The blog is wholly devoted to book reviews and bookish memes. I mainly read and review literary, fantasy, Gothic, crime and historical novels.
You’ll find a fair amount of Young Adult novels as a result of my job as a teacher and, as an aspiring crime writer as well, I naturally devour large amounts of crime fiction.
I try to follow the main literary prizes as they publish long- and shortlists: the Booker, Orange and Costa Prizes, as well as the Carnegie medal. I rarely predict accurately!
I like to think that my reviews are honest but fair and informed by a wide experience of reading in a wide range of genres.
