Bestseller Read-Alikes for the week of March 12th

Can’t wait to get your hands on the latest best-seller, but the hold list is too long? To tide you over, every week we’ll offer similar titles and authors to the week’s fiction and nonfiction best sellers.


This week's #1 fiction bestseller is again Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult (click here for read-alikes from her book last week). Number 2 on the list is Victims: An Alex Delaware Novel by Jonathan Kellerman. Victims is the 27th installation of Kellerman's award-winning Alex Delaware mystery series and it begins when LAPD detective Milo Sturgis is called to a particularly gruesome crime scene. Det. Sturgis quickly calls on his friend psychologist Alex Delaware, to assist in the case. As more seemingly unrelated victims turn up bearing the killer's calling card, Sturgis and Delaware come under increasing pressure to end the bloody spree.

Other authors with similar writing styles to Kellerman are:

Tess Gerritsen - Author of the best-selling Rizzoli and Isles series, Gerritsen uses her knowledge as a physician to write detail-rich, fast-paced mysteries. Her plots often follow contemporary medical issues, as well as questions of medical ethics. Whether possessing the medical or the investigative expertise, Gerritsen's heroines must work their way through medical clues and track the villains, all while facing life-or-death situations. Try The Surgeon, the first in the series.

Stephen Walsh White- Boulder, Colorado, psychologist Alan Gregory also employs psychology and investigative techniques to help solve crimes in Stephen Walsh White's popular series. Cold Case features an old but unsolved case of the murder of two young girls. An intricately twisted plot, details of psychology and criminal motivation, as well as step-by-step investigation make this a good choice for Kellerman's fans.

Number 2 on the the list this week is Blood Sugar Solution: The Ultrahealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! by Mark Hyman. Dr. Hyman explains that he has determined to be the solution to losing weight and preventing diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer - balanced insulin levels. With advice on diet, green living, supplements and medication, exercise, and personalizing the plan for optimal results, the book also teaches readers how to maintain lifelong health.

Books similar to Blood Sugar Solution include:

Prevention's The Sugar Solution with Ann Fittante - Drawing on the very latest medical science, The Sugar Solution helps readers determine whether they're at risk for blood sugar problems and shows them how to rein in their blood sugar levels without drugs or injections. The 30-day lifestyle makeover guides readers every step of the way, with complete daily menus, exercise strategies, and stress-reduction techniques.

Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It by Gary Taubes - Taubes examines the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change. He reveals what he calls the "bad" nutritional science of the last century—especially the “calories-in, calories-out” model of why we get fat—and the good science that has been ignored. Concluding with an easy-to-follow diet, this book is one key to understanding an international epidemic and a guide to improving our own health.
