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.
Atop our list this week (again!) is the adored Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton. A story of brotherhood, true love and the most unlikely of friendships, Boy Swallows Universe will be the most heartbreaking, joyous and exhilarating novel you’ll read all year. Congratulations to Trent on recently winning the ABIA Book of the Year award!
Number two on our list this week is Clive Cussler’s newest release, The Oracle. Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo return for a new adventure as they hunt for ancient treasure-that may or may not be cursed-in this thrilling addition to Cussler’s bestselling series.
Third on our list is Elizabeth Gilbert’s City of Girls, a bright and compulsively readable coming-of-age story cast against the heady, glamourous, and harsh world of 1940s New York.
At number four we have Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine?
At number five this week we have The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris – the incredible story of the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist and the woman he loved.
Sixth on our list this week is Jane Harper’s The Lost Man. For readers who loved The Dry and Force of Nature, Jane Harper has once again created a powerful story of suspense, set against a dazzling landscape.
The seventh book on our list this week is the newest collaboration between James Patterson and Candice Fox, two famed crime writers who have come together to write Hush Hush. This is the 4th book in Patterson’s Harriet Blue series, and this time she’s in prison… for murder.
At number eight this week we have The Night Window, a cracking new thriller from No.1 New York Times bestseller Dean Koontz. If you like Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne, you will love rogue FBI agent Jane Hawk.
Back on the list, coming in at number nine this week, is Liane Moriarty’s latest smash hit novel, Nine Perfect Strangers. With her wit, compassion and uncanny understanding of human behaviour, Moriarty explores the depth of connection that can be formed when people are thrown together in unconventional circumstances.
A new addition, at number ten this week, is Armando Lucas Correa’s new book, The Daughter’s Tale. Based on the true story of the Nazi massacre of a French village in 1944, The Daughter’s Tale is an unforgettable tale of love and redemption.
