Weekly Bestsellers, 21 April


David Weber & Eric Flint’s Cauldron of Ghosts (Baen) debuts on two lists this week, ranking #12 on Publishers Weekly‘s fiction hardcover list, #19 on the same list at New York Times.

And Laini Taylor’s Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Little, Brown) debuts on two lists, at #13 on the PW Children’s Frontlist list, and a respectable #33 on the combined USA Today list. (NY Times ranks the series “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” #6 on its children’s series list, but doesn’t rank individual series titles on its other lists.)
