I have a very eclectic reading style from my true love of crime fiction to fantasy to my recent discovery of new adult. I think that it is pretty safe to say that I will give most books a chance. The fact I read so many different books across so many genres has made it really hard to pick out a top 10 as what I look for in a crime novel will be totally different to what I look for in a new adult book.
For that reason I am going to have a top 10 crime books & top 10 other books but even with 2 top 10s there is one book that stood out for me a head & shoulders above the rest & that is Summertime by Vanessa Lafaye. This book was a late entry for my top read as I only read an advanced copy in December but I was totally blown away by it & the fact that it is Vanessa's debut novel was even more mind-blowing. I loved absolutely everything about it - the plot, the intrigue, the location, the time period - everything about the book just worked.
Watch out for my review next week when Summertime is published. Trust me you need to add this book to your must read list for 2015.
