There's no denying that Amazon has pretty much taken over the retail industry at this point. It is the go-to website for just about everyone when you need to find anything, from clothing and makeup to food to entertainment. With Amazon Prime memberships skyrocketing in number and fewer people going to actual stores, it is no surprise that Amazon has had another banner year when it comes to sales.

Now, they have released their list of the best-selling things of 2016, and let's take a look at just what people have streamed, purchased, and reviewed:
