Top Ten Fiction Charts w/e 15th June 2016

By June 16, 2016 New Releases

Top Ten Fiction Charts

Which books are selling at the moment? What is the hot title this week? These are the things we as bibliophiles need to know, are we keeping up with reader trends? Have we missed a release that is about to become the next Harry Potter? The next Game of Thrones? The next (gulp) Fifty Shades? Surely somewhere collects and collates sales information doesn’t it?
Well yes there is, but it is country specific and it can be difficult to find, but find it we did and here we are to share it with you.

We have decided to do a weekly top ten of the best selling novels from the UK and USA as these are charts we can access and you will be able to see what is selling, where the UK and the US differ, and of course where we are the same. Not forgetting of course, adding a title or two to your TBR lists.
