Fantasy Blogosphere: November 8, 2010

The embargo on Towers of Midnight reviews has expired, and the reviews are pouring in. In addition to the onslaught of ToM reviews, interviews with Brandon Sanderson are popping up like hotcakes. I never really got on the Wheel of Time bandwagon after reading the first book in the series, but I am about 10% through The Way of Kings, so expect a review of Sanderson’s solo work sometime soon. Also check out the interview with Felicia Day, good stuff.

Charlaine Harris bumps her share of the top 5 back up to 40% with both Dead in the Family and Dead and Gone making the cut, and Breaking Dawn rounds out the top 5 for the week.

Amazon’s Top 5 Fantasy Bestsellers, September 5, 2010

It only lasted a week, but boy was it sweet. Although Tolkien and Brooks drop off the Amazon top 5 list this week, we get another fantastic offering: Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings is released, and fills 2 of the top 5 slots with both the hardcover and Kindle editions, giving Sanderson 60% majority holdings of the top 5. Sweet.

I should mention that I’ll be making the distinction between Kindle, hardcover, and any other versions going forward, since they are separate items and should be accounted for as such. And there’s no better way to kick it off than with a double dose of Sanderson goodness.

  1. Towers of Midnight (Hardcover) by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
  2. The Way of Kings (Kindle) by Brandon Sanderson
  3. Dead in the Family (Kindle) by Charlaine Harris
  4. Breaking Dawn (Kindle) by Stephanie Meyer
  5. The Way of Kings (Hardcover) by Brandon Sanderson
