Chelsea Handler, Lauren Oliver, & Brandon Sanderson Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

Panic_HC_JKT_des4.inddWe’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending March 09, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #3 in Hardcover Fiction) Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson: “Six years ago, the Assassin in White, a hireling of the inscrutable Parshendi, assassinated the Alethi king on the very night a treaty between men and Parshendi was being celebrated. So began the Vengeance Pact among the highprinces of Alethkar and the War of Reckoning against the Parshendi. ” (March 2014)

(Debuted at #4 in Hardcover Nonfiction) Uganda Be Kidding Me by Chelsea Handler: “On safari in Africa, it’s anyone’s guess as to what’s more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she’s fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she’s always game for the next misadventure.” (March 2014)

(Debuted at #14 in Children’s Interest) Panic by Lauren Oliver: “For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.” (March 2014)
