9 Bestsellers You Didn't Know You Would Like [SHOWING SLIDE 4 OF 9]

Because it’s sold so many copies, a bestselling book appeals to many readers. But not all. Maybe you don’t want to read a book about a man who “lacked a striking personality, or any qualities that made him stand out,” as is the case with Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage or maybe the hit movie If I Stay seems overly sentimental to you (the book doesn’t: in a starred review, we wrote that “Forman excels at inserting tiny but powerful details throughout”). Take a chance on the bestselling books in this week’s list; each will reward you for trying it out.
