  If you often see the same books being read on your morning commute, it may be your cue to grab a copy yourself.



  Amazon just released its list of the 10 best-selling books of 2014, and chances are you've already seen people reading them on the train.

  亚马逊发布了其2014年最畅销Top 10书单,或许你已经在火车上看见过有人读这些书了。


  It's not too late to read —or reread —the bestsellers of the year.



  1."The Invention of Wings" by Sue Monk Kid:


  Set in the south in the early 1800s, this Oprah Book Club book follows the complicated relationship between Handful, a slave, and Sarah, her owner, as they grow up together from childhood. Their confusing friendship, in the face of politics and societal norms, becomes a beautiful and difficult thing to watch as it changes over time.



  2."Gray Mountain" by John Grisham:


  When the recession causes Samantha Kofer to lose her Wall Street law firm job, she takes a job at a legal aid clinic in Virginia until she can hopefully get back to big law. But while her new job, for the first time, puts her front and center in the court room, it also puts her in terrible danger.



  3."All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr:


  This National Book Award Finalist follows both Marie-Laure, a blind French girl living with her father during World War II, and Werner, a German orphan with a knack for building and fixing radios. As their paths cross, this haunting story will question how life and art are influenced by war.



    4."Twenty Seconds Ago (Jack Reacher, #19)" by Lee Child:


  After years of being out of the Army, Jack Reacher is pulled back into service at the CIA and State Department after someone tried to shoot the president of France. In Child's latest Jack Reacher installment, Reacher finds himself face to face with an old enemy and old memories.



  5."Big Little Lies" by Liane Moriarty:


  From the author of the bestselling "The Husband's Secret," this book focuses on three Australian moms, all with pre-schoolers in the same class.

  6."The Target (Will Robie series)" by David Baldacci:

    7."The Fixed Trilogy" by Laurelin Paige:


  Fans of "Fifty Shades of Gray" will love "The Fixed Trilogy," which follows Alayna Wither, a rising star at the nightclub she works at, and Hudson Pierce, her boss who can't keep his eyes off her, and who Alayna can't seem to stay away from despite both their troubled pasts.



  8."The Heroes of Olympus Book Five: The Blood of Olympus" by Rick Riordan:



  The fifth book in Riordan's hit series launches the reader right in the middle of the Argo II crew's battle with the earth mother, Gaia. The story is funny and action-packed as the crew races against time to stop Gaia and her giants before the world is destroyed.



  9."Top Secret Twenty-One (Stephanie Plum)" by Janet Evanovich:


  Stephanie Plum has to bring in a criminal used car dealer who missed his court date. But he's gone missing, and his No. 2 man is Stephanie's only clue and, to top it all off, now his old boss wants him dead. All in a day's work for Stephanie Plum.



  10."Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General" by Bill O'Reilly:


  Just one of two nonfiction books to make the list, "Killing Patton" takes a look into the mysterious death of General George Patton, Jr., and theories about what, or who, may have really killed him.
