As I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this blog I do like to read. According to my Goodreads account I read 161 books in 2013 and the majority of them were crime fiction books. I’ve read crime fiction since my early teens and like to discover new authors, old authors, I have authors who I’ve read everything by, foreign authors who I’ve held off from reading as not everything has been translated yet so I can’t read the complete series of books.
If I had to choose five authors who were my favourites then I’d really struggle but I do like Michael Connelly, Ian Rankin, Stuart MacBride, Tony Black, Mark Billingham – oh that’s five right there and I know that as soon as I’ve published this then I’ll think of five more – hang on – Allan Guthrie, Ray Banks, SJ Bolton, Neil White and so on and so on – I love crime fiction and there are literally dozens and dozens and brilliant writers out there.
There are lots of crime fiction blogs out there and Gruffsdad’s bog isn’t going to become a blog based solely around crime fiction – my aim is to witter on about stuff that takes my fancy but also write about the books that I’ve read and if some of you read a review and decide to read the book I’ve read then that will be most excellent. My first review is coming up – be gentle with me.
