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 Katie from katiesbookcave

Name: Katie Jones

About you:  I’m 29, work as support worker for a large UK charity which I love and spend most of my days off reading or trawling the local book shops! I have a partner who loves books as much as me, and he doesn’t complain at me talking about books like 99% of the time! I only started blogging at the start of this year, before that I just put my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. I adore blogging, everyone is so friendly and welcoming, I still can’t get over people actually following my blog and reading it!


Let’s delve into the depths of Katie’s mind…

Why crime fiction?
I have always been a fan of crime and mystery for as long as I can remember. I loved reading the Point Horror and Point Crime books growing up; some of my favourite book memories are reading those. I love how different and imaginative the authors are in this genre; many times I have been blown away by how fascinating a book is. I really admire crime authors coming up with some fabulous ideas and at times can be quite sadistic!
Favourite book you have reviewed
The first one that sprung to my mind was No Ordinary Girl by Cheryl Elaine. I have to admit this book was truly sadistic and graphic, I absolutely loved it!
You are stranded on a desert island, you can take one book, what will it be
Ooh that’s tricky, I’ll go for the complete Sherlock Holmes. No matter how many times I read it, I still adore it.
Do you have a kill list and who is on it?
There is one certain president who springs to mind…
Top criminal (real or fiction)
I’d have to say Jack the Ripper, he evaded capture which in those days I can imagine wasn’t hard and he really did put Whitechapel on the map. As well as some fab TV shows that has come out of his crimes.
Top fictional detective
My favourite is definitely DCI Ryan by LJ Ross, he’s just brilliant and I have a big soft spot for him.
Planner or pantser/organised or beautifully chaotic
I am a very organised person so I can imagine I will need to think out every little detail before doing anything. I hate doing things on a whim, I need time to think about it and process it.
Favourite method of murder
I hate mess and I would despise to get anything on me so I’d have to go with something that would be neat and tidy. Poisoning would be good for me but don’t know if it would take too long for someone to snuff it, I can be quite impatient. Strangulation maybe but I don’t think I’d be strong enough.
Best place to dispose a body
Definitely buried I think in the middle of Wales or Scotland where it’s quiet and it could go unnoticed for years. Or even throwing in the middle of the sea (like Dexter) but that seems like it could be too much effort and I have no clue how to drive a boat.
Where can we find you? (Oh your blog details, dafty, any personal haunts send them to me privately!)
I blog at Katie’s Book Cave https://katiesbookcave.wordpress.com and I’m always lurking around on Twitter https://www.twitter.com/katiejones88 and also on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/katiesbookcavereviews

I will usually be found on my days off with my head in a book or around the East Midlands with books in my hand and dragging the boyfriend around.

Thank you Katie! So if you come up and visit me in Scotland, you may have an ulterior motive for your visit…

Go check out Katie’s blog and check out her reviews!
