About Me

My love affair with books, like most, started at an early age and is never ending. My book reading preferences have changed over the years and I look forward to sharing my varied reading tastes with you. You will find a lot of Crime Fiction (a penchant for Scottish Crime writers features a lot.) and also I love reading non fiction History. Hopefully you will find some new authors and new favourites to continue your own reading journey. ENJOY!

This is the second novel by C.J Tudor and what a fantastic book it is. I loved "The Chalk Man" the previous novel, and I didn't think this one could possibly match the excellence of the first book. I am so pleased to be proved wrong. The Taking of Annie Thorne is creepy, sinister and thoroughly gripping.

THEN:   One night Joe Thorne's little sister Annie goes missing. Everyone fears the worst as the search for her continues. After forty eight hours she comes back. But Annie is not the same little 8 year old

NOW:  Joe recieves an email by someone claiming to know what happened all those years ago to his sister. He returns to his childhood village and all the fears and nightmares from the past.

Tudor really captures the suspense in her writing in a style similar to Stephen King. I love the way you are sucked in to the story, and I really did hold my breath as the twists and turns just kept on coming. I would really love to go into more of the story but there are too many spoilers that might slip.

Really looking forward to getting my hands on "The Other People" a new novel release in 2020. Watch this space!
