Florence Given's Women Don't Owe You Pretty (Cassell) and The Hairy Bikers Eat to Beat Type 2 Diabetes (Seven Dials) also entered the Most-Sold: Non-Fiction chart.

Lisa Jewell's The Family Upstairs (Cornerstone) rose eight places to hit the Most-Sold: Fiction number one, with Bernardine Evaristo's Girl, Woman, Other (Penguin) rising to second place. Onjali Q Rauf's The Boy at the Back of the Class (Orion Children's) made its debut in the chart in 12th place, as did George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (Sanage) in 13th.
