Irish Bestsellers 6th October 2018

Posted in the Magazine ( · Irish Bestseller Lists ).

Lots of new entries in the charts this week! In Hardback Non-Fiction, we’ve got musical contributions from Tom Gilmore with Big Tom: The King of Irish Country battling it out with Nathan Carter’s autobiography Born for the Road: My Story So Far (with Gilmore just pulling over ahead by less than one hundred). Things are also heating up in the cookery section, with Darina Allen’s Simply Delicious the Classic Collection giving Donal Skehan’s Meals In Minutes and The Currabinny Cookbook by James Kavanaugh and William Murray a run for their money.

In Fiction, new entries include the fourth novel from Carlos Ruiz Zafon in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series, The Labyrinth of the Spirits, translated by Lucia Graveswhich is likely to stick around for a while – and it’s possible we may see The Shadows of the Wind return as new readers discover this beloved series. We’ve also a new warm and witty novel from Cathy Kelly, The Year That Changed Everything and of course Robert Galbraith is sticking around with Lethal White which is now at no. 5 in the top 20. Galbraith has been overtaken though, by a new novel from Graham Norton: A Keeper. Brand new and at no. 3 in the Top 20 and no. 2 in Original Fiction (not quite able to overtake Aisling!), A Keeper will probably be around in the charts for a long time yet, going off Norton’s previous longevity.

This week’s featured book is another brand new release, this time from Dara O’Briain. Following from his very popular children’s book Beyond the Sky: You and the Universe, O’Briain is back with more fun facts to get children enthusiastic about science and Secret Science: The Amazing World Beyond Your Eyes is at no. 2 in the Children’s Top 10. With Christmas coming up, it’s a good bet that this is one that’ll stick around too. Here’s a bit more information:
