And welcome to the first Irish Bestsellers of 2020!

This time of year we’re usually hit by a deluge of healthy living books, but there’s only a handful so far this year. Pinch of NomL: Everyday Light by Kay Featherstone and Kate Allinson is top of the charts (on its third week in that position over in the UK) as well as the first Pinch of Nom at no. 17 and no. 4 in Hardback Non-Fiction; and a little further down the Top 20 is Eat Up, Raise Your Game by Daniel Davey. Mrs Hinch: The Activity Journal is also in the Hardback Non-Fiction chart, if you’re looking to improve your home rather than your diet this January!

The Children’s chart is dominated by long-running series, with three Wimpy Kids, three Dog Man, and a new Dork Diaries, leaving only a couple of spaces for the usually Harry Potter and David Walliams.

However, our featured book is from our very own Sam Blake, with a bit of exciting news. Keep Your Eyes on Me is newly out and straight into the Original Fiction chart, and we’re incredibly excited to hear that the audiobook is narrated by Evanna Lynch, better known as Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter films! Huge congratulations to Sam and good luck! Here’s the blurb:

Pacey and exciting and totally joyous.’ Jo Spain, author of The Confession
________________________

You won’t be able to look away

When Vittoria Devine and Lily Power find themselves sitting next to each other on a flight to New York, they discover they both have men in their lives whose impact has been devastating. Lily’s family life is in turmoil, her brother left on the brink of ruin by a con man. Vittoria’s philandering husband’s latest mistress is pregnant.

By the time they land, Vittoria and Lily have realised that they can help each other right the balance. But only one of them knows the real story…

‘Delightfully dark and satisfying’ Roz Watkins, author of the DI Meg Dalton series
