21 Best Selling Novels of the 21st Century [Infographic]

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have written one of the best selling novels of the 21st century? Well, there’s still time…

A couple of weeks ago I asked: Is it really possible to write a best selling novel to order? To break down its constituent parts and use them as a kind of writing-a-blockbuster-by-numbers?

Also, is it possible to see a pattern with best sellers? To deduce what might be the next best seller in which genre?

Obviously literary agents and publishers ask themselves these questions all the time. As do some authors who analyze and plan methodically long before they write a word.

But apart from a few notable exceptions, it seems an almost impossible task.

So, I thought it would be illuminating to see just what are some of the best selling novels of the 21st century.

Maybe there is a pattern or at least a hint as to when and where the next best seller is coming from?

Maybe you’re writing it?
