This is a list of bestselling novels in the United States in the 2010s (decade), as determined by Publishers Weekly. The list features the most popular novels of each year from 2010 through 2012.

After 2012 Publisher's Weekly used the lists from Nielsen Book Scan for print, supplemented by the lists for Kindle and print.[1]

The standards set for inclusion in the lists – which, for example, led to the exclusion of the novels in the Harry Potter series from the lists for the 1990s and 2000s – are currently unknown.
