A new season begins, and no doubt, as the letter changes, so do the recommended reading lists. And why not? Winter is coming, and you’re going to need all the books you can get your hands on.

To do this, I read a total of 25 lists from 22 outlets, which combined recommended 354 different books – probably enough to keep the fire going for a while longer. (Metaphorically speaking, that is.) Then I compiled the results to find out which books were the most recommended books in the literary universe this season. Celeste Ng’s latest book, as you’ll see, outdoes all the other books, although Cormac McCarthy beats her overall (although, as you probably know, he’s got two related novels coming out this year, with only a few Firsts listed) . Below you’ll find a list of the most popular books — and hopefully something good to read.
