Leaping Leprechauns & Frolicking Fairies-The All Things Irish Blog Hop

Welcome to Leaping Leprechauns & Frolicking Fairies – The All Things Irish Blog Hop!

This hop is hosted by Gin’s Book Notes and Candace’s Book Blog, and is a celebration of all things Irish or Fairy-related. Today, Celtic myths are us!

I used to live in Chicago, and every St. Patrick’s Day the city dyes the Chicago River green! This year, the “greening of the river” happened on Saturday, March 15, so that the town could get started on their celebrating early.

green river 1It just feels wrong that St. Patrick’s Day is a Monday this year–this is a holiday that seems almost designed to be a weekend!

But maybe by the actual day you’ll be all celebrated out, and ready to curl up with a good book or two. Here’s where the hop comes in.

I’m giving away a $10 Gift Card from either Amazon or B&N, or for international hoppers, a book from Book Depository up to $10. The winner will be able to make their own little celebration. To enter my hop, just fill out the rafflecopter and tell us your favorite story about the Fae Folk or based on Celtic mythology.

Emma Bull’s War for the Oaks is still one of my favorites. Tell us yours!

Sunday Post

dancing with dragons by lorenda christensenCass is here this week, on the first or second leg (depending on how you count) of her grand cross-country move to New Mexico. She’s moving from the freezing to the melting parts of the U.S. (As they say, at least it’s a dry heat!)

I’m hoping that we’ll get in a dual review of Dancing with Dragons while she’s here (because, well, DRAGONS!). It will be fun (and weird) to do this while we can actually talk to each other, instead of just Google chat. It may go faster this way. It may go LOTS slower if we crack each other up too much.

There are three book giveaways still in progress this week, on paranormal romance, one contemporary/western, and one military/political thriller, plus the mega-tourwide giveaway from Emily Kimelman. Check ’em out!
