by Dudu Busani-Dube
The fourth book in Busani-Dube’s wildly popular, independently-published Hlomu series has hit the number one spot straight off the bat. Fans will be pleased to hear that the new addition to the cycle fills in some of the missing pieces that were left open in the first three books – but don’t expect all your questions to be answered … perhaps that will happen in the next book, Mess – and you won’t have to wait long, as the fifth book is expected out before the end of November.
by Jay Shetty
Having stormed to number one in SA from nowhere last month, Jay Shetty’s book stays strong at number two. Over the past three years, Shetty has become a favourite in the hearts and minds of millions. In his inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power.
by Jodi Picoult
From international bestseller Jodi Picoult, a new novel about a woman who thinks she knows everything there is to know about dying. As a death doula she helps her clients fix what is left undone so they can peacefully make the final transition. But when her plane plummets from the sky and she thinks she is experiencing the last moments of her life, she is shocked to find that she isn’t thinking of her husband or daughter – but of a road she strayed from 15 years earlier and question of what a well-lived life means, and who she might have been.
by Ken Follett
Follett’s latest epic begins in 997 CE and is set against the background of the medieval church. It is the end of the Dark Ages, and England faces attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Life is hard, and those with power wield it harshly – often in conflict with the king. Into this uncertain world three people come to the fore – and come into dangerous conflict with a ruthless bishop, who will do anything to increase his wealth and power.

by Deon Meyer
Deon Meyer se jongste spanningsroman het skaars die rakke getref en dis alreeds ’n topverkoper in Suid-Afrika. Bennie Griessel en Vaughn Cupido is terug en dié keer kry hulle met die donkerste drif denkbaar te doen – gierigheid. Daar’s ook ’n koelbloedige moord, ’n student wat verdwyn het en verdagte gebeure op ’n peperduur wynplaas. Dis lekkerlees op sy lekkerste.

by Dikgang Moseneke
Law as a profession was not Dikgang Moseneke’s first choice. As a small boy he told his aunt that he wanted to be a traffic officer, but life had other plans for him. All Rise, Moseneke’s second memoir, covers his years on the bench, with particular focus on his 15-year term as a judge at South Africa’s apex court, the Constitutional Court – including as the deputy chief justice.
