There's a very slight chance that the colouring book craze might be slowing down. Our proof? There's only one adult colouring book in our top ten this week. One!
This is quite a different story to our top ten from a few weeks ago, where we had five (out of a possible ten) adult colouring books in the list.
While we've all enjoyed getting mindful with colouring, there is great comfort to be found within the pages of a good book and judging from the shape of our top ten, our Booklovers have been enjoying many good books this week.
Our top ten best-selling books for the week ending Saturday 9 January were:
1. All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
2. The Lake House by Kate Morton
3. The Dressmaker: Film Tie-In Edition by Rosalie Ham
4. Old School (Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book 10) by Jeff Kinney
5. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
6. My Brilliant Friend (The Neapolitan Novels Book 1) by Elena Ferrante
7. I Quit Sugar: Simplicious by Sarah Wilson
8. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
9. The Revenant (Film Tie-In Edition) by Michael Punke
10. Lost Ocean by Johanna Basford
Sarah Wilson's latest I Quit Sugar
book is back in our top ten this week, and we wonder if there are a few people out there who have resolved to cut back on sugar this year. If so, we support you 100%! Sarah Wilson is in fact one of the Australian pioneers
of removing sugar from the diet, and we think her books are excellent.
Hanya Yanagihara's Man Booker Prize-nominated novel makes its Dymocks top ten debut this week. Our well-read staff voted it in at number one in their list of best books of 2015, which you can read here
, but all reports suggest it's not an easy read. We recommend you read while cradling a box of tissues.
Another book making its top ten debut is Michael Punke's 2002 novel, which has of course been adapted into a Golden Globe Award-winning film. Do you like to read the book before you see the film? If so, you should check out this list
, which runs through some of the book-to-film adaptations coming to our screens in 2016.
