Welcome to the first of three special posts in the run up to the holiday season! I asked a range of authors that have previously appeared on the site about their Christmas book recommendations. Hopefully these books might help you with your own Christmas shopping gift ideas too! :-)
Q. Is there a smart thinking book that you are looking forward to reading this Christmas, or one you would like to give or receive as a gift?
Marc Mc Menamin
I recommend Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe. It should be compulsory reading in every school and university.
Clare is also launching a new novel called Voting Day soon.
I plan to read and would buy for someone I love Edith Eger - The Gift.
I definitely will be getting Niamh Fitzpatrick’s book Tell me the truth about loss.
I’m looking forward to reading Ireland’s Pirate Trail by Des Ekin, O’Brien press which I picked up on my holidays in Cork this year. A suitably swashbuckling read and all for the more because its focus is on Irish born pirates like Anne Bonny and Granuaile the Pirate Queen.
Huge thanks to Marc, Clare, Fiona, Allison and Grace for their great Christmas book picks!
Watch out next week for Part II of the series with more author recommendations :-)
