Whilst Europe struggles to adjust to widespread lockdowns and wakes to a world quite unlike anything we might have predicted a couple of months ago, the Irish bestseller charts resume something like normalcy. As we move further away from World Book Day 2020, the Top 20 is now entirely free of children’s books, and the Children’s Top 10 has two non-World Book Day titles in it (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Wrecking Ball and The Meltdown). There is also a boost for inspirational books, with The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy (returning to the Top 20 at no. 14) being widely acclaimed (and deservedly) for its beautiful artwork and messages providing encouragement and support to people struggling with anxiety and low mood.

There are mixed predictions on how this crisis will affect authors; whilst some authors will undoubtedly suffer from cancelled gigs, and bookstores are forced to close their doors, it’s likely that enforced and unplanned quarantine will lead many readers to turn towards ordering books online. It’s a time when it would be useful to be able to compare print sales to ebooks, online orders to footfall. This week’s numbers are very good, with the top eight books clocking over a thousand sales each this week.

Our featured book this week is one of a few new releases this week—the others including Our Little Cruelties by Liz Nugent at no. 6, and The Boy From The Woods by Harlan Coben at no. 18—and has gone straight to no. 1 with a staggering 6.5 thousand sales! Instagram stars Gina and Karol Daly have brought out a book based on their hugely popular recipes: The Daly Dish: 100 Masso Slimming Recipes for Every Day, and here’s the blurb:

Gina and Karol Daly have always been larger than life, there just isn’t as much of them anymore. Together they’ve lost almost ten stone, and they’ve done it while eating food that looks like it could have come straight from the local takeaway.

Just over a year ago they started sharing their recipes on Instagram and have since garnered over 100,000 followers between them.

The Daly Dish is the first collection of recipes that have made the couple an Instagram sensation. For anyone who wants to eat the food they love, but with slimming tweaks that support weight loss and maintenance, it is packed with delicious and easy-to-recreate meals, proving you can lose weight while still loading your plate!

And now the charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category.
