We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending July 08, 2012–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at No. 6 in Paperback Fiction) The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: “The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.”
(Debuted at #10 in Hardcover Fiction) Gold by Chris Cleave: “Kate and Zoe met at nineteen when they both made the cut for the national training program in track cycling—a sport that demands intense focus, blinding exertion, and unwavering commitment. They are built to exploit the barest physical and psychological edge over equally skilled rivals, all of whom are fighting for the last one tenth of a second that separates triumph from despair.” (July 2012)
(Debuted at #14 in Children’s Interest) Looking for Alaska by John Green: “Miles “Pudge” Halter is abandoning his safe-okay, boring-life. Fascinated by the last words of famous people, Pudge leaves for boarding school to seek what a dying Rabelais called the ‘Great Perhaps.’” (March 2005)
