USA Today's Top 150 Bestselling Books as of 05.29.2011

Thursday, June 2, 2011: According to USA TODAY, the following list contains the top 25 best selling books (out of 150) - based on sales through Sunday, 05/29/2011.  For the complete list of 150 books for the week or just to check out more information - plus reviews, book news and a searchable archive of USA TODAY's Best-Selling Books list - visit their website.

YA Note of the week:  Finally something new to the list this week: The Warlock by Michael Scott, debuting at #13. Otherwise, we're looking at the same reads that have coveted the top 25 list for quite awhile now. 

After checking all 150 books for the week, I'm still surprised to NOT see Divergent by Veronica Roth making the list. What is being pitched as a futuristic 'Fight Club' for teens, this title is well worthy of the top 10, but maybe it's just taking a while to get out there? I just finished it (in 2 days) and posted my review below this blog post - and by all means, it's a definite must read...right up there with The Hunger Games for me!
