Another week, another no. 1 spot for David Williams’ Megamonster! Otherwise, a pretty quiet week in the Top 20; one brand new release, sneaking in at no. 19, is “Quentin Tarantino’s first novel”, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. We’ll have to keep an eye on Tarantino to see if he climbs the charts over the coming weeks!

We do have a couple more new releases over the Top 10s, with Karin Slaughter’s newest book False Witness at no. 1 in Original Fiction and no. 4 in the Top 20, and this week’s featured book, in to the Children’s Top 10 at no. 4. Aldrin Adams and the Cheese Nightmares by Paul Howard is a bit of light relief this week with its fun and bright cover. Here’s the blurb:

The laugh-out-loud funny children’s book from the number-one-bestselling Ross O’Carroll Kelly author, Paul Howard. Illustrated throughout by Lee Cosgrove.

Aldrin Adams is an ordinary boy with an extraordinary superpower. When he eats cheese, just before he goes to sleep at night, he can enter into other people’s dreams… and their nightmares! 

But why has he, of all people, been given this ability? What is he supposed to do with it? And why doesn’t it come with some kind of instruction manual that explains how it works? 

There are so many questions that require answers. 

Luckily, Aldrin’s dad owns the biggest and finest cheesemonger’s for miles and miles around, offering him unlimited access to some of the stinkiest cheeses in the world as he tries to figure it all out.  

What Aldrin doesn’t realise, as he embarks on his journey of discovery, is that he is being watched by Habeas Grusselvart, a mysterious, supernatural villain who creates nightmares for millions and millions of children every night. Suddenly, a young boy poses a threat to his plans to control the world through fear. Which is why he must be stopped – at all costs! 

Join Aldrin Adams on an unforgettable adventure as he steps into a world of mystery and magic and cheeses that seriously, SERIOUSLY pong!

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