As you can tell from this website, I read a lot. Generally, I only write about the Irish authors here, but I read a lot more than just Irish books. I recently learned about the reading challenge issued by Laura at circleofpinetrees.com, to read a book a month and write about it; so, I decided to take her up on that, and invite others to participate as well. I’ll try to interpret this as one non-Irish book a month, but we’ll see if that sticks.
My first “Year in Books” read is Hild, by Nicola Griffith, which I already finished and loved, so I’ll try to write a review within the next week.
It’s actually a slight cheat, as the clash between early Celtic Christianity and the centralized Roman church is one of the plot’s motivating factors, but it’s an enjoyable virtual visit to the seventh century and I think everyone will enjoy it.
