The Weekly Top 10 Fiction Bestseller List

Although Echoes in Death by J. D. Robb hasn’t been on the shelf for very long, it takes the Number 1 spot on this week’s bestselling fiction charts! Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman sits comfortably at Number 4, while new thriller The Girl Before by J. P. Delaney – the pen name for a still unidentified crime writer – is at Number 5.

There are a few screen adaptation tie-ins on this weeks’ list, indicating the eager anticipation for their counterparts. At Number 2 is Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies, while A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron sits at Number 7 and The Girl on the Train at Number 9. Of course Liane Moriarty remains a ferocious presence in the bestselling charts, with books Truly Madly Guilty,  Big Little Lies, and The Husband’s Secret maintaining their roaring popularity.

And to finish it off, well-loved novelist Joanna Trollope takes the Number 10 spot with her latest book City of Friends.

    Girl on the train was so overrated. I do not understand the fascination. The Dressmaker was awesome! When is the next book club? We have our own but would love to check out yours. 😃

  7. Margaret

    I found The Dressmaker started off pretty good, then ended very strange….

    So many great books in this list and some new ones in there for me that I will have to pick up in the coming weeks. Thank you for posting these up.
    The best book I read so far this year has been The Midnight Shrink from Edward Dreyfus (
    A fantastic psychological thriller/crime fiction from an author with years of experience as a practicing psychologist.
    He brings a lot of themes from his work into the writing and it really adds a level of authenticity that makes his novels that much more enjoyable. A must-read for fans of the genre.

    1. Gaye

      Thanks for this recommendation Gary. I love psychological thrillers, so will definitely read this one!
