Amazon’s Top 5 Fantasy Bestsellers, August 1, 2009

The Time Traveler’s Wife catapults into first from fifth last week.  Robin Hobb’s Assassin’s Apprentice stays strong in the number two slot, and the rest of the top five are the same batch, just rearranged slightly.

  1. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
  2. Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
  3. Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga, Book 4) by Stephenie Meyer
  4. Sookie Stackhouse, Books 1-7 by Charlaine Harris
  5. His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

Its interesting that Margaret Lindholm’s first novel published under the pen name Robin Hobb, from 1995, is maintaining such a strong showing in Amazon’s top five.  No doubt caused by popularity of recent books, readers are feeling compelled to go back to the start of the 9 books preceding the forthcoming The Dragon Keeper.  I chose to start with the middle trilogy, since I’ve heard its the strongest of the three trilogies.  Have you read any other books by Robin Hobb?  Leave a comment, it doesn’t require signing up.
