Our Weekly Independent Bookshop Bestseller List (week ending 17th December 2023)

About Our Irish Top Ten Books for Children and Teens

The Top 10 children’s and young adult fiction bestseller list that appears in the Irish Times and other newspapers  (compiled using data from Nielsen Book Scan) is full of British/US books. Most weeks, there are no books written or illustrated by Irish/Irish based artists on this list – we’d like to do something about that!

Every week during Oct-Dec 2023 we will publish our own Top 10 children’s and YA fiction bestseller list. The list will be informed by the top ten bestsellers in a different independent bookshop across Ireland each week. The list will be available each week here on www.discoveririshkidsbooks.ie
