  1. Very interesting. The paranormal genre is still stronger than the dystopian genre? I expect that to change in the next couple of years.

  2. Interesting...

    I love looking at statistics and pie charts. This is great!

  3. Now I know why I can't find many YA thrillers and suspenses to read. :(

    Cool about contemporary, though, since that's what I write.

  4. So interesting. Thanks for sharing the link. I had no idea contemporary was so popular.

  5. Nice to see contemporary make such a strong showing. Fun graph. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Glad to see contemporary selling, seeing as that's what I write. Although it always seems to be the dystopians and paranormals that get the mega-deals.

    thanks for this!
