message 28: by Megan (new)

Megan Thank you! It's been crazy, but I'm excited to get my challenge rolling :) I didn't even come close to 100 last year. This year I'm being a bit more realistic with 50 ;)


message 29: by Sara (new)

Sara I'm pretty certaint hat "Life Mastery" is spam. TWELVE (12) people in total have rated the novel, and it still have 7 votes on this list... and most of those who have voted are new members with only 4-10 books in total on Goodreads and have all voted for only Life Mastery on a lot of other lists...

My spam radar is tingling.

Bonnie Sara wrote: "I'm pretty certaint hat "Life Mastery" is spam. TWELVE (12) people in total have rated the novel, and it still have 7 votes on this list... and most of those who have voted are new members with onl..."

Ditto that.. thankfully it'll have disappeared by the end of the year!


message 31: by Kat (new)

Kat Is there a way to report books on these lists as spam? I don't see a way to do it and I can see at least one spam book, myself.


message 32: by Shannon (new)

Shannon I don't think there is Kat. There is always one book every year that gets spammed to the top of the list. It's a shame that some people can't just play fair.


message 33: by Penny (new)

Penny Shannon wrote: "I don't think there is Kat. There is always one book every year that gets spammed to the top of the list. It's a shame that some people can't just play fair."

It actually tells me that it is not a book worth reading - if you have to spam it like that, then the writing is clearly not strong enough to stand on its own. And if not strong enough, then not readable. What a waste of their time too...


message 34: by Sara (new)

Sara I went through the entire list looking for a Kiera Cass novel and noticed that some novels by Cassandra Clare are listed multiple times. Is there some way to add them together?

Hey Sara I removed the duplicates so all the different editions should be combined now


message 36: by Aubrey (new)

Aubrey The fact that 'Me Before You' is topping this list is horrifying. It looks like Goodreads is fulll of eugenishits this year.

Megan Aubrey wrote: "The fact that 'Me Before You' is topping this list is horrifying. It looks like Goodreads is fulll of eugenishits this year."

I haven't read it, but I read the synopsis and reviews of the movie. I can't help but wonder, why would people want to glorify that? How is that even remotely romantic? "I'd rather die than be disabled!" Really??


message 38: by ChrisP (new)

ChrisP Poyner I went through the first 3000 books on this list. Than I added based on the reminder of my 2016 books read. I hope I didn't put a book on twice. Please let me know if I shouldn't do that.

Some of us occasionally go through and merge any duplicates. You should be fine.


message 40: by Kylie (last edited Nov 09, 2016 04:49PM) (new)

Kylie Is it OK to remove books that are clearly spam (#93, The Show) or does the list administrator do that?

Are you absolutely sure it's spam?As a fellow librarian, I'd normally say go ahead. I too clean up lists from time to time, as there is no list administrator to do this, as far as I know. But as to cleaning up this list... The description says 'What we've read so far in 2016', so who's to know if something is spam or not? Although I must say, in this case, when 11 people only vote for one single book, I tend to agree with you :-)

Same here, although this book does appear to have legit reviews on it (I think I saw 30?) and it was only published this year, so they are all technically within the read period. I'm not going to dig too far because I don't care enough (lol) but while maybe the author encouraged people to vote for this on Listopia lists, I don't think it's a spam vote as the people *did* read it this year.

I'm normally all for removing spam because it skews the results. But I think in this case it may just be legit.

I know, there is no way of telling whether the votes are legit or not. Gosh, I do so hate circle voting....

J_BlueFlower Funny how old books sometimes surface. ”And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie is now #62. No Agatha Christie in top 100 in 2014 or 2015.

Didn't a "And Then There Were None" mini series run like... in the beginning of the year? Filmatizations tend make novels more popular.

Penny What a year huh. Filmatizations (oh, I loved that coined word) seemed to figure a lot in the tally system (why can't we call it a tally rather than a vote???). Being in New Zealand we are often behind in the film-seeing world and I watched my list (2016 books read by women born in the 1970s) get swamped in it as 'The Girl on the Train' re-headed to number 1 and 'Me Before You' swept back in to number 3. At first I didn't understand, figuring that most of us on the list had read the titles already, but then 'oh, I see, it's been turned into a film' as the films arrived in NZ. I never understand watching a movie then reading the book. Fastest way to disappointment really. The author gets blamed for not being the same as the movie often, when realistically the story arc of a movie has to be set differently than the story arc of a novel. Similar but different.
OK I'm going to shut up now, I could go on about this for DAYS if not WEEKS and we've only a couple of days left for this year.
Looking forward to next year's list Buggy, hope you're going to run it!
