Weekly Bestsellers, 21 May


No debuts this week. Two of last week’s debuts, Charlaine Harris’ Deadlocked and Veronica Roth’s Insurgent, appear on the LA Times list this week, belatedly as usual. Harris’ slips a bit, but still ranks #2 on the NY Times list. Roth’s book maintains its #1 position on the NY Times children’s chapter book list, and ranks #2 on the children’s list at Publishers Weekly.
