The Most Memorable Books: 2014

Because it's been such a stellar year for Crime Fiction - a Most Memorable of the Year List before Christmas seems like a plan in case anybody is thinking about books to spoil themselves / friends / family with. Of course the year isn't over yet and I fully expect a few more "memorables" between now and the end of December, if the previous 11 months have been any indication.

The ones that simply will not go out of my head:

CR - The Girl on the Stairs, Louise Welsh

Author Name: 

In a small indication of just how disorganised I've been recently, normally you simply do not get between me and a book by Louise Welsh. I'll fight you for them. So goodness knows what I've been doing, THE GIRL ON THE STAIRS came out in August last year. Mortified. Busy. Be back later.

From the Blurb:

Top Ten(s) of 2010

Having just posted my top 10 (with wiggle room) on 4MA - I thought I'd repeat it here.  Mind you, it's a thankless task having to pick an arbitrary number out of all the great books I've been lucky enough to read this year....

Interview with Louise Welsh

I was lucky enough to catch up with Louise Welsh on the phone recently and chat to her on behalf of the local Sisters in Crime chapter.  We talked about her latest book - NAMING THE BONES, crime fiction, education and that ongoing question - so what is it about Scotland and all those fantastic writers (amongst a lot of other things).
