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?
