We pride ourselves with picking trends in reading, and that’s why we’re thrilled to see so many of our favourite, recently reviewed Aussie fiction writers in the Top 10 Bestselling Fiction list.
At number one we have Past Tense by Lee Child – the most hotly anticipated thriller of 2018 that follows our hero Jack Reacher on a quest into his father’s past, and climaxes in the most stomach-clenching, hair-raising, blood-curling, ticking-time-bomb of an adventure yet.
At number two this week we have Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty – a beautifully observed book about a ten-day retreat at boutique health-and-wellness resort Tranquillum House that promises healing and transformation.
At number three this week we have The Three Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly. With the end of all things rapidly approaching, Jack must find the Three Secret Cities, three incredible lost cities of legend.
At number four this week we have The Lost Man by Jane Harper – a powerful story of suspense, set against a dazzling landscape.
At number five this week we have Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak making an appearance on the list. Zusak makes his long-awaited return with a profoundly heartfelt and inventive novel about a family held together by stories, and a young life caught in the current: a boy in search of greatness, as a cure for a painful past.
At number six we have The Reckoning by John Grisham – the story of an unthinkable murder, the bizarre trial that followed it, and its profound and lasting effect on the people of Ford County.
At number seven we have Fire and Blood by George R. R. Martin – a definitive history of Westeros’s past as told by Archmaester Gyldayn.
At number eight we have Dark Sacred Night by Michael Connelly – detectives Ballard and Bosch join forces in a blockbuster crime thriller from the #1 bestseller.
At number nine we have Arcadia by Di Morrissey – a breathtaking Tasmanian tale of ancient forests; of art and science; of love and, above all, of friendship.
At number ten we have The Pearl Thief by Fiona McIntosh – a confronting and heart-stopping novel that explores whether love and hope can ever overpower atrocity in a time of war and hate.
