Michelle Obama starts 2019 the way she ended 2018: with Becoming still at the top of the Apple Books bestseller list. At #2 is Josh Malerman’s Bird Box, seeing a significant bump from the Netflix adaptation, which made waves over the holiday and reintroduced Sandra Bullock to a new generation of viewers. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens returned to the top five at #5 as well, below books by Liane Moriarty and Jack Carr.
