Ever wonder what library users worldwide are searching for in catalogs just like yours? At NoveList, we've got the data.

This month, we have three newcomers on this list: Welcome Ann Patchett, Lisa Jewell, and James McBride! Meanwhile, Colleen Hoover’s 2016 and 2018 titles are still holding on to the last two spots on the list.

Here are August's top ten titles searched in library catalogs that include NoveList Select: 

  1. Tom Lake by Ann Patchett
  2. Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
  3. None of This Is True by Lisa Jewell
  4. The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride
  5. Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
