Welcome!

Me Before You

in
A lovely literary chick-lit type of read, but with an extraordinary amount of feeling and sense, and a very unusual theme (the right to your own death). Heartily recommended!

Casket of Souls

in
A new Alec & Seregil adventure. I don't read as much fantasy as I used to but I always read a new Lynn Flewelling! You get drawn into the story at once.

Kingdom Beyond the Waves

in
A high-speed adventure with interesting characters (steammen, an ancient hive mind, half man half lizard creatures, a cyborg vigilante, a archeology professor, female free fighters on steroids and more) that goes on a quest to find the ruins of a lost utopia. It is also filled with different kinds of worshipping, politics, revenge and philosophy and I'm glad to have joined this (steampunk) ride.

A Foreign Country

in
Charles Cumming is simply the best of the new generation of English spy novelists. This was riveting. Great read.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn

If you prefer your thrillers dark and literary with a big side order of intricate twists and achingly real characters, but have yet to read a book by Gillian Flynn, I have one word for you. Congratulations! See, it is my firm belief - and I have the likes of Stephen King on my side here - that contemporary crime just doesn't get any better than Flynn. Her first two novels, Sharp Objects and Dark Places, are not only two of the best crime novels I've read this decade - but also two of the best books, full stop. Now, do I have your attention?
