This week’s bestsellers include a lot of familiar names. We have two celebrity memoirs: Britney Spears’s new memoir, which is still firmly holding onto the number one spot across all bestseller lists, and Matthew Perry’s memoir, which returned to the bestseller lists after he passed away. There are also several long-running series, including #30 in the Stephanie Plum series and #18 of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. We’ll have to wait and see how the gift-giving season will shift this list in the weeks to come!
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.
This list continues to have a lack of diversity on many levels, including being disproportionately by white authors. Some Indie Bestsellers you should know about are Let Us Descend by Jesmyn Ward, The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride, and Never Whistle at Night: An Indigenous Dark Fiction Anthology edited by Shane Hawk and Theodore C. Van Alst Jr.
