The First Quarter numbers are in, and so far the bestselling books of 2013 are mostly carryovers from the 2012 list — E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey juggernaut and Gillian Flynn’s soon-to-be-adapted-into-a-movie Gone Girl — as well as classic Dr. Seuss titles.
Christian and Young adult titles help round out the top 10 Nielsen’s list, which makes Christian publisher Zondervan’s recent announcement of a new YA imprint aimed at mainstream readers all the more interesting to track. Specifically dominating the Kindle list are books that inspired films including James Patterson’s Alex Cross, Run and Matthew Quick’s Silver Linings Playbook.
Though David O. Russell lost the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay to Argo‘s Chris Terrio, the Silver Linings Playbook film earned actress Jennifer Lawrence her first Academy Award for Best Actress. It will be exciting to see which yet-to-be-released books can rise past these stalwarts for a spot on the list by the end of the year.
