I t was a year when the No 1 book was a play script. When the anonymous, insanely difficult GCHQ Puzzle Book was 43rd, and so beat super-sellers like Patterson and Ian Rankin , not to mention all those much-hyped hygge books. The all-year sales rankings for are full of such surprises, as befits an unpredictable year, but also contain much that is comfortingly recognisable, such as the ghosts of Christmas charts past at the top. The vlogger Zoe Zoella Sugg, the colouring book artist Millie Marotta and the healthy eating evangelist Ella Woodward, for example, all did less well, although they were far from falling out of the charts. Otherwise, when picking literary novels, readers seemingly sent a tacit message to judging panels, going for books by the reliable old favourites — Sebastian Faulks 41 , William Boyd 77 , Kazuo Ishiguro 85 — that they had rejected.

Bestselling books 2016: the ghosts of Christmas charts past

October's crop of recommended reading provides both warnings and wisdom from the past, with a deftly executed novella about Europe's freefall into the Second World War and an anthology of eye-opening missives from history's good, bad and ugly. Elsewhere, we follow a compelling Nigerian tale of sisterly love and mass murder, and take our seats aboard the magical sleigh, Frostheart. Hitler's manipulative, insidious path to Austrian invasion told with dead-pan documentary realism and deliciously understated irony, The Order of the Day is a mordantly funny and darkly disturbing novella. Curated with immense skill and eye for intriguing juxtapositions by Simon Sebag Montefiore , the one hundred plus letters contained within Written in History provide a fascinating window into the private and public lives of history's greatest figures. Arranged thematically this collection of correspondence provides an enlightening parallel narrative to the linear march of conventional history, and includes missives by everybody from Rameses to Trump, by way of Elizabeth I and Nelson Mandela. Sharp, menacing and darkly funny, this debut novel from Nigerian author Oyinkan Braithwaite is not just an inventive take on the serial-murder thriller but also a tender examination of sibling relationships in an oppressively patriarchal society. Wonderfully democratic and inclusive, this anthology reflects the favourite poems of Great Britain, as chosen by everyone from world-famous astronauts to primary school teachers.
