Welcome back to another week in the charts; not much going on this week, think we’re all taking a little breather! We’re seeing The President’s Daughter by Bill Clinton and James Patterson climb the charts this week, to no. 2, but no one can catch a good weight-loss book when it really takes off, and that’s what we’re seeing in these charts. Trisha Lewis’ new book Trisha’s 21-Day Reset: 3 weeks to kick-start your weight-loss journey is pulling ahead – albeit only just – at no. 1 in the Top 20. Otherwise, it’s a great week for fiction in the Top 20; not only is The President’s Daughter doing well, congrats to her, but we’ve got novels occupying thirteen of those Top 20 spots. There are entries here for Matt Haig, with The Midnight Library at no. 10; Jo Spain, whose The Perfect Lie is still doing well two weeks after we featured it here, at no. 9; and this week’s featured book, The Book Club by ever-popular author Roisin Meaney at no. 18 and no. 8 in the Top 10 Original Fiction.

Here’s the blurb for The Book Club:

A tragic accident leaves the tight-knit book club in the small seaside town of Fairweather reeling. Then stranger Tom McLysaght arrives in the community, and the members of the club find their lives changing in ways they never could have imagined.

None of them realise that Tom is hiding a secret. On the surface, his move to Fairweather was to escape his highflying life in London and to put some much-needed distance between him and his ex-fiancée – but deep down Tom knows that there are some things he cannot run from.

As the months pass with book club gatherings, secrets are shared and hurts begin to heal. New friendships might be the last thing on their minds but the members of the book club are about to discover that opening themselves up to other people might be the only thing that will help them all to live, and to love, again.

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