Book Blogger Hop – What was your favourite genre to read as a child?

Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop! Hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer this week the prompt is:

What was your favourite genre to read as a child? Do you still read that genre, or do you read something else now? (submitted by Mark @ Carstairs Considers)

Fantasy was my go to genre when I was younger. I didn’t realise it at the time, I just liked books with magic in them! Later it was Murder Mystery/Thriller.

These days I try to mix my reading up and have actually read a fair amount of Romance with the odd Historical Fiction thrown in. So for the second part of the question I would have to say that I mainly read other things, but I am a fan of ACOTAR.

What about you?

Book of the Month – My Favourite Book Of January 2023

Random Things Tours – Book Review – Promise Me by Jill Mansell

Book Description fom Goodreads:

“One minute Lou is happily employed, with a perfect flat. The next, her home and job have gone. Suddenly she has to start over.

The last thing Lou wants is to move to a tiny Cotswolds village. She certainly doesn’t intend to work for curmudgeonly eighty-year-old Edgar Allsopp. But Edgar is about to make her the kind of promise nobody could ignore. In return, she secretly vows to help him fall in love with life again.

Foxwell is also home to Remy, whose charm and charisma are proving hard to ignore. But Lou hasn’t recovered from the last time she fell for a charmer. She needs a distraction – and luckily one’s about to turn up.

Secrets never stay hidden for long in Foxwell, nor are promises always kept. And no one could guess what lies ahead…”

I loved this book – what more can I say?!

Happy Publication Day! Death and the Conjuror by Tom Mead

Book Description From Goodreads:

A magician-turned-sleuth in pre-war London solves three impossible crimes.

In 1930s London, celebrity psychiatrist Anselm Rees is discovered dead in his locked study, and there seems to be no way that a killer could have escaped unseen. There are no clues, no witnesses, and no evidence of the murder weapon. Stumped by the confounding scene, the Scotland Yard detective on the case calls on retired stage-magician-turned-part-time-sleuth Joseph Spector. Who better to make sense of the impossible than one who traffics in illusions?

Spector has a knack for explaining the inexplicable, but even he finds that there is more to this mystery than meets the eye. As he and the Inspector interview the colorful cast of suspects among the psychiatrist’s patients and household, they uncover no shortage of dark secrets—or motives for murder. When the investigation dovetails into that of an apparently impossible theft, the detectives consider the possibility that the two transgressions are related. And when a second murder occurs, this time in an impenetrable elevator, they realize that the crime wave will become even deadlier unless they can catch the culprit soon.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 8 February 2023 so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Goodreads, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

Sunday Post – Hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer

What else has been happening this week:

It was my son’s first Staff Development Day on Friday which meant that as a student he had a day off. To keep him entertained my parents and I took him to the beach! Yes, it was very cold, and everything except the fish and chip shop and amusement arcade was closed because it was off season, but it was a great day out! We wrapped up warm and wore wellies so that we could paddle in the sea! Saturday my son and I had our hair cut (I also had mine coloured!) as it hadn’t been done since July (?) so needed doing. Today we will be going bird watching at a local winery near us that allows you to walk around the vineyard, orchard and woodland, for our son’s homework.

I hope that you have had a lovely week!

(Pictures to follow!)
