YesAsia 2023 Bestsellers - Chinese Books

Written by YumCha! Editorial Team Tell a Friend

The below rankings are based on sales of Chinese-language books (excluding horoscope books) on from January 1 to December 31, 2023.


Yi Shu continues to be the best-selling Chinese writer with three novels in the top ten. Collectible books by and about celebrities are popular, including books commemorating legendary Hong Kong bands Beyond and The Wynners, Priscilla Wong's travelogue and Jet Li's spiritual healing book.

With THE FIRST SLAM DUNK being a blockbuster hit across Asia in 2023, the anime film's behind-the-scenes book has also become a bestseller. Works by BL novelist Mo Xiang Tong Xiu continue to have an enthusiastic following both at home and abroad. Japan travel guides also sold well thanks to the post-pandemic travel trend.

Timothy's body-baring photobooks of male artists are popular as ever with customers – the Taiwan photographer's works grabbed half the spots on the photobooks chart. Malaysian actress Miko Wong and former AV actress Asuka Kirara are the only female representatives in the top ten.

BL dramas are still going strong. The photobook and novel for 2023's biggest Taiwan BL hit Kiseki: Dear to Me both sold well. With the exception of the Someday or One Day movie photobook, the rest of the top ten film/drama books consists of photobooks from other BL titles like WBL, My Tooth Your Love, Stay By My Side and the HIStory series.
