Ranking Author Charlotte Brontë’s Best Books (A Bibliography Countdown)

“What are Charlotte Brontë’s Best Books?” We looked at all of Brontë’s authored bibliography and ranked them against one another to answer that very question!

We took all of the books written by Charlotte Brontë and looked at their Goodreads, Amazon, and LibraryThing scores, ranking them against one another to see which books came out on top. The books are ranked in our list below based on which titles have the highest overall score between all 3 review sites in comparison with all of the other books by the same author. The process isn’t super scientific and in reality, most books aren’t “better” than other books as much as they are just different. That being said, we do enjoy seeing where our favorites landed, and if you aren’t familiar with the author at all, the rankings can help you see what books might be best to start with.

The full ranking chart is also included below the countdown on the bottom of the page.

Happy Scrolling!
