Quinn - Trevor Birney

A near mythical figure within Ireland, Quinn details the life of the titular Sean Quinn - at one time Ireland's richest man - and his fight to the last to save his life's work.

Written by the Emmy-nominated Trevor Birney, it skilfully grapples with the realities of how the former business tycoon lost his empire and the turn his life took following the collapse. An absolutely riveting, gripping novel.

Pinch of Nom: Enjoy - Kate & Kay Allison

The healthy eating phenomenon that is Pinch of Nom returns with another hundred scrumptious recipes - from fakeaways to desserts - that are both tantalising to the taste buds and good for the waistline.

We are also excited to announce that this stunning cookbook is also on offer for half price at the minute!


Oh Miriam: Stories From an Extraordinary Life - Miriam Margolyes

Ever outspoken, controversial and spectacularly entertaining, Britain's naughtiest national treasure returns after the remarkable success of This Much is True with more juicy, jaw-dropping stories from her eventful life and career.

An absolute delight, we encourage everyone to buckle up for the most irrepressible, hilarious, and moving read of 2023.

Skandar and the Phantom Rider - A.F. Steadman

The spectacular sequel to the mega-selling Skandar and the Unicorn Thief finds our young hero and his friends embarking on their second year at the Eyrie amidst the terrifying slaughter of immortal unicorns by sinister, unknown forces. 

Oftentimes, very rightfully, compared to works such as J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, the expanding universe Steadman created with Skandar is sure to entice and thrill young readers.
