About Me

An Overflowing Bookcase is the blog of me, Marie O’Neill. I’m a 20-something year old, living and working in Dublin.

When I’m not working, running or wrestling my 3-year-old daughter into submission, you will probably find me reading, knitting, sewing or lying down somewhere in exhaustion.

This blog is somewhere for me to set myself reading challenges. Whether it’s to read all of the titles longlisted or shortlisted for a particular award, or to read every book on those ‘books to read before you die’ lists, I’m hoping that the challenges will force me out of my comfort zone and encourage me to try books I might not otherwise have looked at.
