SFFH Books on General Bestseller Lists

The big debut this week is Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron (St. Martin's), 12th book in her "Dark-Hunter" series about immortal warriors protecting mankind from demons. It ranks #1 this week on the fiction hardcover lists at New York Times, Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly, and #7 on USA Today's combined list.

Added here this week, though it debuted on lists a week or two ago, is Brunonia Barry's The Lace Reader (Morrow), ranking this week among the top 10 fiction hardcovers at NYT, WP, and PW.

It's about mind-readers and fortune-tellers in modern-day Salem, Massachusetts, but the backstory is at least as good: a self-published novel that sold to a major publisher and became a bestseller. (Here's an NPR interview with the author.)

Meanwhile, Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn still ranks #1 on Amazon lists (though as YA it doesn't qualify for some of the print lists), while her adult novel The Host remains in the top 10 fiction hardcovers on three of those print lists.
