Two totally brand new releases starring in the Top 20 this week, and one almost-new release. David Baldacci’s new book Long Road to Mercy came out just at the end of June and is at no. 16 as well as no. 9 in the Mass Market Fiction chart (incidentally, a good week for Mass Market Fiction – all of their Top 10 are in the overall Top 20!), whilst Jo Nesbo is back with Knife at no. 8, and John Grisham returns to the shelves with The Reckoning at no. 10 – so also a good week for crime! David Walliams, meanwhile, hits another week at no. 1 with The World’s Worst Teachers.

This week’s featured book is the latest release from hugely popular fiction author, Roisin Meaney. The Birthday Party also came out just at the end of June, and is no. 13 in the Top 20 and no. 5 for Original Fiction. Here’s the blurb:

‘A wonderful storyteller’ Ciara Geraghty 

‘Meaney is utterly credible, utterly authentic, utterly irresistible’ Irish Independent

‘Roisin Meaney is a skilful storyteller’ Sheila O’Flanagan

The new novel from No.1 bestselling author Roisin Meaney.

Another summer is in full swing on Roone, an island off the west coast of Ireland, and preparations are underway for a big birthday party at the local hotel. But before then, love and friendship will be tested …

Who is the stranger who arrives at Imelda’s door, just weeks after her world falls to pieces?

How long can Eve hide her secret from Andy?

And will Nell and Laura’s friendship survive the storm that’s about to hit the island?

The Birthday Party is the spellbinding new novel from the queen of summer reading
