Crime fiction doesn't have to be all gore and slashery. There are so many sub headings in the crime literary world that there is a book for everyone. You can get cosy crime, psychological crime, police procedural, legal thrillers and even historical crime.
I had a discussion last week with someone who told me the book, Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson wasn't a crime book simply because it was very psychological. The book actually won the Crime Writers Association John Creasy (New Blood) Dagger, so it definitely falls within the category crime.
I've been blogging for just over a year now and I don't know how many of my fellow bloggers read crime. I'd love to hear your views and thoughts. Are you an all out crime lover, an occasional crime reader, someone who didn't realise they were maybe reading crime, or a reader who just can't pick up that genre at all?
