Recommended Books

This page will be updated on a regular *cough cough* basis, or dependent on when I have finished reading something that MUST be shared with the world. A-ha.

The books/journals/articles etc are in no order of preference, however I may go through them – when I feel the need to temporise – and alphabatise it by Author or Title…or however I feel at that particular point in time!

One last thing to let you know before the towering list of Babylon begins, are what the codes stand for next to each book:
S – seriously (and yes, that is sarcasm you detect)
L – lit
F – fluff
B – bloody (knife in the back, who-dunnit?, chainsaw,  et cetera)
V – vampires, werewolves etc
O – oz lit
T – teen, oh my gawd
P – pictureless (really this stands for non-fiction)
Q – questionable (in every way)
R – ridiculously riveting
I – if you don’t read this, you’re an CRAZY
N – if you didn’t like this, you’re NUTS
U – unique
