It’s a mix of old and new crime this month as my novels originate from both this century and the last. I love seeing the contrast between how crimes are solved with modern-day technology and increasingly complex and crafty plots, with the simpler stuff from middle to late 1900s where the genius of the protagonist is what really helps them catch the killer. There is no one style that’s better than the other, but simply a progression in the way that they’re written.
It’s a very slim selection for March’s reading list thanks to the release of Breath of the Wild at the beginning of the month. Between playing that and maintaining this blog, there’s admittedly not been a great deal of free time for me recently, but that’s okay. Although I only made it to the end of one book, it was a good’un.
It’s the beginning of another month which means it’s time for me to look back at the books I’ve read over the last few weeks and give you all my thoughts on them. I didn’t found the time to read as much as I would have liked in February, but I’ve still got a couple of great books here to talk about. Besides, it’s always about quality over quantity.
After failing to follow through with my plan to post about the books I was reading last year, I’ve come back to revive this segment – new year, new me style.
I love reading, but I know that I never read as much as I should do. My bookcase is crammed full of unread books that I’ve been meaning to get through for ages, and with some of my Christmas presents now adding to the collection, it seemed about time that I made my way through them.
After spending several years having to read for the sake of education, this summer has been a great opportunity for me to remember what it’s like to read for fun.
