Facebook knows a lot about our lives whether we like it or not, so we believe them when they claim that Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games is the most-read book of 2012.

A very interesting list published by Facebook as part of their year-in-review reveals that Collins’ entire trilogy takes up the top three spots in the most-read list.

The release of The Hunger Games film certainly piqued the interest of pop culture cravers, and we suspect the books will reign supreme for another year or two as Catching Fire and Mockingjay get transferred to the big screen.

Meanwhile, E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey came in as the fourth most-read of the year. Followed, surprisingly, by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. We don’t have an explanation for why the book did so well but we’re thrilled to learn there are many new muggles coming on board the wizarding series.

Most Read Books of 2012:

1) The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1) – Suzanne Collins
2) Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2) – Suzanne Collins
3) Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) – Suzanne Collins
4) Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1) -E.L. James
5) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter, #1) – J.K. Rowling
6) The Help – Kathryn Stockett
7) Twilight (Twilight, #1) – Stephenie Meyer
8) To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
9) The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
10) Water for Elephants – Sara Gruen

Are there any other surprises you see on the list? Facebook’s report comes on the heels of interesting best-of-2012 stats from Google and iTunes.

    I’m surprised to NOT see John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars on there…and that Water for Elephants is on this list.

    As much as I love Hunger Games and Harry Potter, it also makes me really happy that To Kill a Mockingbird and The Great Gatsby are on this list.

    As much as books like Sorcerer’s Stone and Hunger Games deserve to be on this list, it makes me very happy that To Kill a Mockingbird and The Great Gatsby are on it as well.

    someone tell me why there is no John Green and Rick Riordan books??

    • HarryHungerAvater12

      okay in my opinion I don’t think Rick Riordan’s books aren’t as popular than the other.

    I’m very happy with this list, some of which I still have to read myself. I really want to read Water For Elephants.

    Hey, I totally wrote a fb status about HPSS…but it was the movie. Do you think they counted it??

    Water for Elephants is really odd. But I’m glad it’s up there!

    personally im a sucker for mythology so what riordan writes i pretty much read, but i’ve also read atleast 6 of the other books and can i see why they are up there

    I’m surprised To Kill A Mockingbird is on there because it’s such a boring read, IMHO. I Sparknoted the crap out of that book back in 9th grade. I’ve never read The Help or Water For Elephants but they seem interesting enough.
