Today's post is a blog hop, created by the lovely Rebecca Kiel over on her blog of the same name. The premise is simple - List one of your favourite books.
Simple eh?! I found this blog hop gave me a ridiculously difficult choice to make. Choose one book you love. How as a book lover of many genres choose just one book?
If I was looking specifically at a book aimed at writers, I would easily have said Stephen King's On Writing, but that narrows the field of people who would want to read it, down.
The book that has made a massive impact me on most recently, I have already blogged about. Jojo Moyes, Me before You.
So where did I go from there? I decided the best place was to go to my favourite author who just so happens to write a crime series and then pick her first book in that series and the one that started my love of her books, so my book for todays blog hop is Karin Slaughter - Blindsighted.
It's brilliantly done. Slaughter's book, though crime orientated and sometimes grisly, are character driven and you can easily get inside their skins. Often, you wish you weren't in that skin at that point in time, but that's because she drags you along so mercilessly. I love her books, I love her narrative style, so Blindsighted is a great place to start if you want to try a crime series.
