Globe & Mail fiction bestseller list, week of Oct 16, 2021
- Current bestseller: Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr
Our substitute: Bleeding Light by Rob Benvie
Both books follow multiple characters across space and time and are beautiful, redemptive novels.
- Current bestseller: The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell
Our substitute: Daniil and Vanya by Marie-Helene Larochelle, translated by Michelle Winters
Both books take psychological suspense to new heights.
- Current bestseller: The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles
Our substitute: The Union of Smokers by Paddy Scott
Both books feature young protagonists in multilayered tales of misadventure and self discovery and are populated by eclectic casts of characters.
- Current bestseller: It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
Our substitute: There Are Victories by Charles Yale Harrison
Both books feature too-good-to-be-true romances and should come with content warnings for difficult relationship subject matter.

Our substitute: 26 Knots by Bindu Suresh
Both books bring together characters from very different worlds, strip them of their old roles, and sets them off on a new path together.
