Bookworm with Kids I realise that this is a bit early for the nominations and poll but I will be away next week for a few weeks and won't have access to the Internet, except sporadically.

Barbara (bdegar) | 4626 comments I'd like to nominate The Uninvited (Recovered Voices) by Dorothy Macardle. It's available on Kindle, from Kennys, The Book Depository, and Amazon US. It has been republished by Tramp Press, the indie publisher that published Solar Bones.

Ryan | 2 comments I would like to nominate "A Different Familiar" by Rhian J. Martin. Set in contemporary Galway, the story follows a group of university students, mostly Irish but some from America, who encounter the city of Galway in varying ways and experience struggles and joys as they adapt to university life. The book is available on Kindle, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble online. Thanks!

Bookworm with Kids Thanks, Susan!

Clare O'Beara | 151 comments I do not have an Irish book lined up at present but I'll keep it in mind. Enjoy your trip!

Carol Bee | 44 comments If anyone is looking for an Irish Author and Book I was surprised to discover that Graham Norton has written a Book called “Holding” which is set in south west. It’s a detective story about missing people and bodies found of people who had been missing for 20 years. I’ve not finished it yet so I’m only putting it out there as an Irish read. I am enjoying it at a third into it.

Bookworm with Kids Here is the link to Holding by Graham Norton.

Bookworm with Kids Any seconders for our nominated books so far?

Lorraine | 152 comments I'll second The Uninvited. I've been tempted to buy her books for awhile. It might be a good, creepy read.

Bookworm with Kids Thanks Lorraine. I will second Holding. Anyone to second A Different Familiar?
