It’s Monday, the start of a great week for all, I hope, and time to introduce another member of our virtual crime fiction book club. Stephanie Rothwell is an avid and discerning crime fiction reader, and a big fan of long-running series. I convinced her to answer a few questions about her reading pursuits and give us some ideas for our already groaning TBR lists!
I started reading crime fiction when I was a child. Enid Blyton, especially the Adventure Series, Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and the Three Investigators were all favourites.
Are there any particular types of crime fiction or subgenres that you prefer to read and why?
What is the most memorable book you’ve read recently?
If you had to choose only one series or only one author to take with you to a deserted island, whom would you choose?
Outside your criminal reading pursuits, what author/series/book/genre do you find yourself regularly recommending to your friends?
Currently it seems to be books about WW1, in particular ‘Wake’ by Anna Hope.
Thank you, Steph, for taking the time to answer my questions (and general nosiness). It seems there are quite a few of us who enjoy series by the same author, although we may be divided over the issue ‘read them in order’ or ‘read whichever is available’.
For more revelations of reading passions, see here. And if you would like to participate in the series, please let me know either in comments below or on Twitter.
