Our top 10 bestsellers of the week

  1. Three Women by Lisa Taddeo
  2. The Art of Growing Up by John Marsden
  3. Open House Melbourne Weekend: 2019 Program by Open House Melbourne
  4. From Here On, Monsters by Elizabeth Bryer
  5. Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton
  6. The New Girl by Daniel Silva
  7. Good Girl, Bad Girl by Michael Robotham
  8. Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe
  9. Plots and Prayers by Niki Savva
  10. Normal People by Sally Rooney

It would be remiss of us not to mention that the overall bestseller last week was actually a children’s title: the indomitable combined forces of Messrs Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, whose The 117-Storey Treehouse was snatched up and devoured in one sitting by Australian children everywhere last week. Top of our adult bestseller list, however, was the nonfiction book that has everyone talking: Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women, a frank, deeply researched and empathetic look at female desire through the lives of three American women.

John Marsden’s The Art of Growing Up and Open House Melbourne Weekend: 2019 Program round out our top three. If you attended Open House Melbourne this weekend, and were inspired by the architecture and design on display, make sure you pick up this year’s beautifully designed program as a keepsake.

It’s also lovely to see a debut novel by a local author/translator Elizabeth Bryer in the top 10. Our reviewer Gabrielle Williams recommends it for anyone who enjoys fiction that is ‘experimental and slightly on the noir-ish side’. Read her full review here.

Thrillers are high on everyone’s winter reading list, with unnerving new reads by Daniel Silva, (The New Girl) and Michael Robotham (Good Girl, Bad Girl), while Niki Savva’s riveting inside story of the Liberal Party’s leadership power plays, Plots and Prayers, is a thriller of a different sort.
