Bestsellers this week
Jane Harper’s debut crime novel The Dry (Macmillan) has topped this week’s highest new entries and entered the top 10 bestsellers chart in seventh spot. Harper previously won the 2015 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for her unpublished manuscript of The Dry, which was then acquired by Pan Macmillan in a three-book deal and optioned for film by actress Reese Witherspoon’s production company. The film tie-in edition of Me Before You (Jojo Moyes, Penguin) spends its second week at the top of the overall bestsellers chart, with the title so popular that the B-format paperback edition has also made the top 10 in eighth spot. Both editions of Moyes’ 2012 book also made this week’s fastest movers chart, where they sit behind Liz Pichon’s latest instalment of the ‘Tom Gates’ series, Super Good Skills (Almost) (Scholastic)—Books+Publishing (source: Nielsen BookScan, week ending 4 June 2016).
