Posted in the Magazine ( · Irish Bestseller Lists ).

This week’s big story is, as predicted, the newest book from David Walliams, The World’s Worst Teachers, which is storming the Children’s Top 10 by nearly three times the sales of second place, and right at the top of the Top 20 too. We also have a brand new book from Roisin Meaney—The Birthday Party is at no. 16 in the Top 20 and no. 6 in Original Fiction—and a new novel called I Owe You One from Sophie Kinsella is at no. 9 in Mass Market Fiction, just missing out on the Top 20.

The featured book this week is a new prizewinner! Idaho by Emily Ruskovich, at no. 3 in Mass Market Fiction and no. 6 in the Top 20, just won the International Dublin Literary Award. Here’s more information:

Winner of the International Dublin Literary Award 

One hot August day a family drives to a mountain clearing to collect birch wood. Jenny, the mother, is in charge of lopping any small limbs off the logs with a hatchet. Wade, the father, does the stacking. The two daughters, June and May, aged nine and six, drink lemonade, swat away horseflies, bicker, sing snatches of songs as they while away the time.

But then something unimaginably shocking happens, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction.

Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize

And now on to the Irish Bestseller Charts themselves, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category:
