Welcome to Novel Delights, a blog to share in the delights of books.
I’m Kirsty, an avid reader with eclectic taste when it comes to reading. I will happily read most genres and especially love a good psychological thriller, mystery, romance, historical and contemporary fiction. The one genre I’m not so keen on is science fiction. As I love books and go to loads of authors’ events in Manchester where I live, I thought I would have a go at writing this blog to share my thoughts.
I’m also a member of a book group – just something that my friends and I set up over ten years ago (now that makes me feel old!). We set it up as a good excuse to read more, meet up and generally have a good old gossip; but it has also encouraged me to read books which I would never have personally chosen. Some of these books have now become all-time favourites for me! Therefore as part of this blog, I’m going to share with you our book group choices so that you (if you want to) can read them too and comment on them if you wish. Beware, my book group buddies and I all have have very different tastes.
I promise that with all my book reviews I will give you my honest opinion as there is no value for anyone in recommending a book to you that I don’t believe in. However I do appreciate and recognise that even if a book does not work for me, that does not mean that it won’t work for everyone. I will always provide you with my reasons as to why certain aspects of a novel do not work for me.
I have been blogging now for a few months and I love it! I hope that you enjoy Novel Delights too. It is ‘work in progress’ with the aim that it will develop as I become more familiar with being a ‘blogger’. Therefore if you have any feedback, please do let me know.
Thank you and enjoy!
