St. Paddy's Day musts! 6 books that will put you in the Irish spirit

 
 
St. Patrick’s Day is crazy close (just a little over a week!) and we’re so antsy for the holiday that we may already be decked out head to toe in shamrocks...oops. But if you have a little more patience than all of us at GL, you can save the four-leaf-clover earrings and your cutesy green headband for the March 17 festivities. These Irish-themed books will do more than enough to put you in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit without all the green garb.

    The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

    Tamara Goodwin is a glamorous Dublin girl without a worry in the world. That is until she gets uprooted from her brilliant life in the city to a slightly less fab one in the country. Tamara is feeling pretty down when a travelling library shows up in her village and brings an old—but ordinary—looking leather bound book. She’s shocked when she discovers the magic and mystery that pours out of its pages, proving that you really can’t judge a book by its cover.

    P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

    We all know and love the movie starring Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler, but did you know the flick is based on this book? The novel by Cecelia Ahern follows Holly, an Irish woman who has recently lost her husband due to a terminal illness. She expected that her husband would pass away, but what she did not expect was the monthly letters he would leave for her after he was gone. This one might be a tearjerker, but it’s definitely a worthy read.
