Revealed: These Are The Top 20 Bestselling Books Of 2018

The former First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” was the bestselling book in 2018, selling 3.4 million copies, pipping “Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering” by Joanna Gaines, which sold 1.3 million, according to the ​CEOWORLD magazine. Pretty impressive considering “Becoming” was only published this past November (its pub date was November 13).

While the former resident of the White House Michelle Obama broke records, the current President Donald Trump makes 2 notable appearances in the top 20 – Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” at no. 5 and Bob Woodward’s “Fear: Trump in the White House” at No. 7.

Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be by Rachel Hollis, Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid #13: Meltdown, and Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff took third, fourth, and fifth place, selling more than 1 million copies.

By contrast, Craig Smith sold over 973,000 copies of The Wonky Donkey, followed by Bob Woodward’s Fear: Trump in the White House (972,000 copies), Dog Man and Cat Kid: From the Creator of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey (716,000 copies), and Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life (712,000 copies).
