Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘Top Ten Books That Would Be On Your Syllabus If You Taught X 101.’ I have decided to do Irish YA, as I am always keen to discover and promote Irish writers. It is great to read something that relates to your own place, and there is a lot of talent in Irish children’s and young adult fiction at the moment. This was a hard list to make, but I tried to get a mix of authors and genres. Happy reading!
