On the shelf: September 2020

On average, I read a book a week. Unsurprisingly, my favourite genre is crime and I try to keep up with the latest psychological thrillers as they are published. However, I have broad tastes and also like literary fiction, ‘chick-lit’, book club fiction, fantasy and YA. I am less keen on historical fiction although I do read it.

My favourite authors are Khaled Hosseini, Tracy Chevalier and Emily Barr, and I will read pretty much anything by Cara Hunter, Ruth Ware, Shari Lapena and C L Taylor.

In August, I read:

  • My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
  • Knife by Jo Nesbo
  • Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
  • Hell Bay by Kate Rhodes

My favourite of these was Knife by Jo Nesbo. His books are pretty violent, but they are full of story and Harry Hole is such a good character. I have read almost all of Nesbo’s books. If you’re new to this Norwegian writer, I would start with The Snowman or The Redeemer.  

In September, I plan to read:

  • The Lost Man by Jane Harper
  • We Know You Know by Erin Kelly
  • The Taking of Annie Thorne by C J Tudor
  • Black River by Will Dean

What are you reading? Any recommendations?
