Amazon Hot New Releases top 100
Hey, here’s something you haven’t read before!
Well, 100 somethings…and okay, you might have read them in the last month, but you’ll remember if you did, right?😉
Amazon has all kinds of interesting bestseller lists (updated hourly), and here is the one for “Hot New Releases” (which appears to mean within the last month…although the Kindle First titles can get on this list before they are released):
Let’s take a look at some of the books on the list:
#1 is Personal: A Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child
4.0 stars out of 5, 634 customer reviews
No big surprise there…
#2, though, is The Moonlight Palace by Liz Rosenberg. Yep, a traditionally published book from Amazon beats everything except the Jack Reacher novel.
4.2 stars, 81 customer reviews
It should be in Kindle Unlimited once it is officially released on October 1st.
#3 and #4? Also Kindle First picks…will it get to the point where Amazon doesn’t need the tradpubs?
The highest rated KU (Kindle Unlimited) book is really up there…it is #7, Twice the Growl by Milly Taiden.
4.6 stars, 169 reviews. High-rated and a recent release…did you expect to be able to find those in KU?
Amazon has now made it easier to find books. When you do a search, you’ll often get a checkmark filter that allows you to limit it to KU. I used the Advanced Search in the Kindle store, but didn’t put in any parameters (which results in all the books).
Checking the KU box, I get 706,786 at time of writing…it’s really growing!
Here is that search:
Want to narrow it down…maybe find books about cats that are KU eligible, or a particular author?
You can start at
enter combinations of these parameters:
- Reader Age
- Pub. Date
and choose how you would like it sorted. Once you get your results, you can check the box to filter for KU eligible.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
