on your reading.

And while you might have gotten an e-reader for Christmas, nothing beats the feeling of a crisp page between your fingers.

If you want to start reading (or are looking for more books to consume), here’s a look at some of the most popular titles that were checked out of Mississauga’s libraries in 2018.

Top 10 Adult Fiction Books

It looks like some beloved authors are still drawing readers. Some books that readers flocked to? The Rooster Bar by John Grisham, Origin by Dan Brown, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See (also, read See’s Shanghai Girls if you want to experience more Asian fiction after gobbling up the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy) and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.

Top 10 Non-Fiction Books

Mississauga residents were into non-fiction this year, and some titles they couldn’t get enough of included Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff, How to Be a Bawse by Lilly Singh (a Canadian YouTube sensation who hails from nearby Scarborough), Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil Degrasse Tyson and Quiet by Susan Cain.

Top 10 Young Adult Novels

It also looks like youthful are still enjoying the young adult genre (it is, after all, the genre that brought us Harry Potter, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Hate U Give). Some popular books for 2018 include The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (read and watch if you want to cry a lot), Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen-Fernlund and Renegades by Marissa Meyer.
