Welcome to PLUM-CRAZY's Bookshelf

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.
While I mainly read crime/thrillers I'm always open to something new, though I don't like biographies or sci-fi, (that said the 3 or 4 sci-fi books I've had recommended by other BCers have been enjoyable).
Basically, if you're good enough to send it, I'll read it...eventually ;o)


I do love a good grisly murder! - especially where the main characters are mavericks, outsiders or just plain off-the-wall, & I've recently discovered the delights Scandinavian crime fiction which has given me a host of "new" authors to catch up on. Working my way through the following crime/thrillers is an on-going pleasure & I can highly recommend each & everyone of 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) - Jackson Brodie (Kate Atkinson) - Kevin Byrne & Jessica Balzano (Richard Montanari) - Logan McRae (Stuart MacBride)- Harry Hole (Jo Nesbo)

As well as reading, I love crosswords & quizzes of any sort & loud music!! -
it's gotta be rock; hard, heavy, metal- whatever,
my current heroes being Black Stone Cherry.

I'm also hooked on the game
"DARK MANOR" & I'm playing as PLUM HALL - just in case I appear on your invite friends list!

For those in the 2014 Birthday group:
I'm easy to please as anything goes & I'm always happy to try anything edible! I like milk chocolate (especially praline/truffles/nuts) I love liquorice & suffer from a serious addiction to Lion's Midget Gems & Sports Mix.
Bookcrossing supplies are always welcome both from the store or homemade...in fact anything handmade is much appreciated. I've recently (Jan 2014) decided to have a go at making fabric book covers, so any pieces of fabric, buttons or other embellishments would also be appreciated - if/when I get the hang of it who knows, one may be coming your way, just got to learn to stitch in a straight line first.....here are my first attempts :o)
