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 1 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 2 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 3 is A Spark of Light by Jodie Picoult – a powerful and provocative new novel about ordinary lives that intersect during a heart-stopping crisis.
At number 4 we have In a House of Lies by Ian Rankin. A missing private investigator is found, locked in a car hidden deep in the woods. Worse still – both for his family and the police – the body was in an area that had already been searched, ten years ago…
At number 5 this week we have The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton – a story of murder, mystery and thievery, of art, love and loss.
At number 6 we have Courtney’s War by Wilbur Smith – an epic story of courage, betrayal and undying love that takes the reader to the very heart of a world at war.
Lethal White by Robert Galbraith comes in at number 7 this week – a gripping mystery and a page-turning next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.
Special mention must be made to Number 8 and 10, both The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Each is a remarkably different novel, except for the fact that they hold special places in our heart.
At number 9 this week we have The Year of the Farmer by Rosalie Ham – a darkly satirical novel of a small country town battling the elements and one another, from the bestselling author of The Dressmaker.
