So here's a little about me....
I just love reading (surprise, surprise!) & I also love to buy books - I can't resist charity shops & library sales so many of the books on my shelf are for releasing rather than reading - I like to send books travelling. This means my shelf doesn't really reflect my taste, my reading list is a better indication of my reading habits & anything that piques my interest goes on my wishlist. I do love a good grisly murder! - especially where the main characters are mavericks, outsiders or just plain off-the-wall & can highly recommend the following series:

Jack Reacher (Lee Child) - Tom Thorne (Mark Billingham) - Charlie Parker (John Connolly) - Charlie Priest (Stuart Pawson) - Peter "Mad Max" Maxwell (M.J. Trow) - Jack Caffery (Mo Hayder) - Roy Grace (Peter James) - Archie Sheridan (Chelsea Cain) - Jackson Brodie (Kate Atkinson) - Kevin Byrne & Jessica Balzano (Richard Montanari) - Logan McRae (Stuart MacBride)- Harry Hole (Jo Nesbo)

IF YOU NEED A HINT OF WHAT I LIKE.....
Books are always welcome!
It doesn't have to be one from my wishlist - any gritty, gory crime thriller or anything spooky not already on my shelf would be happily received
as would any of Graham Masterton's horror novels that's not already in my Permanent Collection. I also love tales of folklore, as well as puzzle/crossword/quiz books that will keep me quietly occupied :o)

I will try anything edible!
I like milk chocolate (esp Galaxy, praline/truffles), love liquorice
& have a serious addiction to Lion's Midget Gems
(although any wine gum type sweet will be happily devoured)

Stationery & Bookcrossing supplies are always welcome, either store or home made.
I love notebooks that are fabric covered, stitched or created with handmade paper - in fact, anything handcrafted,
like bookmarks, that you've taken the time to make yourself is much appreciated.
….or maybe just a little something completely random that will make me smile :o)
