Dead Witch Walking, Dead in the Family and Breaking Dawn hold strong this week, confirming that this vampire in fantasy trend isn’t going away any time soon. And the two newcomers to Amazon’s top 5 fantasy bestseller list this week are…Battle of the Network Zombies, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth. At least when I scrolled down past the top 5, I was reassured that Jim Butcher’s latest novel as well as Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind are both still selling well, giving me some reassurance that not all hope is lost.

Another week of musical chairs, as all five books in the top 5 remain, but Dead Witch Walking trades places with Dead in the Family, and Black Magic Sanction trades off with The Time Traveler’s Wife. Breaking Dawn reaches fifteen weeks in the Amazon Top 5 Fantasy Bestseller list.
Breaking Dawn reaches fourteen weeks in the top 5, with Dead in the Family and The Time Traveler’s Wife both holding strong. Two new entries in the top 5 this week, both from the same author: Kim Harrison. She may be one to watch.
Is it just me, or are the books I’m reading or excited about reading not anywhere near the top 5? Jim Butcher, Robin Hobb, and Brandon Sanderson are all in the top 25, but the trends recently are overwhelmingly toward vampire and undead books. Show you who’s buying books right now.
