Most sold Amazon books last week: The Maid moves up

After entering well the previous week, The Maid moved up into the Top 3 on the list of most sold Amazon books last week. Here’s the full list for the week of Jan. 16.

The most notable book on the list has to be The Maid by Nita Prose. It gained 12 places on the list, the most for the week, getting into the Top 3.

It wasn’t the only big mover, though. Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover gained eight places, just narrowly missing out on a Top 10 position. There’s still time next week.

4 new books on the list

Last week, we saw four new additions to the list of most sold Amazon books. Three of them are steamy romance books, and we usually see these books drop off the list fairly quickly.

The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland entered the highest out of the four new additions this week, entering in No. 9. Put Me in Detention by Meghan Quinn entered in 15th place and was the second-highest new addition.

The other steamy romance was Blindsided by Amy Daws, entering in 20th place. James Patterson and Mike Lupica joined forces to bring The Horsewoman, which entered in 17th place.

The biggest drop on the list goes to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. They all lost five places each.
