life before us roisin meaney

Welcome back to another week in the charts! This week the trend is definitely all about binging on your favourite authors – there are so many double entries in both the Top 20 and the individual Top 10s!

Richard Osman, for example, sees both of his Thursday Murder Club books in the Top 20, as well as nos. 5 and 6 in the Mass Market Fiction Top 10. Alice Oseman’s Heartstopper novels are nos. 2–7 in the Children’s Top 10; and Sally Rooney and Colleen Hoover between them account for 6 of the top 10 Mass Market Fiction. Hoover also grabs the no. 1 spot in the Top 20 with one of her most popular books to date, It Ends With Us. The sequel to this, by the way, It Starts With Us, is due in October 2022 so keep an eye out.

This week’s featured book is from the ever-popular Roisin Meaney. Her newest book, Life Before Us, has come into the charts at no. 8 in Original Fiction and we expect to see it stick around for a fair while yet. Here’s the blurb:

Life Before Us is a wonderfully woven, beautiful book full of hope, love and characters so fully formed I feel like I know them. I adored it’ Emer McLysaght

‘A warm, insightful story about new beginnings and the power of kindness’ Rachael English

Three facts about George
His daughter Suzi is the best thing in his life.
He thinks it might finally be time to get over Suzi’s mum.
He’s never tried online dating but there’s a first time for everything.

Three facts about Alice
She’s about to find out that her boyfriend is lying to her.
She never expected to return to her hometown (especially not without a job or a place to live).
Even though her heart has been trampled on, she’s still holding out for love.

One fact about love
It’s out there for George and Alice.
All that needs to happen is for them to meet

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