Screening Room

The limited series adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s Daisy Jones & the Six began streaming on March 3, and this week, the 2020 trade paperback edition is the #4 book in the country. The tie-in edition sold about 5,000 print copies this week, and 20K since its February release, but the older edition is the clear fan favorite.

Triple Crown

Hannah Whitten debuted in 2021 with For the Wolf, first in a fairy tale–inspired duology that concluded with 2022’s For the Throne. Each received a starred review from PW and landed on our trade paperback list in its first week; the two have sold a combined 140K print units. Her new book, The Foxglove King, is her first hardcover release and debuts at #18 on that list. It’s a “stunning fantasy,” per our starred review, whose “fascinating magic system and ever-present danger keep the pages flying.”

In Clubland

The March Good Morning America pick, Pineapple Street by Knopf v-p and executive editor Jenny Jackson, debuts at #5 on our hardcover nonfiction list. It’s a “clever if tepid debut” that “chronicles the struggles of three women born or married into an old-monied New York City family,” our review said. “Despite the dusty feeling, this has its moments,” and “Jackson shines in her incisive observations about the ravages of contemporary real estate developments.”


Sarah Ferguson
#13 Hardcover Fiction
“This superior blend of mystery and romance from the Duchess of York introduces Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott, the younger daughter of close friends of Queen Victoria, who chafes at being expected to adhere to her era’s rigid restrictions on women,” per our starred review. Ferguson “plausibly depicts the struggles of a capable woman who empowers herself to achieve her own potential.”

Emilia Hart
#19 Hardcover Fiction
“Hart explores in her triumphant debut sexual desire, violence, and personal autonomy in the lives of three strong-willed English women from the 17th century to the present,” according to our starred review, “showing how they confronted a patriarchal society to take control of their lives.”
