TOP 10 CHINESE BOOKS

Yi Shu just keeps on writing, and her readers also keep on reading. The popular and prolific Hong Kong author's novels and prose occupied half of the 2018 top ten Hong Kong bestsellers. Bolstered by the buzz of his hit TV show, TVB actor and action choreographer-turned-celebrity chef Steve Lee claimed the third and fourth spots with his cookbooks. For Taiwan, the latest book by famous TV host Kevin Tsai came in first. Books by Chang Man Chuan, Jeff Chang and Peter Su were also well-received.
