Over mijRetired from research and embracing all the pursuits that took a backseat to the Daily Grind. Thus, reading for pure pleasure ~~

* Fiction ~ mysteries, fantasy, historical fiction
* Non-fiction ~ Biographies, memoirs, intrepid female explorers in the 1800's - early 1900's
* Literary fiction ~ Penelope Lively, Anne Tyler, Anita Brookner are favourites.

Occasionally I receive advance book copies from NetGallery

Over mijn boekenBookshelf philosophy:
* Keep only that which I will re-read or use for reference
* Buy the book only if I adore it and know I will re-read it many times.

Interpreting my star ratings: remember, this is a personal evaluation based solely on what I enjoyed (plotting, creative writing, technically sound construction)

~ or less ~ Life is too short to finish this one
~ Engaging and readable, although flawed workmanship.
~ Enjoyably readable. Solid workmanship, though unimpressed with aspects of the plotline & 'reveals'.
~ Very good. Flashes of brilliance (engaging content, characters, plausible themes). Recommended.
~ Highly recommended, for engagement and thoroughly well-done construction.
~ an inspired work; compelling reading (wholly drawn into the narrative in all its aspects).

Meanwhile, the next BB's of intended reading
1. The Dark Vineyard
2. Black Diamond (Martin Walker)
3. In Praise of Shadows (Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, translated)
4. The Widows of Malabar Hill (Sujata, Massey)(Perveen Mistry series)

Plus, Something I'm keeping in mind.
