It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? — 6 Comments

  1. Isn’t Irish history fascinating? (Isn’t Ireland fascinating, for that matter!) I’ve loved your photos, Joy. My husband and I honeymooned there in 1996.

    As for the reading: I just finished SILVER SPARROW by Tayari Jones, a young African-American (woman) writer, about a bigamists’ two families, particularly his daughters, one of whom knows about the other. I’m reading THE ART OF FIELDING now, and so far, I like it. It got mixed reviews–some raves, some very negative–but I learned a long time ago to trust my own reader instincts.

  2. I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Ireland in 2010 and it was amazing. I read Colum McCann’s Let the Great World Spin while there but through my travels I made a list of so many Irish authors to read including Edna O’Brien’s The Country Girls (which is now in my TBR pile) and Flann O’Brien’s At Swim Two Birds (which sounds incredible). You could be a guide after all of your historical reading!
