Welcome to another week in the Irish Bestsellers charts! Not tons of movement this week; Pinch of Nom has fallen down in the Top 20 to no. 19 and no. 11 for Everyday Light, and the Children’s Top 10 seems to have become once more a battleground between David Walliams and Dave Pilkey’s Dog Man books. Marian Keyes continues to hold the no. 1 spot, and rising star Delia Owens comes right up to no. 3 with Where the Crawdads Sing, which is receiving rave reviews.

This week’s featured book is no. 3 in the Paperback Non-Fiction Top 10. Running From the Shadows by Stephanie Hickey with Shane Dunphy was released just two days before these charts were compiled, and we expect it to stay in the charts for a while yet! Here’s the blurb:

In Running from the Shadows Stephanie Hickey tells, in her own words, how she survived abuse at the hands of a trusted family member and of how running, a simple physical activity helped her achieve mindfulness, but also to rediscover love and faith in her body – to reclaim it.

Charting her life growing up in the rolling countryside of Waterford in the safety of her beloved family to the moment her childhood was shattered, to the court case where she waived her anonymity, to how she was able to reclaim a sense of herself through the sport which became like a therapy, Running from the Shadows is told with humour, strength and incredible courage — a book that reveals how, even when things seem at their bleakest, a run through the Irish countryside, can bring you back into the light.

 

And now on to this week’s charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category.
