Who Made the List?

It is expected to see Colleen Hoover topping the charts and seeing her on the list multiple times. This summer has been hers and that is still true. She landed books from three different publishers which goes to show you just how popular she is. 

Ashley Flowers entered the top five with her novel All Good People Here. This is her debut novel and when she isn’t writing, Flowers hosts the number one true crime podcast Crime Junkie. That platform helped her a lot in cracking the top five. 

I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jeannette McCurdy just missed the top five with the number six spot. That book has been in the news a lot for the revelations and stuff the child actresses have to go through. 

Different Types of Books

Another new book/manga that made the list is Jujutsu Kaisen, Vol. 17 by Gege Akutami at number at number 12. Seeing a manga make it this high on the list is a good sign. And yes, manga does count as reading a book.

Lastly, I had to look up Spelljammer by Wizards RPG Team and was surprised to find out that it was Dungeons and Dragons campaign. What amazes me is that not only were they able to be categorized as a “book” but that they made it to the number 13 spot.
