Historical Fiction Bestsellers: Week of April 19

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

The Help  The Shoemaker's Wife

When Passion Rules  The Lifeboat: A Novel  11/22/63

Highland Avenger  To Kill a Mockingbird  Prague Fatale

The Paris Wife: A Novel  Wild Montana Sky  The Great Gatsby

The Dovekeepers  Waltzing With the Wallflower


Fourteen out of 150--two more than last week. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter continues to ride its movie tie-in wave and two beloved classics continue to resonate with today's readers. Wild Montana Sky is a self-published title distributed via Barnes and Noble's Pubit! program, and one other self-pubbed title made this week's list from Amazon Digital Services. So yes, self-pubbed titles can be bestsellers!
