books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :) 

Very Tantalizing 'Secret' indeed

The Secret Place - Tana French

This is the first Tana French novel I've read, it certainly won't be the last, and I can't conceive how she's stayed off my radar for so long. I loved every bit of this book and although it was number 5 in the Dublin Murder series, I didn't feel lost for not having read the preceding books. French got every aspect of the meanness and snark of girls exactly right and I was hooked to the mystery from page one. Loved it! Now maybe I'll go back and read 1-4 and every other book she's written!! The only small complaint I had was that some of the Irish slang was a bit unfamiliar and I had to guess at the meaning.
