Location Aberdeen, Scotland, United Kingdom
Introduction What can I say? I adore books. I love nothing more than curling up with a mug of coffee & a good book. Sometimes I even enjoy talking to people about it. Reading is such a solitary pleasure... like masterbation for the mind! Occasionally I'll put pen to paper & jot something down, but mostly, it's about the reading for me...
Interests Reading, reading, reading, watching movies, reading, writing, reading, reviewing, reading - did I mention I love reading? You may have gathered that I like reviewing too.
Favorite Movies Bell Book & Candle, Vertigo, His Girl Friday, The Ladykillers, Arsenic & Old Lace, So I married an Axe Murderer, Blythe Spirit, Dangerous Liaisons, Amadeus, Harvey
Favorite Music Dream Theater, Queen, The Police, mostly rock & heavy metal, but I have quite wide-ranging tastes
Favorite Books Horrors, chillers, thrillers, sci-fi/fantasy, mystery - you name it, I'll read it. I especially love Terry Pratchett, Kelley Armstrong & Christopher Brookmyre. I also like a bit of comedy every now & then. Usually the dark kind, but what the Hell. Recently I got into historical fiction thanks to one Simon Scarrow whose series about the 43AD Romman invasion of Britain - riveting stuff! Useless trivia - I am the original Young Vampirologist & have an absolute love of a good, old-fashioned vampire story! And there's no escaping the fact that I'm a sci-fi geek - there it is.
