Reading Ireland Month: Week One Round Up!

Well, that brings week one of Reading Ireland Month to a close and what a great week to kick everything off!

Reading lists are being made and book piles assembled and this week saw planning posts by Claire at Word for Word, Rebecca at Bookish Beck, Fictionophile, Karen at Booker Talk and Nancy Elin, who has chosen some great plays.

This week’s prompt was ‘My Top Five Irish…’ and I posted a list of my Top Five Irish Movies. Other Top Fives included:

Feel free to join in with next week’s prompt which is My Year in Irish Lit. Have you read or reviewed any Irish literature over the past year? Share your highlights, tell us about your favourite book by an Irish author last year, or a book you were looking forward to but didn’t get round to reading.


This week I reviewed The Dublin Railway Murder by Thomas Morris and posted my Irish edition of Six Degrees of Separation. We’ve had some other great reviews and posts this week:

If you’ve posted for Reading Ireland Month and I haven’t shared your link, do let me know in the comments.

Check back in next week when I’ll be highlighting some great Irish novels coming later this year and there will be a special giveaway for International Women’s Day.

Thanks to all who have taken part so far, read, commented on and retweeted Reading Ireland Month posts. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the hashtag #readingirelandmonth22 and link up any posts in the comments here at my master post.

  1. I’m already making wishlists of future purchases based on all these reviews.
    Thanks for the mention of my attempt at a reading list – i there was an Olympic event for this I could race away with the gold.

  2. I just started reading Watermelon by Marian Keyes last night. The first book I have read by that author. So far I am liking it, more than I expected to.

  3. Lists…without them my reading would be chaotic and mood-infuenced.
    Mood at the moment is strongly determined by the news from Ukraine. But I must not fall into
    doomscrolling and find some literary ‘escapism’ in Irish literature. The Irish showed the world its
    tenacity during its turbulent history…so too the people in Ukraine have risen to the moment.
    Thanks so much for the ‘shout-outs’ and for hosting this challenge each year!
