We were thrilled to get copies of The Secret Commonwealth, Philip Pullman’s new fantasy novel, on our shelves, and it’s no surprise that it’s last week’s bestselling young adult novel.

Set twenty years after La Belle Sauvage, and ten years after the indelible conclusion of His Dark Materials, this new novel whisks us back into a thrilling and dangerous world of enigmatic daemons, Oxford colleges and shadowy institutions, with a now adult Lyra a our guide.

Our bestselling children’s book is Raina Telgemeier’s brilliant graphic novel, Guts, which is suitable for ages 8+. Other picks for middle fiction readers proving popular with Readings customers include two non-fiction books from leading First Nations writers: Welcome to Country by Marcia Langton (for 10+) and Young Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe (for 8+).

Bestselling picture books include a bright Parisian adventure (Molly, Mop and Moppet’s Adventures in Paris), a wistful story about resilience and feeling small in a big world (Tilly) and a glorious ode to tractors (All of the Factors of Why I Love Tractors).
