You should read Sally Rooney's latest book. Fresh on the shelves of your local bookshop, this tale of an on-again off-again romance following two Mayo school students as they grow up and head off to Trinity College is even more intense than Rooney's debut novel Conversations With Friends. It's nominated for The Man Booker Prize this year, so you'll enjoy finding out what all the hype's about.

The Gospel According to Blindboy
Judging by your choice of cereal, you probably don't take life too seriously. If you want to read some short stories about a man who pisses on his jeans every week, a Tipperary girl who has joined ISIS and a van powered by the pitch of Cork people's accents, this is the book you should read. If it's not appealing to you at all, go ahead and pick another cereal.
