March | A Month of Irish Books
Welcome to March! As I’m sure you know St. Patrick’s day is on the 17th of March which means parades, shamrock shakes and permission to break lent for a day (Dairy Milk overdose). For a lot of people it’s an opportunity to throw back a Guinness or ten and get up to some shenanigans but me being me I’ll probably be at home with tea, books and as much Cadbury’s as I can cram into the kitchen cabinets.
I love Ireland and I love being Irish. I love this beautiful country, it’s eclectic and mostly comprehensible accents, riveting history and slightly bonkers folklore. So I will of course be celebrating my country and heritage this month but I’ll be doing it here, on my blog!
I’m dedicating March to reading books by Irish authors, books published in Ireland, books illustrated by Irish artists. If it has an Irish connection, I’m in. I’ve spent the last few weeks planning posts and filling my shelves with a very Irish TBR. I’ll even be reading some books written in Irish, which is going to be quite the challenge seeing as I’m about as rusty as you can get.
I’m really, sincerely excited to jump into March and have a very Irish, very bookish adventure!
