Reading Ireland Month: Week Three Round-up!

This month is flying by and as I ease into the final week, here’s a round-up of all your fantastic posts from the last seven days. You really have played a blinder this week!

I was focusing on the short story this week and posted reviews of A Run in the Park by David Park and A Literary Woman by Mary Beckett. I also posted a list of the short story collections from Irish writers scheduled for publication in 2023.

There have been a fantastic number of posts from you all this week:

It’s great to see some love for Brian Moore and I wouldn’t be surprised if Trespasses by Louise Kennedy turns out to be the most reviewed book of the month!

Thanks again to everyone who has posted so far. As always, if I haven’t linked to your review, let me know in the comments. Can’t believe that next week is the final week – I’ll be looking mostly at non-fiction from Irish authors and chatting about a few that got away this month.

  1. I really enjoyed the two I read and am very glad I managed to take part so fully this year (and did two for Dewithon, too, unheard of to do both challenges in one year!). I’m very glad for you that it’s gone so well.
