Well by gosh and begorrah you are all well and truly getting into the spirit of Reading Ireland Month this week – it’s been a great few days of posts and chat.

On 746 Books, it was Classic Novels week and I reviewed:

I also wrote a piece on four ground breaking anthologies of women’s writing from Ireland and Northern Ireland for International Women’s Day.

I was blown away this week by the number and enthusiasm of reviews from other bloggers, so thank you so much for taking part. If I’ve missed your post, please do shout in the comments and I’ll add you in.

Remember, if you are posting for Reading Ireland Month, link your post up to the Linky on my Master Post or use the hashtag #readingirelandmonth19 on Twitter and I’ll be sure to catch it and share.

Here are the great posts that went up this week:

Nancy Elin posted not one but four reviews this week, giving me a run for my money!

Rosepoint Publishing also posted three times this week and laid out plans for the rest of the month:

Michael at Inexhaustible Invitations posted his reading plans and his first review:

Add to this a raft of other amazing reviews:

What I’m loving most is the range of books being read and reviewed, it’s fantastic to see and really inspiring so thank you all for your efforts.

Once again I held a giveaway for a copy of The Country Girls trilogy by Edna O’Brien and using my very scientific, very technical approach, the Begorrathon helpers picked another winner, so congratulations to Callum McLaughlin!


Reading Ireland Month continues next week with Short Story Week where I’ll review a few collections; host another giveaway; highlight forthcoming collections that I’m looking forward to and focus on the stories of a certain writer who is very close to the staff here at Begorrathon HQ!

Let’s keep this celebration going!

  1. The range of books people have been reviewing really has been something. Looking forward to seeing your short story collection reviews this week!


  2. OMG, that Derry Girls gif! Do people in Ireland know and like that show? I practically binge watched the whole thing on Netflix. I just loved all four of the girls. And even though I had the subtitles on, they would say things I still didn’t know, which made me smile 🙂
