David Walliams tops the charts again with The World’s Worst Children, but it could hardly be closer as this week’s featured book is only four books behind! Me Before You by JoJo Moyes hit the cinemas yesterday, and that’s given a huge boost to the bestselling novel, topping the Mass Market chart and coming in a very close second in the Top 20. Here’s the blurb:

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

Close to our hearts here at Writing.ie, Sam Blake’s Little Bones is set for a third week at No 1 in Original Fiction and getting great reviews on both Amazon and Good reads. Next week we’re looking forward to seeing Bailey’s Prize Winner Lisa McInerney’s The Glorious Heresies hitting the charts!

And without further ado, here’s this week’s Top 20:
