Two titles in Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy, once again, held the top two spots on Apple's iBooks bestseller list—Divergent landed at #1 and Insurgent at #2, for the week ended March 3. The third book in the series, Allegiant, sat at #4, behind John Green's The Fault in Our Stars.
James Patterson's Private L.A. stayed firm at #5, followed by Concealed in Death from J.D. Robb (a pseudonym for Nora Roberts). Following the movie version's big Best Picture win at the Oscars on March 2, Twelve Years a Slave jumped from #9 to #6. With buzz around Angelina Jolie's film adaptation continuing to grow, Lara Hillenbrand's Unbroken climbed six spots to #10.
New to the list this week at #11 was Debbie Macomber's Friends—And then Some, originally published in 1986.
