Posted in the Magazine ( · Irish Bestseller Lists ).

This week, we are thrilled that our own Sam Blake’s newest book, Keep Your Eyes on Me, (featured last week) has not only reached no. 6 in the Top 20, but no. 1 in Original Fiction! We’re over the moon!

In the rest of the week’s charts, it’s all about the food, with the top three books being cookbooks, as well as nine of the top twenty Non-Fiction (paperback and hardback). In third place, Eat Up, Raise Your Game by Daniel Davey has been bobbing around the charts since its release in September, just waiting for new year’s resolutions! This is followed by a great book for anyone having a go at Veganuary, or just looking to reduce their meat intake: No Fuss Vegan by Roz Purcell is our newest book in the Top 20 with over a thousand sales.

Finally, this week’s featured book is, of course, Pinch of Nom: Everyday Light, which is once more at the top of the charts with almost identical sales to last week; over in the UK, not only are the authors Kate Allinson and Kay Featherstone getting the title’s fourth no. 1, but their runaway success is being credited with helping to increase Pan Macmillan’s growth by 25%! That’s a huge success, and looks set to continue with the first book, Pinch of Nom, and the associated journal, Pinch of Nom: Food Planner also in the charts. Here’s the blurb:

100 delicious recipes – all under 400 calories – from the authors of Pinch of Nom, the fastest-selling cookbook of all time.

Great-tasting recipes. Hassle-free slimming.

Featuring proper breakfasts, light takes on family favourites, cheeky fakeaways and speedy midweek meals, Pinch of Nom Everyday Light is full of hearty, everyday recipes – nearly half of which are vegetarian. From Fish and Chips to Pizza Loaded Fries, Sloppy Dogs to Firecracker Prawns, and Hash Brown Breakfast Bake to Crying Tiger Beef, every recipe is under 400 calories including accompaniments, and has been tried and tested by twenty Pinch of Nom community members.

‘These tasty, healthy recipes are so easy and made with simple-to-find ingredients. We’re so proud of this food that the whole family can enjoy together. We hope you like making the dishes, but mostly we hope you love eating them!’ – Kate & Kay

And now the charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category:
