Reading Ireland Month: Week Three Round-up!

Well, there we have it. Week 3 of Reading Ireland Month is complete. Where is this month going?

This week I reviewed two collections of short stories Dance Move by Wendy Erskine and Homesickness by Colin Barrett. I also posted an interview with James Doyle of Turnpike Books and shared a post highlighting some great short story collections coming out later this year.

I was also lucky enough this week to see two of Ireland’s most exciting novelists – Conor O’Callaghan and Caoilinn Hughes – in conversation at Seamus Heaney HomePlace. It was fantastic to hear them talking about poetry, how they write novels and what they are planning to write next. (Apologies for the poor quality photo!)

There has been another fantastic amount of posts this week:


I’ve also had some great responses to my weekly prompts and lots of lovely posts about favourite Irish writers:

It’s been a really busy week, both personally and on the blog and I’m so grateful to everyone who has taken part. There are now a whopping 73 posts in the link up and you can check them all out here.

If you have posted for Reading Ireland Month and I have missed it, do let me know in the comments.

Next week’s prompt is New to my TBR. After over three weeks of Irish-related posts, is there anything that has caught your eye? In a month full of amazing Irish books, which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!

  1. You’ve turned me on to some amazing authors, as always. Love discovering new authors that I’ll continue to follow! Celebrated my birthday this week and of course in the states we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, so it’s been a fun week here. I see you’ve had a good week as well. Slainte!

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.
