2018 has been a whirlwind - both in the political world and in the literature arena. So far - the best sellers of 2018 are quite varied. A focus on Trump’s presidency - a children’s book with a deeper meaning - and a book by Jordan Peterson that highlights how we’re hooked on instant gratification. Check out the list below to see the most popular books on Amazon so far this year.

1. Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

Michael Wolff

“What makes Fire and Fury important is that it is not just about Trump, but a product of the same culture that produced Trump: It is ‘reality’ journalism, in the same way that Trump is a ‘reality’ character.” ―The Atlantic

2. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo

Jill Twiss, ‎EG (Gerald Kelley) Keller

“This cute, funny, and inclusive picture book has a positive message about celebrating who you are and loving whom you want.” - Common Sense Media

3. 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

Jordan B. Peterson

“Like the best intellectual polymaths, Peterson invites his readers to embark on their own intellectual, spiritual and ideological journeys into the many topics and disciplines he touches on. It’s a counter-intuitive strategy for a population hooked on the instant gratification of ideological conformity and social media ‘likes,’ but if Peterson is right, you have nothing to lose but your own misery.” —Toronto Star

4. A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet)

Madeleine L’Engle

“A coming of age fantasy story that sympathizes with typical teen girl awkwardness and insecurity, highlighting courage, resourcefulness and the importance of famiyl ties as key to overcoming them.” ―Carol Platt Liebau, author, in the New York Post

5. Dog Man and Cat Kid: From the Creator of Captain Underpants (Dog Man #4)

Dav Pilkey

“Pilkey… has again fired an arrow of joy straight at the fevered childhood psyche of millions of readers. An utter, unfettered delight.” – Booklist, starred review
