As things continue to ease—shops re-opening, people returning to work—the charts are becoming more normal. Sales figures are what we might expect, more or less, and whilst there are brand new releases in the charts, they are much more recent than the faithful classics that were so dominant a few weeks ago.

A couple of very new books that have made it into this week’s bestsellers are How To Fall Apart by Laidan Hayes, no. 10 in Paperback Non-Fiction, and Women Don’t Owe You Pretty by Florence Given, at no. 4 in Hardback Non-Fiction. We also have a new book by Dr Harry Barry: Emotional Healing, at no. 5 in Paperback Non-Fiction, and this week’s featured book: Roisin Meaney’s newest release, The Restaurant (in case you’ve forgotten, they’re those places you used to go to and people would cook you food, before COVID19…). Here’s the blurb!

When Emily’s heart is broken by the love of her life, she never imagined that she would find herself running a small restaurant in the converted hat shop her grandmother left to her. The Food of Love offers diners more than just a home-cooked meal — and even though Emily has sworn off romance forever, it doesn’t stop her hoping for happiness for her regulars, like widowed Bill who hides a troubling secret, single mum Heather who ran away from home when she was sixteen, and gentle Astrid whose past is darker than any of her friends could know.
Then, out of the blue, Emily receives a letter from her ex. He’s returning home to Ireland and wants to see her. Soon Emily has some tough decisions to make.
Will she choose the life she could have had, or the one she has ended up in? Is she brave enough to give love a second chance – and wise enough to figure out where it’s truly to be found?

‘Meaney leaves you wanting to know more about the characters and what they do next, almost as if they have become friends’ Irish Independent
‘A gorgeous tale that will delight, charm and captivate the reader’ Swirl and Thread

And now, this week’s charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category.
