Welcome to #TimeForCrime a new series here at Chapterinmylife.
I am inviting bloggers and authors talk about their favourite subject crime, with a set of quick-fire Q&As taking you to the dark heart of the person behind the book or the blog!
This week I am delighted to welcome blogger, Claire from #AKnightsReads
Name: Claire Knight
About you: I’m Claire and I’m from Leeds. I work in the really exciting world of pensions and I escape reality in my books. Until recently, I was the guest reviewer on #CrimeBookJunkie but I have now flown the nest and I’m flying solo with my own wee blog called A Knight’s Reads. When I’m not working or reading, I have my hubby and two adorable boys to look after.
Let’s delve into the depths of Claire’s mind…
Why crime fiction? To be honest, I don’t remember not reading some form of crime fiction or watching crime drama on television. Maybe there is a part of me that wanted to be a detective and this is my way of being one. I love the twists, the turns and the grand reveals. I try to work out who, why and how.
Favourite book you have reviewed Too hard!!!! I have read some blooming brilliant books over the past few years
You are stranded on a desert island, you can take one book, what will it be what an evil question……I’m going to cheat and plump for my kindle….well it’s a book of sorts….
Do you have a kill list and who is on it? If I told you I’d have to kill you…..depending on the day of the week, there are a few people who would hit my kill list but it wouldn’t be fair to tell them in advance…..or did you mean fictional!?
Top criminal (real or fiction) I have to say I love S Williams’ Tuesday from Tuesday Falling. She’s a vigilante dishing out justice in her own way
Top fictional detective From an early age I’ve loved Hercule Poirot, the bumbling Belge with his little grey cells.
Planner or pantser/organised or beautifully chaotic I tend to plan the reads I need to read in a month but once they’re done, its what takes my fancy
Favourite method of murder The more warped the better. My favourite of recent times has been Graham Smith using a nail gun! Saying that I’ve just read Roz Watkins’ The Devil’s Dice and this starts with death by cake!!!
Best place to dispose a body All I’ll say is read Netta Newbound’s An Impossible Dilemma
