Great Reads! Books We’ve Been Reading

I realised I have been a bit quiet lately and I haven’t really posted a lot about what I’ve been reading. What better excuse do I need to rave about all the wonderful books my book crazy colleagues and I have been devouring over the last month or so?

I have steadily been working my way through all the titles I mentioned in my ‘Coming Soon! Books I can’t Wait to Read’ post and thoroughly enjoying all of them. No surprise there as they are authors I have enjoyed in the past.

However, I have also discovered some new authors which is always exciting! Not to mention that when I see what my colleagues have been reading and enjoying I end up with even more books on my list. There really aren’t enough hours in the day to fit in all the amazing books I want to read, especially when I have to fit in my crafting time as well (look out for an upcoming post on my crafting exploits and the craft books I can’t seem to stop borrowing).

I hope you discover something new to read from this list, there’s sure to be something for everyone!

Happy Reading

Thrillers to Curl Up with!

This July, I am going to be exploring some of the thriller titles I have been steadily adding to my TBR pile over the last few months.

I don’t tend to read thriller books all the time, rather I have spurts when I read a few, then don’t pick up another one for six months. Coincidently it always seems like it is around the middle of the year, maybe it is the colder weather!

By no means do I consider myself an expert in recommending thriller titles, so while I have listed some titles I am looking forward to reading. I also enlisted the help of some of our Library’s resident ‘thriller’ aficionados! who have kindly contributed some of their all-time-favourite titles.

I am sure there will be something for everyone to read, from first timers to hard-core fans!

Happy Reading!
