hachetteHachette Book Group’s net revenues were up 5.6 percent in the first half of 2014, as  compared to the first six months of 2013.

The company attributed the growth to the integration of Hyperion, along with strong titles including The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling, The Goldfinch by Donna Tarrt and James Patterson’s Unlucky 13.

“It is gratifying to have first half sales that exceed last year’s, especially in light of recent market challenges,” stated Michael Pietsch CEO of HBG.

The publisher counted 108 titles on The New York Times’ bestseller list during the six month period, as well as 43 titles on The New York Times’ eBook bestseller list.
