It’s another week in the charts, and this week we have a deluge of new books to celebrate! SIX of the Top 20 are brand new books. We’ve got Murder at Roaringwater by Nick Foster, at no. 15 and no. 5 in Paperback Non-Fiction; a new book from Jo Spain at no. 14 and no. Original Fiction, The Perfect Lie; The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman is of course not new, but the paperback edition is brand new out and straight into the Top 20 at no. 14; singer Billie Eilish has released a memoir, Billie Eilish, which has landed at no. 12 in the Top 20 and no. 2 in the Children’s Top 10, just behind Dav Pilkey’s Mothering Heights: Dog Man 10; and then heading up to the top of the Top 20, at no. 2 we have Snowflake by Louise Nealon (at no. 1 in Original Fiction); and grabbing this week’s top spot is Gerry Hussey with Awaken Your Power Within. Phew! (Bonus points to anyone reading this with the internal voice of a racing commentator.)

Hussey’s book is also our Featured Book for this week, and is totally in keeping with the self-empowerment surge we’ve noticed over the past few weeks. Here’s the blurb for Awaken Your Power Within:

Gerry Hussey is Ireland’s leading health and performance coach and founder of the incredible movement Soul Space. Here in his first book, Awaken Your Power Within, he brings us on an open, honest and mind-blowing human encounter that takes us inside the heart and mind of a young boy who dared to ask deeper questions about the mind and soul. 
With amazing insights, life lessons, and powerful meditations Awaken Your Power Within unlocks the truths about how we experience the world and shows us how we can break free from unconscious, self-limiting beliefs, habits, emotions and thinking patterns to reshape and reclaim our inner world, enabling us to live as our truest and most powerful self. 
From letting go of the fear of not being enough, to overcoming the dis-ease of distraction, to opening up to a deeper level of consciousness, Awaken Your Power Within is a powerful guide for all ages, one which takes us on a path of discovery to a deeper understanding of who we truly are and the limitless possibilities of which we are all capable. 
‘You are an infinite being with infinite potential. All you need to do is open yourself to a new consciousness, a true vision of who you really are and awaken to the power within’ Gerry Hussey

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