We cover this week's new best-sellers

Fiction
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, Diana Gabaldon
It’s unsurprising that the long-anticipated eighth volume of Gabaldon’s Outlander series is No. 1 on the fiction list, but it may have shocked some that it outsold Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices, the No. 1 nonfiction book.

The Rise & Fall of Great Powers, Tom Rachman
Rachman’s second novel hasn’t had the splashy rollout of his best-selling debut, The Imperfectionists, but this complex coming- of-age story still made the list at No. 15.

Nonfiction
Hard Choices, Hillary Rodham Clinton
The likely presidential candidate sold more than 100,000 copies of Hard Choices in its first week, whereas her first memoir, Living History, debuted to 600,000 copies in 2003. That’s a tricky comparison because the figure for History didn’t include digital sales. Still, the numbers are soft enough that Clinton’s detractors are calling it a ”bomb.”
