I’m at it again! combining a blog tour with The Bookshelf so you’re getting a sneaky extra bookshelf mid-week!
I want to ensure the book we’re here for, gets its time so before we start The Bookshelf here is a bit about Fighting Monsters
24 hours after he walked away from court a free man, cop killer and gang leader Simon Talbot is found murdered. In his possession; the name of a protected witness from his trial.
For DI Hannah Robbins, it’s a race against time to find Talbot’s killer, and locate the bystander before it’s too late.
But as Hannah delves deeper into the past, she begins to question the integrity of the whole operation.
Where do you turn when you can’t trust the police?

So, onto the books! Here is Rebecca’s bookshelf, enjoy…
What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
A book with the most gorgeous white glossy cover. It was clean and simple and was pure white with a copper coloured key in the middle. That was it. The title and author were embossed white. It was stunning. Consent by Leo Benedictus.
Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
London Rules by Mick Herron. This is the latest in a brilliant spy series. I would recommend it any crime fan. Regardless of whether they think they enjoy spy books, this is different. His writing, his characters, they are alive, just brilliant!
Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
Last year I managed to read close to 200 books, so I’m slightly spoiled for choice! Though this is because I also listen to a lot of audiobooks. I’m addicted to them. You can listen to them even if you couldn’t possibly be sitting reading.
All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai (Sci-Fi time travel, audiobook)
Unbroken: My story of survival from 7/7 Bombings to Paralympics by Martine Wright (non-fiction, audiobook)
The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon (YA)
Missing Presumed by Susie Steiner (Crime)
Perfect Remains by Helen Fields (Crime)
Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton. I love everything she writes.
And, The Dark Angel by Elly Griffiths because I adore this series.
What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
Into the Woods by John Yorke. I haven’t read it yet but I’ve heard nothing but great things about Yorke so I’m looking forward to digging into it.
Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
I think I probably have to say the first one, Shallow Waters because that is the one that started my writing career. Without it, I wouldn’t have the readers I have now and I wouldn’t be in the position I am now of writing a series I love, with characters I love to spend time with.
Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer. That was a fantastic book. The main character drawn so fantastically well. It’s an amazing crime novel. Also, anything by David Jackson. Have you read him? Wow, his writing is – how many times can I use the word brilliant? I need to find another… but you get the point!
Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
There is but it’s currently with my agent so I’m not sure on timeframes. It’s completely different to the DI Hannah Robbins series and it was a book I really wanted to write. I’m excited about releasing that one. Oh, and utterly terrified of course.
