Reading Ireland Month: Week Two Round Up!

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the halfway point of this year’s Reading Ireland Month! It’s been a great week of posts and reviews.

My round-up post is a little late this week as I am just back from a wonderful weekend on the North Coast, spending much needed time with family. When you are blessed with dry weather, there really is nowhere better!

Due to other outside pressures, I didn’t have a lot of time for my own reviews this week, but I did post about the Forthcoming Irish Novels I’m most looking forward to in 2022 and I hosted a giveaway for a copy of Nora by Nuala O’Connor.

Winner of the giveaway was Lisa Hill at ANZ LitLovers

Here are some of the great reviews that were shared this week:



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.

This week’s prompt is Irish or Not Irish? Us Irish can be a sneaky lot – are there any writers you thought were Irish but turned out not to be, or alternatively, are there any writers you didn’t even realise were Irish? Share your favourites, or the most surprising, during this coming week.

Check back in next week when I’ll have an interview with a great Irish independent publisher, a look at forthcoming short story collections and some ACTUAL reviews!

  1. There are so many titles here, and in your other round up, which entice me! Surely, these are a great resource for the future (especially when I have the International Booker Prize Longlist read!). Thanks, Cathy.

  2. What a great resource your round ups are! I see many titles that intrigue me, and which airplane to get to when I’ve read the International Booker Prize long list. ☺️

  3. I’m way behind on my own contributions, hope to rectify this very soon. I’m seeing names in your list of other peoples reviews that are new to me. So many temptations….

Hmmm so I am the Hungry Reader. The one who reads. The one who is constantly reading or wanting to read constantly. This blog is all about the books I have read, the ones that I am reading and gems that I plan to read in the future or whenever it arrives.
