The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
A quarter century after publication, the modern classic — out in a new anniversary edition — still resonates at No. 8. Coelho’s next novel, Adultery, comes out on Aug. 19.
Burial Rites, Hannah Kent
This dark literary debut (No. 13) by Australian author Kent delves into the mind of a young woman convicted of murder in 19th-century Iceland.
Beautiful Day, Elin Hilderbrand
Nantucket, blue bloods, and a wedding! Those are the ingredients for a Hilderbrand novel — and in anticipation of summer, beachgoers have made her latest sunny page-turner No. 14.
The White Princess, Philippa Gregory
The author of The Other Boleyn Girl continues her Cousins’ War series, which began with The White Queen. (That 2009 book was adapted into a 10-part TV series on Starz.) Gregory’s latest installment, which debuted at No. 15, tells the story of Elizabeth of York, who married Henry VII and became the mother of Henry VIII.
