About My Library
Never big enough and always adding to my TBR pile. I even have a book shed to store all my overflowing books. I'm trying to add my TBR books but it is a mammoth task. I'll get there eventually, Lol!

My favourite genres are memoirs of 'ordinary' folk, gothic faery tales, urban fantasy, books about books and anything that is Gypsy related. I aslo love a gripping crime thriller but I am hard to please in that genre.

My Top Ten for 2009 after much deliberations are as follows -
1 The Crying Tree - Naseem Rakha
2 The Story of Edgar Sawtelle - David Wroblewski
3 The Changeling - Terri Windling
4 The Secret Scripture - Sebastian Barry
5 The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox - Maggie O'Farrell
6 Once Upon a Time in England - Helen Walsh
7 The Rapture - Liz Jensen
8 The Tin-Kin - Eleanor Thom
9 Under This Unbroken Sky - Shandi Mitchell
10 The Onion Girl - Charles de Lint
About Me
I love to receive ARCs so I can read and review them before they hit the stores. I find some readers prefer to hear the thoughts from amateur reviewers - I know I do. I also enjoy reading and reviewing books from debut authors.

I work in a silver jewellery store and can be found reading during quiet moments.

Please click on my map so I can see where you are from. I'm just so nosey! Lol!
