TGIF

I missed out last week, being away visiting the in-laws but it's back to normal this week! I've had quite a busy couple of weeks on the book front, since last time I read and reviewed...


Beta by Stephen Brayton which introduces a new female PI
Matter of Faith by Brent Craig, a legal thriller
Powder Dreams by David Ward-Nanney, contemporary fiction
Hostile Witness by Rebecca Forster, another crime tale
What Smiled at Him by Colin Dodd, about two friends questionning their lives
When the River has Run by Lars Harssan, fantasy and
Infinite Sacrifice by L E Waters, historical fiction with an unusual twist


I also completed a book yesterday which I will try and post a review on tonight.


Over at GReads the TGIF question is:


A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?

I'd written the odd review before getting my Kindle, but once I got that and started getting active on Amazon's Kindle forum I realised how important reviews can be to new authors. An author who was active on the forums suggested it was a good way to support an author if you enjoyed their books, and that the natural progression from writing reviews on there was to start a blog. I'd never blogged before so started looking at some for inspiration and figured it was something I could do and would enjoy. I'm definitely the sort of person who likes to share their opinions and most of my friends and family have no interest in hearing about what I've been reading. The blog has definitely progressed in an organic kind of way as I've made tweaks and I've no doubt it'll keep changing.

Time to run, off to the library soon with the monkey so I best look lively! Have a great weekend everyone.
