Three best friends decide they’re finally done with their ex-husbands taking their work as wives and moms for granted. Carolyn Mackler marks her debut into adult fiction with a hilarious rollercoaster ride of revenge and redemption that is at once a send-up of modern marriage and a celebration of female friendship and love in all forms.

The Wife App is fresh, funny, empowering, and totally satisfying.”—Judy Blume

“The Wife App is one of the most entertaining novels I’ve read in a while. I couldn’t put this book down, and you won’t be able to, either.”—Meg Cabot

This week’s bestseller list looks a lot like last week’s, but we do have one new entry: The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store, the newest novel from acclaimed author James McBride, best known for his books The Color of Water, Deacon King Kong, and the National Book Award-winning novel The Good Lord Bird. The rest of the bestsellers this week may have shifted up and down — Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros is more popular than ever — but they’re all familiar titles.

To get these numbers, we look at the USA Today overall top 10; Publishers Weekly overall top 10; the New York Times top 10, both Combined Print & E-Book Fiction and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction lists; Amazon Charts top 10, both Fiction and Nonfiction; and Indie Bestsellers top 10, Fiction and Nonfiction, both Paperback and Hardcover. New additions to the list this week are bolded.

This list continues to have a lack of diversity on many levels, including being disproportionately by white authors. Some new releases that deserve more attention are Congratulations, the Best Is Over!: Essays by R. Eric Thomas and Kiss the Girl by Zoraida Córdova.
