Historical Fiction Bestsellers: Week of Jan. 5

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

  11/22/63  Water for Elephants

War Horse  The Giver  Death Comes to Pemberley

Clockwork Prince  The Duke Is Mine  Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Rules for Virgins  Sarah’s Key  The Night Circus

Once Upon a Winter’s Eve  My Ruthless Prince  Clockwork Angel

The Land of Painted Caves  The Paris Wife: A Novel 

These are the books I consider to fall under the large umbrella of the historical fiction genre. Seventeen books out of 150. That's four more than last week, but still down from the impressive genre presence of twenty in the top 150 twelve weeks ago. Amy Tan came roaring back onto the list and Lois Lowry's classic, The Giver, makes a surprise, out-of-the-blue appearance at no. 23.

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!
