Stephen King, Mo Willems, & Rachel Renee Russell Debut on the Indie Bestseller List

DD-7We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending June 08, 2014–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #2 in Hardcover Fiction) Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King: “In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes.” (June 2014)

(Debuted at #3 in Children’s Series) Elephant & Piggie: My New Friend by Mo Willems: “Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can. Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to. Gerald and Piggie are best friends.” (June 2014)

(Debuted at #5 in Children’s Series) The Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Glam TV Star by Rachel Renee Russell: “A reality TV crew is following me and my friends as we record our hit song together, plus there are voice lessons, dance practice, and my little sister Brianna’s latest wacky hijinks (they NEVER end). I’m sure I’ve got this…but I hope all of this excitement won’t cause new problems for me and Brandon…eek!!” (June 2014)
