I’d like to thank Lectito for nominating me for this award at a time when I needed a little sunshine. Lectito reviews literary fiction, crime thrillers, sci-fi and fantasy as well as YA and I always come away with a book or two to add to my reading list when I visit.

Lectito’s Questions

1.What do you love most about reading?

Colouring, crochet, going to the cinema and watching cooking programs on TV.

Off the top of my head, with no procrastination: The Winter Boy by Sally Wiener Grotta, Disclaimer by Renée Knight and The Magpies by Mark Edwards.

10.What’s the seventh sentence on the current page of your current read?
