I have decided to go back to themed months here, on the blog.
The reasoning behind this is that is actually quite fun to feature some different books and authors and it gives me a chance to spread my wings a little.
Because of recently reading Bad Seeds by Jassy Mackenzie, I have had a crazy urge to read some more crime fiction. So I popped into my local secondhand bookshop yesterday and bought myself a copy of the first JD Robb novel in her epic 45 book series, Naked in Death. I am quite excited about this as it's set in the future and I believe quite romantic too. Who doesn't love a good action-romance, right?
Of course I am worried as, if I like it, it could become quite costly for me. Fortunately, the books are easy to find second-hand!
I also want to read some more of Jassy Mackenzie's Jade de Jong series, as I have only read a couple and would like to get to know Jade better.
I figure it might also be a good time to read a Dresden Files novel or two. Technically, it is crime fiction, even if it is supernatural crime!
There is also Castle to watch, a series I have been dying to see and is finally on ShowMax. It features an author who works closely with the police to solve crimes. That is completely up my alley. Besides, Nathan Fillion is a brilliant actor who makes any character he portrays come to life.
Because of all of the above, it makes sense to have May as Crime Month on the blog!
I will be reviewing all of the above, of course. I also want to do some fun features in between the reviews!
Don't forget to enter in the giveaway to win a copy of Private:Gold! I will also be giving away an awesome US hardback of Bad Seeds! This is where us local readers can get their hands on a copy before it gets released locally! So you definitely want to enter this one!
If you have any reccomendations for shows I need to watch or books I need to read, let me know!
