Top 10 Most-Read Posts of August & September 2016


Eclectic Pop has recapped and linked to the Top 10 Most-Read Posts for both August and September. Check them out below…

August - Top 10 Recap: The final full month of summer 2016, saw readers trend towards movie reviews and the return of an old feature in rebooted form (Top 5). Out of the Top 10, half were movie reviews and 80% were movie-related, period.


If you are wondering how a 2013 review managed to crack the Top 10, there is an explanation. “Homefront” climbed its way to the #10 spot thanks to its selection as a #ThrowbackThursday and #FlashbackFriday movie review on social media. Why was it chosen? August saw the release of its star Jason Statham’s latest action adventure, “Mechanic: Resurrection”.

When it came to the #1 spot, 'Disorder': Top 5 Things You Need to Know ran away with a hefty lead over second place. The French thriller has already received the review treatment (you can read it here). We will see if it has the staying power its promotional predecessor enjoyed. 

Without further ado, here’s the complete list of the Top 10 Most-Read Posts for August…











September - Top 10 Recap: Sweet September saw movie reviews take up 3 slots. While reader’s musical interest on the site surged with the announcement of future plans for Eclectic Pop’s music section, (ICYMI read it here), the final playlist for Eclectic Selection and a new review for Eliza Neals’ album ‘Breaking and Entering’.

There was also a one-off piece (Why Figure Skaters Should Consider Music from 'Game of Thrones'…) that fused music and sports. As a fan of figure skating, the case had to be made for the new season of programs to include some musical choices from popular soundtracks. A girl can only hope the universe is listening. 

After a month-long hiatus, the Entertainment Inquiry returned with a new installment. “The Girl on the Train”, “Nocturnal Animals” and “Fifty Shades Darker” were just a few of the subjects broached in the latest edition. As for older posts, Eclectic Pop’s picks for the Top 5 Best TV Shows Streaming on Netflix gained new readers over the Labor Day Weekend thanks to the Twitter-sphere. 

Without further ado, here’s the complete list of the Top 10 Most-Read Posts for September…
