Dan Brown is still at No.1 although sales in Ireland aren’t nearly as strong as last week – Gillian Flynn has the gold star for consistency, selling over 1000 books every week (have you read Gone Girl yet? Read our review here). Colum McCann’s brilliant Transatlantic is holding its own in the top 5, with newcomer Evie Hunter’s The Pleasures of Summer on the way up.

If you’ve read one of the top twenty books, tell us what you thought of it in our review section!
