In which I read some books, watched some TV and generally avoided the interchoobs.
I didn’t read as much as I wanted this month mainly because I discovered this TV show called Lost Girl, and I decided to marathon my way through seasons one to three.
I did however have a bit of a back catalogue catch up, with One Last Breath, The Dead Place and Scared to Live by Stephen Booth. I had a bit of a giggle with Something Borrowed by Paul Magrs and Mrs Fry’s Diary by Mrs Stephen Fry. I fed need for generic pap with Tick Tock, and Second Honeymoon by a couple of James Patterson’s herd of writers, and I gave myself a thrill with Stay Close by Harlan Coben and The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton.
I finished the year with a not insubstantial total of 124 books read, and in no particular order here are my top ten books from that list.

Let’s start all over again in the morning shall we?
Is the hell mouth really in Whitby?
Whether you prefer classics, sci-fi, horror, or detective novels, I can guarantee you that you’ll find something that you like in this deliciously different book.
