Weekly Bestsellers, 30 January 2017


Two titles debut this week, beginning with Veronica Roth’s Carve the Mark (HarperCollins), first in a new YA series, ranking #1 on YA lists at New York Times and Publishers Weekly; and Karen Marie Moning’s Feversong (Delacorte), the conclusion of her Fever series, ranking as high as #4 on the USA Today list.

Meanwhile, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-four, since ranking #6 at Amazon.com a week ago, has climbed to #1 and remains there, while other dystopian novels by Atwood, Bradbury, Huxley, Lewis, and Orwell have become increasingly prominent on all Amazon lists this past week.
