Jojo Moyes dominates 2016 end-of-year bestseller charts in Germany

Jan 2, 2017

Following the huge success of her books in the past years, Jojo Moyes has once more been confirmed as one of the most loved writers by the German public. As the 2016 bestseller charts were published, the author’s books appeared amongst the top three titles in all fiction lists. The global bestseller Me Before You was leading the yearly paperback bestselling list, while The Ship of Brides topped the quality paperback list, and After You was the third most popular hardback title.

In 2013 Jojo had been voted Author of the Year by Buchmarkt and Me Before You had won Book of the Year. Many of her titles, including The One Plus One, The Last Letter from Your Lover, and The Girl You Left Behind, continued to appear on top of the bestseller charts since. In 2015 After You was voted Best Book in the LovelyBooks Readers’ Choice Award and in 2016 the screen adaptation of Me Before You was a box office success in the country.
