My book blog

I’ll read most things, depending on my mood. Lately I’ve been reading a lot of YA, adult thrillers and literary fiction: for dark teen issues, you can’t go wrong with anything by Laurie Halse Anderson; for literary fiction, my favourite is The Secret History by Donna Tartt – she writes characters that stay with you long after you finish her books; if I want comfort reading, I’ll read To Kill A Mockingbird or any Jane Austen; and no one can scare me as much as Stephen King or unsettle me as much as Gillian Flynn. I don’t have favourites – I’m always searching for authors who are able to nail a feeling or a point in my life so succinctly that I wince or flinch. Writers like Ian McEwan, Anne Enright, and Lionel Shriver are great examples. Click on the books for my review.
