$25 Amazon/PP-WW-Leaping Leprechauns & Frolicking Fairies Hop-Ends 3/24

Monday, March 17, 2014


Ginny from Gin's Book Notes, and Candace from Candace's Book Blog, are excited to host Leaping Leprechauns & Frolicking Fairies: The All Things Irish Blog Hop, running March 17th-24th. This hop is to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and giveaway some goodies to all our wonderful readers! I decided that Miki's Hope would take part in this.

Everyone is a tiny bit Irish on St. Patrick's Day So whether you wear the green, head for the nearest Pub, go attend the St. Patrick's Day parade near where you live or decide to make Corned Beef and Cabbage with Boiled Potatoes and Irish Soda Bread smothered in Irish Butter (which is delicious if you have never tried it)--you will need a bit of the "Leprechaun's Pot" in your pocket!


Do you think the "Luck of the Irish" is with you? $25.00 Amazon or Paypal (WW) will be given to one lucky reader of Miki's Hope. All you have to do is fill up the short rafflecopter form for a chance to win. And once you are finished here--go see what the other participants are offering on their blogs!

Jackie said...

I can't recall any books with Irish themes. The last book I read was The Fault in Our Stars.

Yvonne Woodstock said...

I haven't read this book BUT it sounds like "MY" kind of book and I think I would really enjoy it. Also out of 170 readers reviews it has 4 1/2 out of 5 stars so that makes me think even more so it would be a good book. I only enjoy NON fiction books which is another reason I like the sounds of this one.

It is :
ANGELS IN MY HAIR by Lorna Byrne (The True Story of a Modern Day Irish Mystic)

I love everything by Marian Keyes and Cecelia Ahern, and both of them are Irish so most of their books are set in Ireland :)

Any of the Frank McCourt books--I especially loved Angela's Ashes, but "'Tis" and "Teacher Man" were good, too. He also wrote a children's book called "Angela and the Baby Jesus". :o)

Saralisa Helleberg said...

I associate fairy books with Ireland, and I have read a LOT of fairy books. Two of my favorites are The Faerie Path by Allan Frewin Jones and This Scepter'd Isle by Mercedes Lackey. I would say the first one is more of a children's book, while the second is more of an adult book. :)

Ginny Gallagher said...

I just finished Kiss Me I'm Irish by Bella Street. ( I think it is FREE on Amazon today)--Mauve Binchy has great books set in Ireland and Nora Roberts has several Trilogies set in Ireland.
