AMAZON TOP 10 BESTSELLERS: NOVEMBER 2014
Posted by Ognian Georgiev
Our first official Kindle Amazon monthly rankings for November 2014 became an epic battle for the first place. Who may imagine that the winning novel will be just one point ahead of the second and one more in front of the third?
1. Gray Mountain by John Grisham (2nd last month) 70 points
The master of legal thrillers climbed one position with very strong last week sales. Gray Mountain was in Top 3 ranks almost for entire month and was on the first place in the November’s last week. The late surge brought the novel to the winning spot. The readers feedback wasn’t the best one and even dropped 0,1 stars compared to the previous month.
2. The Burning Room by Michael Connely (debut) 69 points
The next part of Harry Bosch’s adventures was released on November 3. The publishers were highly criticized for the big kindle price of the novel – $15. This was the major reason for 1-stars reviews that dropped down the rating of the crime thriller. Little, Brown and Company corrected the value and now The Burning Room receives more and more positive feedback.
3. My Sister’s Grave by Robert Dugoni (1st last month) 68 points
Robert Dugoni’s great work was very close to take the first place for the second month in a row. The novel was leading the very strong field in the first two weeks, but a drop in the last few days put it down from the top spot by just a two points. If you want to know why the book is so well received – check out our interview with Robert Dugoni
4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (3rd last month) 66 points
Gillian Flynn’s best book so far is continuing to be one of the most wanted. The main reason is the great movie that probably will have some Academy Awards nominations. We wish to Gillian to be one of the candidates for Oscar in best adapted screenplay category.
5. His Secretary by Melanie Marchande (debut) 45 points
The novel was released on October 26. The New York Times Bestseller is leading on the Romance and Romantic comedy subcategory in Amazon. It’s far away in the general classification from Top 4, but was able to be the second part of the table leader. Currently the readers seem to be very satisfied by the book with av. 4.3 stars from 282 reviews in Amazon.
6. Captivated By You by Sylvia Day (debut) 44 points
The fourth book of Crossfire series was released on November 18. The novel missed points from the first week of the rankings and this is the reason to be in the second part of the table. Captivated By You gathered very fast 1550 reviews with av. 4.0 stars in Amazon.
7. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (debut) 43 points
The novel was released in May, but still gathers big attention. Anthony Doerr’s bestseller has 4300 reviews with very high average rating of 4,6 stars in Amazon. The historical fiction was very stable in sales during the entire month with a position around 8th and 12th place in all four weeks.
8. The Unimaginable by Dina Silver (debut) 42 points
Dina Silver was selected in the Kindle First Book program and received very nice initial push up to the ranks. The official release of the novel is today. The readers already loved the story, which received av. 4,3 stars from 380 reviews so far. You may learn more about the author and her new book in the interview for our blog.
9. The Escape by David Baldacci (debut) 36 points
The third part of John Puller series was released on November 18. The novel missed the first two weeks in our ranks, but was a top contender in the second half of the month. With just two weekly rankings in Top 20 David Baldacci finds a place in classification. The suspense thriller is one to watch for the next month.
10 Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty 27 points
The novel by Australian author was released in July, but is still very hot. If you ask yourself how important are the readers’ feedback for a long and stable top placing – here is the answer. Big Little Lies is with av. 4,6 stars from almost 3200 reviews. This is another great book by Liane Moriarty, who promised an interview for the readers of the blog.
