And we’re into May already! We don’t have a great deal of movement in this week’s charts – The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse by Charlie Markets continues to ride high, at no. 2; Dav Pilkey continues to dominate the Children’s Top 10 as well as taking no. 6 in the Top 20 with Dog Man 10: Mothering Heights.

Speaking of the Children’s Top 10, one thing to note is the domination of Leigh Bardugo with the Shadow and Bone series, due to the arrival on Netflix of the brand-new adaptation – yet another example of how interconnected our viewing and reading habits are – it’s only this week that the Bridgerton books are not appearing in the charts for the first time since Christmas!

This week’s featured book is one of our new arrivals. The Daly Dish Rides Again by Gina and Karol Daly is steaming ahead at no. 1 in the Top 20, with more than double the sales of Charlie Mackesy in no. 2. Perhaps lockdown has led to us all craving a little extra enjoyment in our meals whilst being conscious of those extra pounds from snacks…? Here’s the Daly Dish blurb:

Instagram sensations and debut cookbook authors Gina and Karol Daly had a massive hit in 2020 with their first cookbook, The Daly Dish. Now they are back with more food that looks so decadent, you will find it hard to believe it will help you to achieve your slimming goals. Just ask Gina and Karol – between them they have lost over 10 stone and feel better than ever!

Compatible with the principles of many popular diet programmes, you will find fan favourites such as Tasty Tacos, No Stress Stew and Perfect Pizza. The Daly Dish Rides Again will have you looking forward to dinner every night and looking forward to weighing in on the scales too!

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