I’ve heard alot of Democratic pundits say that when you vote for Hilary, you are getting a twofer. Certainly Bill Clinton’s popularity seems undiminished since his residency in the Oval office. His most recent book, Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World, debuts at number 1. Despite last week being a big release week, there were very few new authors/books on the list. It’s actually kind of depressing.
* * *
74 Seaside Avenue, Debbie Macomber (Mira), $7.99, No. 2 (Peak 1).
Eclipse, Stephenie Meyer (Little, Brown), $18.99, No. 7 (Peak 1)
Innocent in Death, J.D. Robb, (Berkley), $7.99, No. 12 (Peak 9). Paperback release of a hardcover.
Beyond Seduction, Stephanie Laurens (Avon), $7.99, No. 14 (Peak 8).
.New Moon, Stephenie Meyer (Little Brown for Young Readers), $17.99, No. 22 (Peak 10).
Twilight, Stephenie Meyer (Little, Brown), $8.99, No. 16 (Peak 7).
Darkfever, Karen Marie Moning (Dell), $6.99, No. 57 (Peak 46). I did buy this in ebook form but I haven’t read it yet. Oh, so many books, so little time.
Calder Storm, Janet Dailey (Zebra), $7.99, No. 58 (debut). Who still buys this woman?
Sorceress, Lisa Jackson, No. 64 (debut). This is very surprising and shows that there might not be much cross over between romantic suspense/suspense to paranormal romance. Lisa Jackson writes RS for Kensington and is a perennial top 10 bestseller for those books.
Play Dirty, Sandra Brown (Simon & Schuster), $26.95, No. 67 (Peak 8).
Almost Dead, Lisa Jackson (Zebra), $7.99, No. 72 (Peak 2).See! This would have been a number one had it not been for the Boy Wizard.
C.J.’s Fate, Kay Hooper (Bantam), $6.99, No. 76 (Peak 52). This is another of the Loveswept books that Bantam owns the rights to. I love that they are reissuing them, particularly in ebook format.
The Boleyn Inheritance, Philippa Gregory (Touchstone), $16.00, No. 86 (Peak 36). Trade paperback release of hardcover.
Heart Of Texas Vol. 2: Caroline’s Child\Dr. Texas, Debbie Macomber (Mira), $9.99, No. 87 (Peak 54). Reissue.
Love Letters From a Duke, Elizabeth Boyle (Avon), $6.99, No. 91 (Peak 66).
The Marriage Wager, Candace Camp (HQN), $6.99, No. 92 (Peak 64).
Dakota Born (Dakota Series #1), Debbie Macomber (MIRA), $7.99 No. 96 (Peak 10).
To Scotland, With Love, Karen Hawkins (Pocket), $6.99, No. 98 (Peak 41).
Coming Undone, Susan Andersen (HQN), $7.95, No. 102 (Peak 59). Sadly, I think I’ve outgrown Andersen.
Highlander Unmasked, Monica McCarty (Ballantine), $6.99, No. 107 (Peak 87). McCarty’s first book appeared last month and peaked at 92.
Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, Diana Gabaldon, No. 111 (Peak 68).
Primal Desires , Susan Sizemore (Pocket Star), $6.99, No. 115 (Peak 61).
The Dream Thief, Shana Abe (Bantam), $6.99, No. 117 (Peak 110). Paperback release of hardcover.
Die for Me, Karen Rose (Grand Central Publishing), $6.99, No. 119 (Peak 91). I think Karen Rose writes as good as Karen Robards and Sandra Brown for romantic suspense. People should be buying her more.
Dockside, Susan Wiggs (Mira) $7.99, No. 122 (Peak 14).
Out of the list:
Copycat, Erica Spindler (Mira), $7.99, No. 49 (debut). Mira is putting out a ton of suspense but I am not quite sure how much is romantic suspense and how much is just suspense.
Macgregor Brides, Nora Roberts (Silhouette Special Releases), $7.99, No. 73 (Peak 4). This is a reprint/reissue.
The Gathering (Immortals, Book 4), Jennifer Ashley (Leisure Books), $6.99, No. 109 (debut). This is the fourth in a connected series and the second appearance for Ashley on the list.
Wicked Magic, Cheyenne McCray (St. Martin’s Paperbacks), $6.99, No. 115 (debut).
Tangled Up In You, Rachel Gibson (Avon), $6.99, No. 141 (Peak 25).
Touch of Darkness, Christina Dodd (Signet), $7.99, No. 142 (Peak 17).
My Immortal Highlander, Hannah Howell, Lynsay Sands (Zebra), No. 148 (debut).
Devil May Cry, Sherrilyn Kenyon (St. Martin’s Press), $19.95, No.149 (Peak 8).
