Reading Ireland Month

Reading Ireland Month is being run by by Cathy746Books and The Fluff is Raging and is affectionately known as the Begorrathon. This month, bloggers unite to read and review a range of Irish literature, film and music in celebration of Irish culture! What better way to spend St Patrick’s Day (and month!) than having a great time with Irish lit?

I discovered that I have quite a bit more Irish lit than I first thought I did. I have a few reviews ready to go of Irish books I have read before, but will also be reading some of the Irish novels waiting for me on my shelves!

This month, I’m hoping to read:

The Heather Blazing by Colm Toibin

Brooklyn by Colm Toibin

The Tain

When Sorrows Come by Matt McGuire

The Portable Virgin by Anne Enright

De Profundis by Oscar Wilde

I’m going to keep my reading list short, since March is a busy month for me, but I think this number of books is achievable. I’ve been having a tough time saving some of these until March, so saying I’m excited is an understatement. I have a few more ready if I exceed my expectations!

I will also be uploading a few reviews of books, plays and poetry that I’ve read in the past, because we need to get the Irish lit spread around! There’s some fantastic work about and I’m so excited to be involved!

Are you going to be joining in? Let me know and I’ll keep an extra eye out for your posts!
