By Maryann Yin Comment

Replica Books (GalleyCat)We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending October 9, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #3 in Young Adult) Replica by Lauren Oliver: “Replica is a “flip book” that contains two narratives in one, and it is the first in a duology. Turn the book one way and read Lyra’s story; turn the book over and upside down and read Gemma’s story. The stories can be read separately, one after the other, or in alternating chapters. The two distinct parts of this astonishing novel combine to produce an unforgettable journey.” (October 2016)

(Debuted at #9 in Early & Middle Grade Readers) Some Writer!: The Story of E.B. White by Melissa Sweet: “In this stunning, first-ever fully-illustrated biography of legendary author E.B. White, Sibert medalist and Caldecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet uses White’s letters, photos, and mementos, as well as her original collaged art, to tell the true story of one of the most beloved authors of all time.” (October 2016)

(Debuted at #10 in Hardcover Nonfiction) My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “My Own Words offers Justice Ginsburg on wide-ranging topics, including gender equality, the workways of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution. Throughout her life Justice Ginsburg has been (and continues to be) a prolific writer and public speaker.” (October 2016)
