bestselling books of 2019 so far

After a couple of years of political books dominating the bestseller lists, an adult fiction title is the bestselling book in print in the first half of 2019. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens has been buoyed by support from Hollywood powerhouse and publishing kingmaker Reese Witherspoon, who picked it for her book club and whose production studio optioned it for film. The novel, which was published by Putnam last August, sold more than 907,000 copies in the first six months of the year, according to NPD BookScan, and more than 1.1 million copies since its release.
