Last month I participated in “Reading Ireland Month“!
I read 5 titles that are set in Ireland/written by Irish authors.
- The Old Jest by Jennifer Johnston
- Secrets we keep by Faith Hogan
- The stolen child by Lisa Carey
- Out of the blue by Gretta Mulrooney
- Controlled explosions by Claire McGowan
I also featured an Irish themed post in “Series I started and would love to finish” blog series featuring Erin Hart’s Nora Gavin mysteries.
For more “Reading Ireland” posts see the Twitter hastags: #readireland17 and/or #begorrathon17
I meant to read more Irish fiction but ran out of time as I also took part in two blog tours this past month.
- “Wilde Lake” by Laura Lippman
2. “Duplicity” by Jane Haseldine
Over the past month I have received two new titles from NetGalley
Despite my best intentions to not request from NetGalley until my review queue is under control (128 titles), I HAD to request this one on the strength of how much I loved Eve Chase‘s last novel. See my review of “Black Rabbit Hall“.
Just between you and me, I MUCH prefer the United Kingdom cover with a slightly different title. Which is YOUR favorite?
The second title from NetGalley, “Persons Unknown” is the second installment in the fabulous Susie Steiner’s series featuring Manon Bradshaw. The first book in the series, “Missing, persumed” was a favorite of mine last year.
That’s six more review commitments!
Anyone who says that book reviews don’t sell books are very misinformed. I read a glowing review by fellow bookblogger, Renee from “It’s Book Talk“, and immediately purchased the novel in Kindle format.
and thanks to a post by Cleo (Cleopatra loves Books),
I bought this one on Kindle as well!
and I also purchased the following Kindle books (prices listed under bookcover):
So…. that’s me. April all planned out. But you know what they say about the best laid plans. LOL Happy reading!
