These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.
Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.
Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Peter Grant is back as are Nightingale et al. at the Folly and the various river gods, ghosts and spirits who attached themselves to England's last wizard and the Met's reluctant investigator of all things supernatural.”
It’s not much to go on, but with everything that has happened in the series to date, you know it is going to be a good one. Things are happening. As in, really happening. We’re heading towards answers. Things are becoming apparent. The many layers of the story are interacting in a wonderful way. I need to know what is next. I need to know how it ends (and yet I need the series to continue on forever).
In short, I cannot wait for my next wizarding police officer fix.

Okay, so we have quite a few Deborah Harkness books. It couldn’t be helped, I’m sorry. The All Souls Trilogy blew my mind, hence why all three made the list. Still, there were plenty of other good reads this year.

Someone hold me. I cannot take the excitement. I just won a copy of Dean Koontz’s Ashley Bell in a Goodreads giveaway.
Best early Christmas present ever. I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Seriously, I’m fangirling so hard right now.
I. Won. A. Copy. Of. My. Favourite. Author’s. New. Book.
Excuse me whilst I run screaming around the house.

But despite his conviction, he's always stuck to his story - he's innocent and he's been wrongly imprisoned. And now he wants someone to investigate, and more importantly, to write his story.
At first Maggie, a barrister and true-crime writer, is reluctant to even acknowledge his requests, ignoring his letters. But this is a very charismatic and persuasive man, good-looking and intelligent.
Eventually even she can't resist his lure . . .”
