Our bestseller list last week showed that it was a week of intriguing character studies, moving memoir and thrilling crime drama for Aussie readers. In the top spot is Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women, an extraordinary non-fiction piece exploring the nature of female desire across the lives of three women. Our head book buyer, Alison, called it ‘a masterclass in empathy’ and ‘undoubtedly one of the books of the year’. Read her full review here.

In The Prettiest Horse in the Glue Factory, comedian and memoirist Corey White takes us through his life growing up in foster care. It is a memoir of trauma and survival from one of Australia’s brightest young voices – at once deeply moving, stirringly profound and darkly funny. And in Stephanie Wood’s Fake, a narcissist con-man with a serial online dating habit is put under the microscope in a riveting, important account of contemporary love, and the resilience of those who have witnessed its darkest sides. Fake will appeal to lovers of Netflix’s Dirty John.

For those of us who just love a good crime read, we would recommend Jo Nesbo’s new Harry Hole thriller, Knife (Harry Hole, Book 12), and Adrian McKinty’s The Chain, sitting at places 9 and 10 on last week’s bestseller list, respectively. In Knife (Harry Hole, Book 12), Harry Hole is about to come face to face with an old deadly foe, and in The Chain, a parent whose child has been abducted must abduct another to save them, in a chain letter sequence straight out of every parent’s worst nightmares.
