And it’s all change in the charts this week, as we have some very recent releases shaking things up. Just popping into the Top 20, as well as the Top 10 in Original Fiction, is a brand new book from Jane Harper, Force of Nature. We’ve also got new year’s resolutions catching up with the Top 20, as books such as 12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson, The 4 Pillar Plan by Dr Rangan Chatterjee, The Fat Loss Plan by old favourite Joe Wicks, 5 Ingredients by Jamie Oliver and How to be Human: the manual by Ruby Wax all land in the Top 20 in 7, 13, 14, 19 and 17 respectively.

The Top 20 sees a big turnaround in the top spots as well, with the newest installment of the Me Before You series by JoJo Moyes, Still Me, landing in no. 2; Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman, which has been a regular of the charts since its release, now lands in no. 3 with its paperback release; and stealing the no. 1 place is a brand new release from debut novelist A.J. Finn, The Woman in the Window.

This week’s featured book is yet another new release, Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh. This tense thriller has some great reviews from the likes of Ian Rankin and Lee Child and is well worth a look. Here’s the blurb:

THE SERIAL KILLER ISN’T ON TRIAL.

HE’S ON THE JURY…

****************

‘THIRTEEN is my favourite read of the year.’ Sarah Pinborough

‘Outstanding.’ Lee Child

‘Smart and original. This is a belter of a book.’ Clare Mackintosh

****************

‘To your knowledge, is there anything that would preclude you from serving on this jury?’

Murder wasn’t the hard part. It was just the start of the game.

Joshua Kane has been preparing for this moment his whole life. He’s done it before. But this is the big one.

This is the murder trial of the century. And Kane has killed to get the best seat in the house.

But there’s someone on his tail. Someone who suspects that the killer isn’t the man on trial.

Kane knows time is running out – he just needs to get to the conviction without being discovered.

And now, on to the charts. We kick off with the Top 20, and wrap things up with the Top 10 in each category.
