message 3: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell umm it seems like sequels have crept on here. And the list description seems pretty clear that items with numbers in a series at least shouldn't be here. Which is somewhere around 50 of the top 100.


message 4: by Celia (new)

Celia Description says "no sequels" so shouldn't only the first Harry Potter book be on the list? If someone confirms then I can delete the sequels as a librarian...

message 8: by Celia (new)

Celia In all I deleted over 100 books for not meeting the list criteria of 1) having a > 4.3 avg rating, 2) having more than 1000 ratings, and 3) not being a sequel.

HOWEVER, I did leave books that were sequels IF they were the first book in the series to reach the > 4.3 avg rating. For example, the first book of Mortal Instruments has a < 4.3 avg rating, but the second book has a > 4.3 avg rating, so I left the second book on the list, but deleted all subsequent sequels regardless of avg rating.

Someone may get really harsh and delete those sequels as well, but I did not feel justified in doing so.


Claire (Clairby11xxx) Removed for ratings dropping below 4.3:

The Fault in Our Stars
Me Before You
Slammed

Removed sequels as they do not qualify for this list as per the creators description at the top:

Scarlet
Golden Son
City of Glass
The Titan's Curse
Magic Burns
Onyx
Blood Bound
Saga, Vol. 2
Blue Lily, Lily Blue
Never Fade
Frostbite
Cursor's Fury
One Salt Sea

There are still a couple of collections on the list like The Complete Sherlock Holmes that I didn't feel comfortable deleting as I couldn't see their individual books on the list and they had multiple votes. Someone else may decide they should be removed but I wasn't 100%!

However, it is listed as being the Riyria Revelations #5-6 and is therefore a SEQUEL and should be removed.

It is number 100."


It's been removed.

Celia Heidi wrote: "Smoke by Ellen Hopkins and The Truth of the Matter by Andrew Klavan both meet the standrads of 4.3 and 1000 ratings but are both sequels.

They are numbers 201 and 202."


Thanks, Heidi. Both deleted.

They are numbers 198 and 195."


Deleted these as well as Lords of the North.

And the Two Towers, though it pained me...

edit: deleted about 30 books that did not meet list criteria.

Whoever gets rid of all those Far Side books (aside from the first one, of course), will be my hero.


message 15: by Elyse (new)

Elyse Deleted #104 Ugly Love, #136 The Deal, #139 Team of Rivals (argh), #145 Born Survivors, and #290 When Marnie Was There. All have fallen below 4.30.
