Welcome. Mrs Readalot is my bookaholic alter-ego. She loves nothing better than to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea on a rainy night. It's one of her great pleasures in life (and a sure sign of aging).
Mrs Readalot ran a bloggy bookclub for a couple of years, but recently decided to simplify things, so instead of sharing the hosting and writing monthly book reviews, Mrs Readalot will simply share her latest discoveries as the mood strikes her (see below for book reviews by Mrs Readalot).
Mrs Readalot would be eternally grateful for your book suggestions because at the rate she gets through books, she's constantly running out of reading material.
Mrs Readalot loves all kinds of books, but most especially well-written, fast paced fiction with believable characters and plots which are hard to predict.
Her favourite authors include: Jodi Piccoult, Tad Williams, George R. R. Martin, Stephen Lawhead, Phillippa Gregory and Maeve Binchy. Mrs Readalot has quite eclectic tastes. Her all-time favourite books have included The Hunger Games, The Time-Traveller's Wife, The Game of Thrones Books and The Bright Empires series. She also loved Water for Elephants, The BirthHouse and The Help.
Poor impatient speed-reading Mrs Readalot is impatiently waiting on Mr Martin and Mr Lawhead to deliver the next book in their most-excellent (but very different) series of fantasy novels. In the meantime, she'll read anything she can get her hands on...
