Brains Behind Books – My Favourite Keyes

Marian Keyes

As you know probably already know, from me blathering on about her in the past, I am quite a fan of Marian Keyes. Not only is she Irish, hilarious and warm she has also been incredibly honest about her personal struggles in life, which makes me feel a little less crazy and a little more understood.

Marian’s books that I have read:

Watermelon – Published 1995

Rachel’s Holiday – Published 1998

Anybody Out There? – Published 2006

Angels – Published 2003

The Mystery of Mercy Close – Published 2012

The Brightest Star in the Sky – Published 2009

This Charming Man – Published 2008

The Other Side of the Story – Published 2004

Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married – Published 1996

Saved by Cake – Published 2012 – Marian’s new cookbook which explains all about how she struggled with depression and baked herself better.

My Reviews:

Helen’s Side of the Story

Rachel’s Holiday

To Read:

Under the Duvet – Published 2001

Further Under the Duvet – Published 2005

Sushi for Beginners – Published 2000

Last Chance Saloon – Published 1999

Mammy Walsh’s A-Z of the Walsh Family

My Favourite Book:

Rachel’s Holiday and The Brightest Star in the Sky – I think I am allowed two as it is only fair I have one favourite Walsh sister novel and one favourite from Keyes’ other novels.
