2 Irish-based novels have been ranked among the best of 2017 in the new ranking by the RTE Literary Arts Awards.
The award, which was launched last month, is given annually to novels which represent the best in the genre.
The list is dominated by novels written by women, with six being penned by women authors and three by men.
The two women novels in the top five, The Girl with the Broken Heart and The Boy Who Fell in Love, are both by women.
The second most popular novel in the rankings is by an Irishman, The Man Who Loved the Sea, by James McBride.
It is followed by The Man who Killed the Sea by Jhumpa Lahiri, The Good Girl Who Lost her Boy by Eoin McManus, and The House with No Doors by Cormac McCarthy.
The Irish-medium novelist category is divided into the following categories: novel, short story, play, and short story collection.
The best novel in each category is named by the jury of the RTVA Literary Awards, which is chaired by former RTE News editor, and former Irish Times journalist, Eamonn McCann.
The winners will be announced at the Irish Literary Awards in Edinburgh on October 6.
