About

bogart readingWelcome to my blog, where I post reviews of whatever I’ve just finished reading, plus anything else book-related that catches my eye. I particularly enjoy crime fiction, especially books which push at the boundaries of the genre. I also enjoy more conventional police procedurals, and am currently (and very slowly) working my way through Ed McBain’s epic, 50-year 87th Precinct series – partly in homage to the writer who first pulled me into a life of crime.

WAYRF doesn’t have a review policy – the closest I’ve ever come to one is this post. If I like a book, I review it. If I don’t like it, I keep schtum. But I’m always interested in anything new – so if you want to reach me you can do so via whatareyoureadingfor@gmail.com, and also The Twitter – right here.

      1. I think he’s an interesting character, definitely.

        Umm…If you prefer stories, The Prince and the Pauper might be a good place to start. It’s my favorite story that he did. Of course, he’s famous for Huckleberry Finn, so you could try that.

        If you’d prefer his journeying books…Roughing It, or Innocents Abrode are real good!!

        Hope I didn’t scare you away!

  1. I love your blog and was wondering if you’d be interested in getting involved with our new independent publishing imprint – Britain’s Next Bestseller.
    In a nutshell; Britain’s Next Bestseller is a new independent publisher. Our mission is very simple – to shake up the way the UK publishing industry works. We want to give authors a new, fairer way to land a publishing contract without relying on literary agents, traditional publishers or self-publishing houses.
    How does it work? Once authors have a finished, fully edited manuscript, we agree a target number of pre-orders they need to achieve in a set timeframe. Then we help authors create a buzz on social media and via our website. If they achieve the required number of pre-orders, they bag a book deal; we publish their book within 12 weeks and provide industry-beating royalties, international distribution and free professional sales and marketing support.
    Obviously for this model to work, word of mouth support via blogs and social media is key – which is where people like you come in! Please let me know if you’re interested in interviewing our founder, Murielle. Or any of our BNBS authors? Or perhaps you would consider hosting interviews, guest posts, book tours, giveaway or cover reveals? Our website is http://www.britainsnextbestseller.com
    Look forward to hearing what you think!
    Thanks again,
    Jude x
