It's never easy to determine what really makes a book qualify as one of the "best" of the year — but that didn't stop us from trying to do just that! Our totally unscientific algorithm took into account bestseller lists, the world's most prestigious book awards, and the personal favorites of POPSUGAR editors. So while no "best books" list can be definitive, we think ours represents a roundup of the books that made an impact on our culture and conversations, stirred our hearts, and will stay stuck in our brains well after 2016 is long gone.
