The Irish Independent asks a heap of very smart people for their book choices of the Summer… and then they asked me.

My inner teenage-reader is craving more in the wake of John Green’s The Fault in our Stars (Puffin, €16.60) and RJ Palacio’s Wonder (Bodley Head, €16.60), two excellent teen novels from earlier this year, and I’m hoping that Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman’s beautifully illustrated break-up tome, Why We Broke Up (Electric Monkey, €11.50) will fill that hankering. For the rest of the summer I’m re-reading Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series — ending with a bang in The Last Guardian (Puffin, €16.60) — and having kept up with Artemis, Holly, Mulch and Butler I don’t want to miss a thing.

Check out some pretty mixed recommendations!
