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

We took all of the books written by Marissa Meyer 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.
