Welcome to my Book Blog
I am an avid reader and can get through two or three books a week – more when I’m on holiday.
I enjoy a range of different genres: modern, historical, thrillers, family sagas, mysteries, biographies and travel writing. The vast majority of my reading is crime fiction and I have enjoyed stories set in the UK, the United States, Scandinavia, Europe, China and Australia to name but a few.
People often ask me for book recommendations and in the past I have shared lists of my favourites with lots of different friends and colleagues. I find it increasingly difficult to remember what I’ve recommended to each person so I’ve started this Blog where friends can read my summaries of some of my all-time favourites and what books I’ve been enjoying recently.
I sometimes find it difficult when I find a new author to identify the correct order of a series of books, particularly in crime fiction. Where the books are part of a series, I've listed the books in order and noted which one is my (current) favourite.
I’d love to feature contributions from guest bloggers – so if you’d like to write a brief description of a book you’ve enjoyed and send it to me, I’ll publish these too.
