Always books. Never boring.

It’s time once again to take a peek at the past week in bestselling books. There are some newcomers to the list, as well as a backlist title making its way back to the top, thanks to the film adaptation hitting theaters.

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 James McBride’s The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store, The Fraud by Zadie Smith, and Opinions by Roxane Gay.
