Weekly Bestsellers, 14 May


Charlaine Harris’ Deadlocked (Ace) debuts solidly in 1st place on three print lists, pushing Stephen King’s The Wind Through the Keyhole down a notch or two on the lists at New York Times, Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly.

Also debuting this week is Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Born in Silence (Grand Central), ranking as high as #13 on the PW list.

Other debuts include two YA titles, Veronica Roth’s Insurgent (HarperCollins) and Kristin Cashore’s Bitterblue (Dial), ranking #1 and #2 on this week’s NYT children’s chapter book list, #10 and #37 on the combined USA Today list.
