By Maryann Yin 

Twilight 10th Anniversary (GalleyCat)We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending Oct. 11, 2015–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #1 in Children’s Fiction Series) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Illustrated Edition written by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay: “Harry’s room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in eleven years. But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry–and anyone who reads about him—will find unforgettable.” (October 2015)

(Debuted at #8 in Children’s Fiction Series) Twilight Tenth Anniversary Edition by Stephenie Meyer: “This new edition pairs the classic love story with Stephenie Meyer’s bold and surprising reimagining of the complete novel with the characters’ genders reversed. In Life and Death, readers will be thrilled to experience this iconic tale told through the eyes of a human teenage boy in love with a female vampire.” (October 2015)

(Debuted at #11 in Hardcover Fiction) A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin: “Taking place nearly a century before the events of A Game of Thrones, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms compiles the first three official prequel novellas to George R. R. Martin’s ongoing masterwork, A Song of Ice and Fire. These never-before-collected adventures recount an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living consciousness.” (October 2015)
