Publisher’s Weekly is reporting that Veronixa Roth’s Allegiant, the final book in the Divergent trilogy, sold 455, 000 book on the day that it was released!
Allegiant did exceptionally well on pre-sale orders and even beat out Suzanne Collins’ Mockingjay.
In what seemd to be largest ever first day sale figure for HarperCollins, Veronica Roth’s YA novel Allegiant sold 455,000 copies globally across all formats on its publication day, October 22. The book had an announced two-million-copy first printing.
Anticipation mounted in the month leading to the publication of the final installment in Roth’s Divergent trilogy. Preorders set house records, and bookstores across the country hosted midnight publication parties to celebrate the book’s release. Despite a handful of readers who, due to a shipping error at Indigo Books in Canada, received copies of the book three weeks early, online spoilers were kept to a minimum until the pub date.
Huge congrats to you Veronica Roth!
