Irish Above All | Mary Pat Kelly

“Had remained Irish above all.”
Galway Bay pictured above,where the Kelly‘s hailed from.
Of note:in Acknowledgements,the author thanks”my sister -in-law Martha Hall Kelly”among others,as a “great supporter(s).”Wondering if her sister-in-law is the same Martha Hall Kelly who wrote The Sunflower Sisters.#overbookedclub
From what I can gather,Martha Hall Kelly is married to Mary Pat Kelly‘s brother,Michael.Wild coincidence!

kspenmoll I think I may want to read Galway Bay now, the first book in this saga. 6d
megnews Wow! That is a wild coincidence! 6d
Librarybelle I did not know of the family connection! 6d

Herland: Easyread Comfort Edition | Charlotte Perkins Gilman
post image

I forced my way through to the end. I can admit that there are some elements of this that are interesting, but it is bizarre to me that the entire story of this matriarchal utopia is told from the POV of a male explorer who stumbles upon Herland with two other men. I neither enjoyed the POV nor the audiobook narrator and I was bored. #booked2022 #nonpatriarchalsociety

marleed I wonder what an author intriguing would reveal. I find it interesting when a female author writes about women from the perspective of a male character, and always wonder why they chose to write that way. I think it worked in the tagged. 2w
PurpleyPumpkin I recall trying to read this in university for a feminist course, but I don‘t think I finished it. I might revisit it someday. Thanks for your review!👍🏽 2w
Cinfhen Great review and thanks for championing through!!!! I would have bailed and marked it as completed 🙈I‘m reading this one with the #LiteraryCrew and @TrishB next month 2w

This tells you the state of my mind. I was into ch 2 of The Moth Catcher & the plot started to feel familiar. OMG I read it only 10 months ago!! 😂🤯
So I started these two books this afternoon. Only got a few pages of preface read of The 1619 Project- so much to reference & take in- plan to start Irish Above All tonight. #1619groupread #literarycrew

Ruthiella 🤣I was reading a Tony Hillermann mystery a few years ago and only realized 1/2 way through that I‘d already read it before! (edited) 3w
Librarybelle Oh boy!!😂 3w
Reggie Lolol 3w
Crazeedi Katherine I picked up a book the other day because it looked going, I think someone gave it to me, started to put it on goodreads and love and behold it popped up that i read it in 2014!! Lol 3w
