Always books. Never boring.

After a long stretch of the same titles over and over again, we’re starting to see a little bit of a shake up on the bestseller lists! This week, we’ve got newcomers in Wildfire by Hannah Grace, the romance sequel to the very popular Icebreaker; new titles from three authors well acquainted with the bestseller list: Michael Lewis, John Sandford, and Rick Riordan; and a celebrity memoir from beloved actor Patrick Stewart.

Unfortunately, despite the new titles, 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 Out There Screaming: An Anthology of New Black Horror edited by Jordan Peele and Never Whistle at Night: An Indigenous Dark Fiction Anthology edited by Shane Hawk and Theodore C. Van Alst Jr.

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.
