New On My Shelf This Week

Say Hello! to Goodreads Giveaway win #15, Killing Ways by Alex Barclay, a lovely paperback edition, with an amazing cover which looks much better in real life!

Whilst researching as much as I could about Alex, I came across a radio interview she gave a couple of years ago. After listening to her discussing one of the earlier books in the Ren Bryce series, I came to the conclusion that the back story may be so strong, that I might really need to go back and read the series in sequence.

Some of the amazing reviewers have however, indicated that the stories do work okay as stand alones, so I am going to dive right in and give this one a try 🙂

KILLING WAYS‘ (Ren Bryce, #5)

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
