Welcome to my bookshelf! I’m making inroads on my “to be read” pile – which is constantly accumulating while I write – and thought I’d scribble down some thoughts as I go.
I mostly read literary and women’s fiction, crime, thrillers and mystery. I love supporting authors (especially debut authors) by reading advanced reading copies in exchange for honest reviews.
Other than that, there’s not much rhyme or reason to my choices. Recent hit or classic, popular bestseller or quirky, it’s just whatever I fancy reading. Nevertheless, I hope you’ll find a recommendation or two here.
