Book Reviews

You can get the Book Review archive by clicking the link under Blog Themes on the left, but I thought you’d like a list here as well.  It’s in alphabetical order of author surname (I hope).

I am a writer, not a reviewer.  Writers must also be readers, and these are books I have chosen to read.  So my reviews are just my thoughts and opinions.  Quite a few of these books I chose to download free during promotions, or maybe I won them in giveaways.  Some I paid for!  It makes no difference to my reviews.  Occasionally I will take an Advance Review Copy (and say so in the review), but usually only when I’ve read some of the author’s work already and know what to expect.  It still makes no difference to my reviews.  What you get is what I think!

These should all be suitable for my reader age-group (they include books written for adults with nothing unsuitable in them), but if not it should say so at the start.  Of course some are written for younger readers and you may find them more interesting than those written for oldies, since I enjoy detective novels and the occasional thriller.  If you’re not sure whether it’s suitable for you after reading the review, click the link to the book online and read the sample.  I read something that was a bit too adult for my taste and if I’d read the sample first, I’d have realised straight away!
