Bestsellers this week

This week’s bestsellers includes a number of film tie-ins and film-related titles moving up the charts. Top of the overall bestsellers for the fourth straight week is the film tie-in edition of Me Before You (Jojo Moyes, Michael Joseph), while The BFG film tie-in (Roald Dahl, Puffin), has climbed the charts in the week of its release in Australian cinemas to land in fifth spot on the top 10 and top of the fastest movers. Though not the official film tie-in editions, other titles with forthcoming film adaptations in the charts this week include Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs, Quirk Books) which is fifth on the fastest movers chart, and The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins, Black Swan), which has surged back into the overall top three behind Jane Harper’s debut The Dry (Macmillan) in second spot. The latest instalment in the ‘Bourne’ series, Robert Ludlum’s the Bourne Enigma (Eric van Lustbader, Head of Zeus) is the top of the highest new entry chart this week, coinciding with a new ‘Jason Bourne’ film due out at the end of July. Elsewhere in the charts, the fastest movers sees a mix of the new and the familiar in literary fiction, with Annie Proulx’s new release Barkskins (Fourth Estate) in second spot, ahead of seemingly perpetual chart presence All the Light We Cannot See (Anthony Doerr, Fourth Estate) in third—Books+Publishing (source: Nielsen BookScan, week ending 25 June 2016).
