Saying Goodbye to Reading Ireland Month ’22

This year I almost didn’t run Reading Ireland Month, as a long bout of Covid at the start of the year and a busy schedule meant that I knew I couldn’t devote as much time as usual to it, but I’m so glad I did.

I still took it easy and didn’t push myself to review my usual three books a week throughout March, but you all rallied round and made it one of the most successful years yet!

There have been a whopping 109 posts this month for Reading Ireland Month and for each and every one I am incredibly grateful. Thanks to everyone who took part and made it such a brilliant month.

I didn’t manange to post anything this week, but there were a few more reviews:

Four Letters of Love by Niall Williams – Brona at This Reading Life

The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney – The Book Place on Instagram

Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney – Lara Maynard on Instagram

Reapers of Justice by Anne Freehill – Sarah at The Old Shelter

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney – Roisin at The Resting Willow

Snow by John Banville – Karen at Booker Talk

The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry – Julia at Julia’s Books

One by One in the Darkness by Deirdre Madden – Susanna at A Bag Full of Books

Erskine, O’Farrell, Quinn and Toibin – Rebecca at Bookish Beck

Good Behaviour by Molly Keane – Rosemary at Scones and Chaise Longues


You can check out all the related posts here and once again, thanks to everyone wh posted, tweeted, retweeted, commented and generally made March another great month of reading and blogging!

  1. Thank you so much for doing this Cathy – I have literally only just posted mine, sorry. Now I’m going to see what other people thought of Good Behaviour – which I loved.

  2. I had great plans for Reading Ireland, but being away and ARCs, meant I didn’t get to the books I wanted. I am glad it was successful. I hope you are feeling better, Cathy. Take time to recuperate completely.

  3. Thanks for hosting this again. I thoroughly enjoyed what I read, and managed to buy myself a copy of These Days which didn’t arrive in time to read at the end of the month but I might read in April instead.

  4. I’m glad you did go ahead with this year’s event even though I didn’t contribute as much as I’d hoped. It did give me a nudge to read Strange Flowers by Donal Ryan which I loved (haven’t had time to do the review yet sorry)

  5. Well done! It’s been lovely to see all the reviews on the blogs I follow and I’m glad you’ve had so many join in. Maybe next year will be a Ireland and not a Wales year for me …

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.
