Terrific New Bestsellers from Irish Writers

There is an abundance of new Irish writers in the marketplace, each writing in a different genre and all achieving their respective positions among many a TBR and in the bestseller lists. Some have achieved instant notoriety, while other are still looking to be found.

I am going to concentrate on five of the most recent that I have read. Each one is an excellent read and comes with a very positive recommendation.

I hope you enjoy!!

Review : The Difference by Justine Delaney Wilson (@justinedelw )

‘We’re all different.

When Ismae Rogers was born, her difference was just easier to see’

Be prepared to be taken on emotional rollercoaster when reading The Difference. At times it will overwhelm you, but it will also make you think.

The Difference is the debut novel from Justine Delaney Wilson and was released in May 2016 by Hachette Books Ireland. I received my copy from the author in return for my honest review.

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld – A Review

 ‘adj: desirable and worthy of being chosen esp. as a spouse’

Eligible, the latest novel by American Wife writer Curtis Sittenfeld, has been a novel I have waited and wanted to get my hands on since I first heard about it. Eligible is published by Borough Press, an imprint of Harper Collins and was launched on 21st April 2016. I was lucky enough to receive my copy from writing.ie in exchange for an honest review.

My Sewing Update

Small bit of panic now that classes are over and I’m on my own!!!!

I’ve been working on one piece for awhile now but picking up other bits & bobs in fabric shops in the last couple of weeks. I’ve felt a little lost admittedly with no particular guidance so I have decided to allocate every Monday evening as my sewing window at home. I thought I would share a little of what I have been up to 🙂
