Always books. Never boring.

His best friend just came in a box. International bestselling author Dean Koontz is back with a breathtaking new kind of thriller. When Benny Catspaw loses his job, his reputation, his fiancée, and his favorite chair, he feels like someone is out to get him. Then he receives a giant crate with a seven-foot-tall so-called “Bad Weather Friend” named Spike who promises to “deal with” Benny’s enemies. Soon, Benny is plunged into a perilous high-speed adventure, the likes of which never would have crossed the mind of a decent guy like him. Read The Bad Weather Friend by Dean Koontz.

It looks like we’re finally through the winter hibernation season in publishing, because this week’s bestseller list has three new titles! We still have some steady sellers from previous weeks, like Sarah J. Maas’s Crescent City series, but the Fourth Wing series has slid off the USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists, ending its reign at the top of the lists.

All three additions this week are new releases from established authors: The Women by Kristin Hannah (best known for The Nightingale), Bride by Ali Hazelwood (best known for The Love Hypothesis), and The Teacher by Freida McFadden (best known for the The Housemaid).

To get these numbers, we look at the USA Today overall top 10; Publishers Weekly overall top 10; the New York Times top 10, both Combined Print & E-Book Fiction and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction lists; Amazon Charts top 10, both Fiction and Nonfiction; and Indie Bestsellers top 10, Fiction and Nonfiction, both Paperback and Hardcover. New additions to the list this week are bolded.

As always, this is a list with a lack of diversity on many levels, including being disproportionately by white authors. Some other bestsellers you should know about are Caste by Isabel Wilkerson (NYT Bestseller), Master Slave Husband Wife: An Epic Journey from Slavery to Freedom by Ilyon Woo (Indie Bestseller), and Waverider (Amulet #9) by Kazu Kibuishi (USA Today Bestseller).
