Bestsellers this week

The film tie-in of American Sniper (Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen & Jim DeFelice, HarperCollins) has stayed at the top of the bestsellers chart this week, with Family Food (Pete Evans, Plum) in second place, and Wild (Cheryl Strayed, Atlantic Books) moving up to third. Two of last week’s fastest movers, Still Alice (Lisa Genova, S&S) and Unbroken (Laura Hillenbrand, Fourth Estate), have climbed into the top 10, taking seventh and eighth place respectively. This week’s fastest movers is The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins, Doubleday), while the Fifty Shades Trilogy Boxed Set and the Fifty Shades of Grey film tie-in (both E L James, Arrow Books) are this week’s third and fourth fastest movers respectively, spurred by the film adaptation’s imminent release this week. Saint Odd (Dean Koontz, HarperCollins) is this week’s highest new entry, while Norman Doidge’s The Brain’s Way of Healing (Scribe), his follow-up to the bestselling The Brain That Changes Itself, has also entered the charts as the fourth highest new entry—Books+Publishing
