For me a visit to a bookshop* is like a small child’s dream trip to a candy store. There are so many great books to choose from that I can spend hours window shopping. Okay, and buying. I have no willpower in a bookshop!

So, given the plethora of great books lining my bookshelves, my Kindle and my iPad, I thought I would share some additional information to my blog about the ones I’m really excited about. Please note: I like to enjoy myself when I am reading so all** the books recommended on this page have happy endings. If you’re a cynic looking for catharsis through a dire and desperate reading experience, then these recommendations are not for you. Of course, variety is the spice of life so I have included some non-romance titles at the end, but dire and desperate they are not.
