Look at the Most Popular Books March 2017 list and you’ll see it doesn’t take a blockbuster movie to boost a book’s popularity.
“Before I Fall” is another book benefiting from a movie release. The book debuts at number three on the Most Popular Books list. Its movie version opened March 3.
As TV has become increasingly popular, the medium is also pushing books. For example, “Big Little Lies” jumps eight spots this month after debuting on the February Most Popular Books list. The book-turned-miniseries ran on HBO from Feb. 19-April 2.
Speaking of books-on-TV, “Thirteen Reasons Why” appears on the most-searched for books list for the first time. The book is now a Netflix series which was released on March 31.
The third and final debut on the most popular books list is “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” An updated version of the book was released on March 14. Plus, the book’s movie version was released on DVD and streaming last month.
The big drops on the Most Popular Books March 2017 list come from “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “The Girl on the Train.” The latter dropped eight spots on the list, its second consecutive eight-spot drop. Will the book find a way to stay on the Most Popular Books list? We’ll find out next month.
