YesAsia 2021 Bestsellers - Chinese Books

Written by YumCha! Editorial Team Tell a Friend

The below rankings are based on sales of Chinese books (excluding horoscope books) on from January 1 to December 31, 2021.


Though the publishing industry has been affected by the pandemic since 2020, that has not hindered the sales of popular Hong Kong author Yi Shu, whose novels and essays occupy seven spots on the Hong Kong books chart. BL novelist Mo Xiang Tong Xiu kept the #1 spot on the strength of Mo Dao Zu Shi and other period fantasy novel series. Cookbooks and books about Hong Kong nostalgia also made the list. Chua Lam and Ni Kuang continued to rank among the top-selling writers, and Japanese authors Murakami Haruki and Higashino Keigo appeared in the top ten thanks to Chinese translations of their popular novels.

Books from the HIStory series, Addicted and Your Name Engraved Herein claimed the rest of the spots on the film/TV books chart.
