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 Leverage in Death by J. D. Robb, the 47th instalment in the In Death Series.
A new edition to the list this week – Revenge by James Patterson – has climbed to number 2. A thrilling book about a former SAS soldier entangled in a gripping tale of murder, betrayal and revenge. An absolute must-read.
Special mention must be made to Number 3 and 4, both Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. Each is a remarkably different novel, except for the fact that they hold special places in our heart.
At number 5 we have Scrublands by Chris Hammer, one of the most powerful, compelling and original crime novels ever written.
At number 6 we have Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan – an insider’s look at the Asian jetset, a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money and between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese, and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love and gloriously, crazily rich.
At number 7 we have The Nowhere Child by debut Australian author Christian White – a combustible tale of trauma, cult, conspiracy and memory.
At number 8 we have Sisters and Brothers, a poignant novel of heartbreak, adoption and a father’s love by beloved bestselling Australian author, Fiona Palmer.
At number 9 we have Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton – a story of brotherhood, true love and the most unlikely of friendships.
A chilling tale of love gone horribly wrong…The Sunday Girl by Pip Drysdale lands at number 10 this week.
