This year is flying! One of my writing projects finally hit critical mass and I’ve been working for hours each night after the day job. Reorganizing and fine-tuning is infinitely more palatable than drafting. It’s still fun, but this schedule is a road to burnout. Time to read! I’ve only read four books this year, so I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
To participate in Reading Ireland Month 2019 (hosted by Cathy at 746 Books and Raging Fluff), I chose a few books from my queue that were written by Irish authors. Here’s a link to the sign-up page if you’d like to join!
I started reading mid-February so it’s hard to predict how many I’ll finish/review by the end of March. I’m going to try for posts on the 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, and 25th, but can’t predict the order at this point. I picked up Milkman by Anna Burns after it won the 2018 Man Booker Prize, but it’s not an easy read and I don’t think my poor understanding of history is wholly to blame.
I added Are You Somebody? when I saw it on the sign-up page. I don’t usually pick books based on their title, but I liked this one.
The current pile, which I don’t expect to finish!
From past years:
Go sign up and Happy March!!
