Happy #StPatricksDay! Today is perfect for celebrating two of my favorite books set in #Ireland, both part of Marian Keyes' Walsh Family series. Which ones have you read, Littens? Are my two favorites in the series the same as yours? #WindsOfMarch #LitsySpringBreak

rubyslippersreads 💚💚💚 Marian Keyes! My favorite is 2y
Jessieleah I love Marian Keyes! Watermelon was my first and probably still my favourite. Today in fact I just started 2y
Andrea313 @rubyslippersreads Yes, I love that one, too! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Andrea313 @Jessieleah Both of those are so good! Anna's story is ultimately uplifting, but damn if it doesn't break my heart every time. I love seeing the relationship between Claire and Kate in Mercy Close; really brings Watermelon full circle! 2y
TheKidUpstairs I've never read any! One of those authors I've always been meaning to read. 2y

I love Marian Keyes. While on the face of it her books might appear to be your typical fluffy chick lit, they actually include characters with addiction, alcoholism, depression and mental health issues—in other words, there‘s reality inside the pages of these chick books. And she manages to make it all laugh-out-loud funny as well.

andrew61 I have heard her talk several times on podcasts and she is very interesting with a dramatic life, but I've never read her books, i quite fancy trying her, which would you suggest first? 4y
Amiable @andrew61 I‘d start with book #1 in the “Walsh family” series: 4y
andrew61 @Amiable thanks - I'll have a look in the library soon. 4y

I adore Marian Keyes - she‘s witty, she‘s funny, and yet there‘s an underlying darkness that she tackles in each book. While I‘ve yet to read this one, it features one of the whacky Walsh family members. Helen decides to help an ex find a missing singer. But, she comes face to face with some demons of her own as the case evolves. #BuildingAMystery #TimbitTunes

Lauram Wow! I remember buying lots of her books to read on trains while traveling through England. I‘m definitely stacking this one. 4y
TheKidUpstairs Interesting, I've always thought of Keyes as fluffy chick lit, I didn't realize she had a darker side. 4y
Cinfhen Same @TheKidUpstairs I had her in the Sophie Kinsella box 4y
Librarybelle @TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen She has the chick lit element, but each of the books I‘ve read by her also have a darker element - abandonment, sudden death. I started reading her during the chick lit craze, so yeah, definitely marketed toward that genre. This one sounds like it could be slightly darker. Maybe Kinsella with more meat? 4y
Cinfhen That‘s a great hashtag 😂😂#KinsellaWithMoreMeat 4y

monkeygirlsmama @rubyslippersreads I don't remember for sure which ones I've read as I had a bunch of paperbacks that I didn't get read before I moved. The first Keyes I read and recall really liking though was 5y
Andrea313 I really liked this one! Enjoy! 5y
rubyslippersreads @monkeygirlsmama @Kalalalatja I've read those two and enjoyed them. I have to figure out the correct order for the Walsh family books and read those. Plus I think she has a new book coming out soon. 😀 5y
Kalalalatja Oh all the Walsh books! I want to reread them all more and more now 😄😄 5y
Bookcation74 I was just thinking Marian Keyes is due for a new one soon! Google says a September release in the U.K., couldn't find a US date... 5y
