Historical Fiction Bestsellers: Week of Dec. 15

The following titles are shown in order of appearance from
USA Today's Top 150:

  11/22/63  Clockwork Prince

Death Comes to Pemberley  Water for Elephants  War Horse

The Invention of Hugo Cabret  The Scottish Prisoner  The Land of Painted Caves

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children  Sarah’s Key  The Night Circus

Mail-Order Christmas Brides  Assault Of The Mountain Man

These are the books I consider to fall under the large umbrella of the historical fiction genre. Fourteen books out of 150. That's one more than last week, but still down from the impressive genre presence of twenty in the top 150 nine weeks ago. YA author Cassandra Clare comes roaring back onto the list with the highly anticipated second book in her Infernal Instruments series, steampunk fantasy set in Victorian London, and Jane Austen spin-offs continue to be popular.

As always, write for yourself, but it never hurts to keep an eye on what's selling in today's market, and to take a look at what these authors are doing right!
