US Bestsellers: May 2012

No comments

Once again the Fifty Shades trilogy dominates the top ten. All the reviews I've read have been very critical of the quality of the books, and I'm guessing that their success is based mainly on hype (for a fuller rant see my comments on the UK Bestsellers list). For fans of the Obamas there's a couple of books creeping into the top ten, with Michelle seeming to go from strength to strength. There's also the standard appearances from The Hunger Games trilogy and the Game of Thrones series, with Cheryl Najafi's debut on throwing truly remarkable parties at least offering a little variety.
