ABOUT MEI am a freelance book reviewer who contributes to The Sunday Independent, The Irish Times and LMFM Radio. I'm an English (research) postgrad and a mother of five who escapes into the wonderful world of books. I also contribute writing.ie, booksireland.com and Indulgeme.ie. I am the book guru on LMFM's Late Lunch and co-host bookishpodcast with Bob Johnston of Gutter Bookshop, Dublin. I write freelance articles for magazines and websites and have was on a panel of experts at Wexford Literary Festival and hosted a panel at Kildare Readers Festival. I am also part of the An Post Irish Book Awards Acadamy. My reviews are honest, as I review for readers and not writers or publishers. If the book was received from an author or publisher I will state this in the review. I am also on Facebook at Bleach House Library, twitter @margaretbmadden and and on YouTube, for reviews and author interviews.

Some reviews are featured on the blog, while other are reviewed on LMFM or youtube. Newspaper review titles are assigned by the books editors.
