Harry and Albus Potter in the stage version of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child."

Harry Potter reigned supreme in 2016.


The series remains among the most popular books, and the latest edition of the canon, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," nabbed the top spot, according to Google's ranking of the top books of the year.

The books and graphic novels were ranked based on their popularity in the Google Play store. But they weren't necessarily published this year - in fact, Dale Carnegie's "How To Win Friends and Influence People" still made the list, despite being first published in 1936.
