Listless Monday, Luck o' the Irish Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!


This week, once again, I have to thank the yalsa-bk listserv.  While attempting to come up with more than a handful of books involving luck (good or bad) and Ireland, I turned to that trusty librarian source.  They didn't fail.  I have been very loose in my inclusion criteria for Irish or luck books, as I'm sure you can tell.  However, in honor of St. Patrick's Day this week, here they are all mixed in together:
