Keen Kindle reader and ebook reviewer. Contributor to Beyond 100 Drabbles and Is It Her? Author of novels, novellas and short stories in varied genres
Hi I’m Sarah and I LOVE to read. Due to my love of reading I thought I would start my own blog so I could share my thoughts of all the books I read with other readers/bloggers/authors and publishers.
I read many genres of books, new and old. The only ones you may not find me reading many of are fantasy and sci fi as unfortunately they are not my cup of tea.
Now considered something of an expert on psychopaths, thanks to his extensive research and personal experience of people with this personality disorder, Will set up a popular website to help lay readers understand these destructive individuals and why their existence is so important to society in general.
Ever since I can remember I have loved reading, from children’s books to adult’s and everything in between. In the library I always awed at those big shelves, overloaded with so many books in all those colours. They looked like magic to me, captivating and extremely interesting.
I remember going to the library and feeling like a child in magic wonderland. So many books, so much to choose from, the atmosphere, I loved it. At the age of 12, I discovered English books (native Dutch speaker/writer), the first were Agatha Christie’s mysteries.
Dame Agatha Christie has been my life companion ever since, she offers entertainment, brain exercise, insight into the hidden depths of mankind’s psychology and motives as well as adventurous surroundings. I love her characters and insights into human nature.
Reading is my passion and therefore I started this blog, after years of plunging into all sorts of books, from romantic to fiction, classics and literature, with detectives and mystery as my favourites. Must be the influence of Agatha Christie! My interests are widespread: from Agatha Christie to John Irving and the historic literature of Leo Tolstoy. There are many writers I love, like Thomas Hardy and Harry Mulish’s ‘Discovery of Heaven’: a favourite.
Reading feels like discovering new worlds, broadening my horizon and connecting to new characters and writers to love. I am happy to write about the books I have read, the thoughts and intentions of their authors. But I also want to explore books of authors yet unknown to me. As an ardent reader and enthusiastic book blogger, I strive to show my love for reading and my respect for the authors in the reviews I write. I simply love writing about books.
My name is Noelle and I am in my 40’s. I am an avid reader and by that I mean I am never without a book! I am now an ex- Senior Probation Officer having recently left following 17+ years to try something new and exciting. By night I read all things crime!! My fascination for books started at a young age and I truly feel withdrawal symptoms if I am unable to read for a few days hence the name #crimebookjunkie! I am interested in many genres, my faves being Grit Lit, psychological thrillers and all things murder. I do enjoy Police Procedurals and legal/action thrillers as well. I tend to keep away from Chick Lit and Erotica…however, if forced at gun point I may give just about anything a read. I tend to review on Goodreads, Amazon UK and .com, Netgalley, sometimes BookBridgr and share reviews on Twitter/My CBJ facebook page, Facebook via Crime Fiction Addict, Crime Book Club, Book Connectors and other various book clubs I am a member of. I have been fortunate enough to be put on a few Publishers reviewing lists.
Oh..and I am obsessed with my chocolate Lab Buster and gorgeous Tabby cat Pebbles, who sadly passed away in Oct 2015 (RIP Pebs x). I previously had the pleasure of guest reviewing on the former site www.bestcrimebooks.co.uk now known as BCBandMore as the lovely Kat had kindly taken me under her wing whilst my site was under construction. I miss reviewing for her…but thrilled she gave me that nudge!
Here are some pics of my other two obsessions. Meet Buster (my gorgeous, big nosed, loveable 9 years old chocolate lab) & Pebbles (aka “Pebs” the slightly psychotic 17 year old princess tabby who sadly passed away 25/10/2015)
I’m Amy, a busy wife and stay at home mom to three kids who is passionate about reading. Diving into a new novel is one of my favorite ways to escape from reality. Gossiping about novels is my obsession. Whether it’s a book I read in the past, or a upcoming new release from one of my favorite authors, I am always ready to discuss all things book related.
My name is Susan Hampson but friends call me Sue so I hope that is the name you will know me by.
I have always had a love of reading but it did escalate once I was bought a kindle. I read and listen to about 4 or 5 books per week but it is only over this last 18 months that I have realised how important reviewing is to other fellow readers and to authors. I believe over time that my reviews have improved same as anything else you do regular. If I like an author’s books I tend to buy everything they write, I never use unlimited on Amazon as I am a keeper of books and would hate to return them. I always respect that an author has spent months and months to produce a novel and I won’t after just taking a night to read it put up a terrible review. I would contact an author or publisher and say this novel isn’t for me. It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with it but I have chosen badly.
I am not perfect, I never have been. I’m the one as a child that always walked into lamp posts and fell over. Mum tried to help and used to put me plasters on my knees before I went out to save me the trouble of coming back in. I have 5 grown up children and nine grandchildren all which seem to have taken after me bless ’em to the extent that they have set up a joint chat page called Mum’s bad Genes!
I love reading, I always have but my punctuation and grammar aren’t the best but I do know a good book when I read it. That is what I review on the story.
I do reviews on Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Goodreads, NetGalley, Twitter with links to the publisher and author and for independent authors.
I love lots of genres Criminal Procedural, Mystery & Thrillers, Horror, Romance, Erotica and Fantasy. I do like variety. Feel free to contact me for further information anytime on email: firstname.lastname@example.org
