Books that have been on the New York Times' bestseller list include "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins, "Acheron" by Sherrilyn Kenyon, "The Collector" by Nora Roberts and "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" by Stephen King. The New York Times' bestseller list has been around for decades, and thousands of books have made its highly sought-after rankings.
"The Girl on the Train" is a psychological thriller and follows a young woman on her daily commute on the train. She views the same couple eating breakfast every morning and starts to take an interest in their daily activities. When things change, she reports it to the police in a very Hitchcock like twist. Nora Roberts is no stranger to the New York Times' best seller list. "The Collector" is just one of 12 that she has had under her name. That number does not include the books that she has published under the pen name of J.D Robb, which have made the list numerous times as well. Stephen King is another name that appears regularly on the New York Times' bestsellers list. "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" follows a young girl lost in the woods with only her portable radio to keep her company and the thing that might be hunting her as she goes.
