Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Rick Riordan - 10This means that for every 10 copies of Percy Jackson and the Olympians that sold, 4.3 copies of Eclipse sold.
Dead and Gone, Charlaine Harris - 6.6
New Moon, Stephenie Meyer - 4.8
Twilight, Stephenie Meyer - 4.5
Eclipse, Stephenie Meyer - 4.3
What I’m wondering is what happened recently to send Riordan’s series to the top? Meyer’s series has been hogging the top spots forever. So, what happened?
Could it be the recent news about the upcoming Percy Jackson movie? The appearances on TV by actors? Is it that summer is coming up and parents are buying books for their tweens and they want something that not only entertains but also teaches? Did Meyer’s three highly popular books cancel each other out in top sales?
I’ve read both Meyer’s and Riordan’s books and like them, so I’m not choosing sides. Just wondering.
What do you think?
