Irish Bestsellers 8th September 2018

Posted in the Magazine ( · Irish Bestseller Lists ).

They said it would never happen, but Eleanor Oliphant and The Tattooist of Auschwitz (nope, still sounds like a Harry Potter spin off…) have been knocked off the top of the Top 20 by not one, but two, new titles!

We featured last week Sally Rooney’s book Normal People and we thought it would do well; here it is at no. 2 and outselling Eleanor Oliphant by over 200 copies. Actually, it’s all change, all over the place, with new titles in the Children’s charts such as Ruby’s Worry by Tom Percival and The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan, both books to look out for. And in Non-Fiction, both Hardback and Paperback have a great selection of new titles: new food from Donal Skehan with Donal’s Meals in Minutes, and Yotam Ottolenghi, who brought us beautiful food from the Middle East with Jerusalem, is back with Ottolenghi SIMPLE. It seems simple and fast food is possibly taking over from complicated health recipes using obscure ingredients?

This week’s featured book is the brand new Dancing with the Tsars  (no, it’s not a typo…) from Ross O’Carroll-Kelly. Only just out and straight to no. 1 in the Top 20 with almost two thousand sales in two days, here’s the blurb:

I felt like I was living in a world teetering on the brink …

Life as a stay-in-bed husband turned out to be a lot more complicated than I expected. My wife was pregnant with a baby that possibly wasn’t mine. My old man was engaged in a war with the feminist movement that he was never going to win. And my old dear was making a lot of unexplained trips to Russia.

Throw into the mix an eldest son with a possible sex addiction and three infant sons who were so thick they made me look like Edward Einstein.

I might have actually gone over the edge if it wasn’t for the belief of my daughter and the challenge of helping her win the greatest prize that South Dublin has to offer – the Strictly Mount Anville glitter ball.

And here we go with this week’s Bestseller Charts, starting with the Top 20 and finishing with the Top 10 in each category:
