This week’s charts are full of familiar names. From the unbeatable Heather Morris’ The Tattooist of Auschwitz (back at no. 3 in the Top 20, after months in the charts), to Graham Norton and his second novel A Keeper which has returned to no. 12 this week. A new edition of The Gift of Friends by the much-missed Emma Hannigan is also back in the charts, at no. 7 in the Top 20 and no. 3 (combined editions) in Mass Market Fiction.

This week’s featured book is a fabulous choice for lovers of Marian Keyes and Katie Fford. Bride Squad Runaway is a collaboration between Caroline Grace-Cassidy and Lisa C. Carey; only just released, it’s shot to no. 5 in Original Fiction, above such beloved authors as Sinead Moriarty and John Connolly, and no. 18 in the Top 20. Here’s the blurb:

Ava and her trusty bride squad set off on an unforgettable Irish roadtrip. Along the way there’s ice-cream vans, roguish strangers and a very handsome Frenchman. Join them for this laugh-out-loud, feel-good romance with a twist.

‘Tu es belle – wow! Look at you!’

It should be the perfect moment. A sunny day at Vintage Brides, and Ava O’Hara is twirling in her wedding dress. Super-hot Stefan likes what he sees…

But Stefan won’t be the one standing at the altar. It’ll be Simon, Ava’s wannabe rockstar fiancé. Or will it?

Simon says he loves her, but he’s got a funny way of showing it. When his indiscretions go viral on the big day, Ava suddenly becomes a bride-NOT-to-be.

She needs her Bride Squad, and fast. It’s time for a runaway! But will Ava come home from her wild Irish roadtrip? And if she does, will it be to love, loss or something entirely different?

A brilliantly funny and uplifting story of love, friendship and freedom by real-life BFFs, Caroline Grace-Cassidy and Lisa C. Carey. Readers of Holly Martin, Marian Keyes and Katie Fforde will love this brilliant collaboration.

What readers are saying about Bride Squad Runaway:

‘The Irish Amy Poehler and Tina Fey – I was crying with laughter!’ – VIP Magazine

‘I loved this joyful romp … tremendous fun!’ – Fiona Gibson

And now on to the charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category:
