Tough love is a fight to the finish. In this poignant short memoir, Cheryl Strayed, the bestselling author of Wild and Tiny Beautiful Things, shares her story of finding humor and connection when her mother-in-law, Joan, is given weeks to live. As Cheryl and her husband help see Joan through her final days, Cheryl reckons with their complicated relationship, determined to connect with a woman who both showed her love and (sometimes hilariously) held her at a distance.

I’m going to let you in on a secret: this isn’t the bestselling books of this week. That’s pretty obvious, because this week has only just started, and I unfortunately can’t tell the future in book sales yet. (I’m confident that superpower is going to emerge any day now!) But it’s also not the bestselling books of last week, because these lists have a delay in procuring all their data. This is, in fact, a round up of the bestselling books of the week of December 25th, 2023.

With that in mind, it makes sense that there weren’t any big, breakout titles this time: the publishing and book-buying world was firmly in winter hibernation. The only new addition to this list is The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown, which was published in 2014, because the movie adaptation came out at the end of December.

To get these numbers, we look at the USA Today overall top 10; Publishers Weekly overall top 10; the New York Times top 10, both Combined Print & E-Book Fiction and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction lists; Amazon Charts top 10, both Fiction and Nonfiction; and Indie Bestsellers top 10, Fiction and Nonfiction, both Paperback and Hardcover. New additions to the list this week are bolded.

This list continues to have a lack of diversity on many levels, including being disproportionately by white authors. Some Indie Bestsellers you should know about are Babel by R. F. Kuang and The Song of the Cell by Siddhartha Mukherjee.
