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? Here at For Reading Addicts we heard your call and we answered it.

Here is our second 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.
Last week’s chart is here if you fancy seeing what was hot a week ago.
