Book Haul – Christmas Day

As bookworms, we all hope that we’ll get books on Christmas Day. I didn’t think I’d get many from the conversations dropped by various family members. However, I managed to walk away from Christmas with a total of 10 books. So far, I have read 1 of them and am currently halfway through another (this…

Black Friday Book Haul

I got 10 books in the Black Friday sale. None of these books are on any of my Christmas lists, I was very careful not to buy any that might be gifted later in the year. They are all crime/thriller books. I didn’t really spend any money either. £24.00 for 10 books. Gotta love a…

November Roundup

I kind of failed this month. I’m used to reading 10+ books a month, usually ending up closer to 20 reads. I didn’t even pass 10 book this month. I ended up only reading 5. I mean, 5 is good but I still feel like a failure for not reading more. November has been pretty…

A Growing Crime Obsession

My obsession with crime started when I was a teenager and first started watching CSI with my Mum. From those first CSI episodes, I then started watching all the spin-off series, moved to NCIS, watched all those spin-off series, discovered Bones and my television obsession was complete. My Mum has always loved crime fiction, but…
