'Bridgerton,' 'The Queen’s Gambit' and More See Spike in Book Sales

Thanks to Netflix’s recent series adaptations.

If you don’t already know, Netflix‘s latest hit TV shows like Bridgerton, The Queen’s Gambit, Lupin and Firefly Lane are all based on novels of the same names. According to the streaming giant, its recent series adaptations of the four titles have put the original literary works on this month’s The New York Times Best Sellers list.

Accumulating half of the top 10 spots, five of Julia Quinn‘s Bridgerton novels earned their place on the list, with The Duke and I taking first place for four weeks straight. Three weeks after the premiere of The Queen’s Gambit, Walter Tevis’ books appeared on the list for the first time since its release in 1983. Maurice Leblanc’s Lupin, which was published in 1907, made it to the top five bestsellers on Amazon and Fnac 10 days after its debut on the platform. As for Kristin Hannah’s Firefly Lane, the author’s novel landed a spot in the publication’s list a month prior to the series’ premiere date.

Other adaptations are set to release on Netflix, one of which might become the company’s next hit project. Scroll down below for some of its noteworthy upcoming titles:
