Vampires continue to rule the Amazon top 5 fantasy bestseller list, with Flirt making its first appearance this week. Stephanie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn holds strong in the number two spot, and Charlaine Harris continues a strong showing in 2010 with two novels in the top 5 this week: Dead in the Family and Dead and Gone.
- Wit’ch Fire by James Clemens
- Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
- Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
- Flirt by Laurell K. Hamilton
- Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris
It is difficult for me to stomach Amazon’s classification of ‘Fantasy’, especially when it comes to this Top 5 Seller list. These are all (with the exception of Clemens’s book, which I am unfamiliar with) better classified as Urban Fantasy, and should not be compared or live in the same category as the Epic Fantasy/Tolkien-derived genre.
