Book List 2019

I’ve always been a reader. My love of books has been there since I was a child. However, sometimes life can get in the way and I don’t read near as much as I want to. This year, one of my new year’s resolutions is to read 25 books by 31st December 2019. I’m currently on book 22 – When All Is Said by Anne Griffin.


To help with my reading challenge, I joined The Rick O’Shea Book Club. Last year, this online book club raised over €51,000 in aid of the Peter McVerry Trust who work to help those who need the most support in the middle of Ireland’s homelessness crisis.

I’ve made my donation of €10, will you do it too? Donate Now!

The below list will be updated throughout the year.

In terms of audio books, I highly recommend Audible as an app to use. They offer a 30 day free trial and various offers including credits for free books. After 30 days you will be charged automatically for a subscription – just a note of warning if you notice an unplanned deduction in your account.

My top three recommendations on Aubile are:
1. Becoming
2. West Cork
3. Then She Was Gone

And if you don’t trust me, here are 50 audiobook recommendations from The Irish Times.
