The beginning of this month has brought an outbreak of new books into the charts! This week, The Tattooist of Auschwitz (Heather Morris), The Librarian of Auschwitz (Antonio Iturbe), and The Boy Who Followed His Father Into Auschwitz (Jeremy Dronfield) have all been joined by The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri, a moving novel that’s gone pretty much straight to no. 4 in the Original Fiction chart and no. 13 in the Top 20. Stories of human courage and strength in wartime, whether fictional or not, seem to really strike a chord with people in an uncertain world right now.

Another story of strength in dark times released lately has this week gone straight to the top. Fr Tony Coote’s book, Live While You Can: A Memoir of Faith, Hope, and the Power of Acceptance is at no. 2 in the Top 20 and no. 1 in Hardback Non-Fiction.

This week’s featured book is another release from the fabulous Dr Harry Barry, at no. 3 in the Top 20 and no. 1 in Paperback Non-Fiction: Self-Acceptance: How to banish the self-esteem myth, accept yourself unconditionally and revolutionise your mental health. Here’s the blurb:

In an age where self-esteem is seen as essential to mental health, we are seeing unprecedented rises in mental health difficulties from depression anxiety, eating disorders and many others. Is there not a dichotomy at play here? Is Self – Esteem (ie ‘I live for my rating’) a reality at all or simply a myth we are all buying into. In this book bestselling author Harry Barry challenges the conventional wisdom and explores why the terms self-acceptance, self-respect and self-actualization are more helpful in developing positive mental health. In his trademark style he also provides practical examples of what we should all be doing instead to build confidence and reach our full potential.

Part 1: The myth of self-esteem
Part 2: Debunking the myth of ‘low self-esteem’
Part 3: Debunking the myth of ‘high self-esteem’
Part 4: Debunking the myth ‘others can dictate my self-esteem’

And here are the charts for this week, starting with the Top 20 and wrapping up with the Top 10 in each category:
