I’m a book lover from way back. In fact, my mother regularly tells the story of me at two years old, carrying a Golden Book around instead of a teddy bear! So I was born with a love of books and reading, although at the moment I tend to read mostly textbooks and journal articles. I’m a post-graduate psychology student at the moment, about to go into Masters,and a criminologist, and hopefully will specialise in forensic psychology (although it’s a pretty long road to travel, I’m at the 6 year mark). My husband is a forensic criminologist by trade, and associate professor of criminology at a university here in Australia. Together we’re partners in crime you might say 🙂 And we published out first textbook “Homicide” in December 2018, which was quite a process!
I love to read thrillers with a psychological/police procedural feel to them, and the odd Harlequin romance, which is a hoot i know. I’m also a big fan of Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain. Love a good true crime read as well. I’ve set up this blog to share my reading adventures with you all, recommend good books and authors, and step away from the stuffy academic writing! So don’t be surprised if I’m lax with my grammar an punctuation *laughing*.
Thanks for liking, sharing, and/or following the page. Hope you enjoy.

Hello there, how exciting to discover you and your blog. I love seeing the stacks of books and your shelves. Brought me much joy. Which part of Australia are you from? I grew up there and now live in California.
Thank you very much 😊 I live just over the qld border on the east coast. And have followed your blog now 😁
