A Bookshop Day - My Crime Fiction Haul

I had a fun visit to one of my local book shop today and picked up a few books that i have been wanting for a long time now. I haven’t bought any physical books in a while so it was nice to stroll through the shop and pig out on the shelves until i found what i wanted.

        I have been reading Lee Childs for a while now – not all his books are to my taste but i appreciate is style of writing and he does have a flair for the drama.

I am a big fan of this author and i have read her books from the moment she was published, however a few books back she did what i think is now called “A Karin Slaughter Moment” – she killed off the main protags and lets just say – i was less than forgiving. But when a writer is good, she is good and Ms. Slaughter is right at the top of her game – so i am trying  again to see how i feel after reading this one – it's an independent it’s not apart of the series that she killed off her main protag.. so should be good.I love the cover – I  love a gory read – the bloodier the better and how much bloodier than a knife dripping with blood can you get… the cover is awesome.

Have you bought anything this week. Whether printed or eBooks.

I borrowed The Eyre Affair - Jasper Fforde (may be the first library book I have had in a loooong time). Now I need to read it before it is time to return it:)

I think that is tbr pile is so big..and I have lots of new releases in June and July so I'm trying to be good. Not any fun being good though ;)

I tried to do the library thing - but just the thought of giving back the book book - I have a headache..

Preaching to the crowd about the TBR pile - mine is growling at me..

and i am still buying

I loved Fractured. It was a great book. I just downloaded Until It's Over onto my MP3 from the library. I'm not sure when I'll get to it, so I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Hey Beck..

I find recently that I am going back to crime fiction and alot of suspense romance - I'll let you know what I think.

I am still buying book - i am very much into Lee Child at the moment.

Nicci French. Ohhh, I haven't read any from her in years. Loved the last two I read--can't remember what they're called now. Typical.

Your reading taste is the same as mine, I see.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
