These are the top ten bestselling books of 2018

How many did you read?

If one of your resolutions for the new year is to read more, then we've got the perfect way to help you choose the first book(s) you can dig into in January.


The bestsellers for 2018 are quite eclectic, and there are some surprises, maybe because the books in particular aren't aimed at this writer's demograph, but David Walliams appears NINE more times in the top 100 bestsellers of the year.

Additionally, thriller writer Lee Child pops up again several times outside of the top ten, and it appears that the Irish writer with the highest position is Marian Keyes, as her novel The Break came in at No.13.
