Well, that’s a wrap on another successful Reading Ireland Month!
Thanks so much to everyone who joined in!
There have been quite a few final entries in these last few days:
- I reviewed The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan for Kim’s Southern Cross Crime Month and for Reading Ireland Month
- I also rounded up some of the other Irish novels I’ve read this month
- Over on Instagram, Lara Maynard reviewed the audiobook of The Country Girls by Edna O’Brien
- Carla at Carla Loves to Read reviewed Hide and Seek by Jane Casey
- Tony at Tony’s Book World reviewed That Old Country Music by Kevin Barry
- Claire at Word by Word posted this review of Jan Carson’s The Fire Starters quite a few weeks ago and somehow I overlooked sharing it until now.
- Carla at Carla Loves to Read reviewed The Liberation of Bridget Dunne by Patricia Scanlon
- Liz at Just One More Page reviewed The Feast of Lupercal by Brian Moore for both Reading Ireland Month and the Brian Moore at 100 read-along.
- Virginia at Rosepoint Publishing reviewed The Hiding Place by Paula Munier
- Rosemary at Scones and Chaises Longues reviewed Watermelon by Marian Keyes
- JC Greenway at Ten Million Hardbacks reviewed The Undiscovered Country by Aidan McQuade
Thanks so much to everyone who was so enthusiastic about this month of reading, from posting to tweeting, sharing to commenting. We had a whopping 106 posts and you can see them all here at the linky. The linky will stay live for another week, so if you’re sneaking in any posts in April, there is still time!
I have enjoyed it a lot this year and given that I almost decided not to do it anymore, I am delighted that I went with my better judgement!
Will we do it again next year? What do you all think?!
April should be a slightly quieter month on the blog. I am planning to concentrate on reading a few books from the 746 and try and get the count down into the 300s! I’m currently reading Earthly Possessions for Liz’s Anne Tyler Re-read project and I plan to participate in the 1936 Club hosted by Kaggsy and Simon. I’ll be reading Dashiell Hammet’s Double Indemnity for that.
Then I will have to decide if 20 Books of Summer will make a return – it’s always a good way to reduce the 746 but it’s hard to know what to do at the moment when there is still so much uncertainty around everyday life!!
Are there any other reading challenges that any of you are taking part in over the coming months?
Go raibh maith agaibh go léir (thank you all!) for making this Reading Ireland Month one of the best x
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
