About Booker Talk
Who is BookerTalk?
Hello and welcome to my blog. I’m Karen, a life-long book addict who loves talking to everyone and anyone about books and authors. Strangers on trains, in hospital waiting rooms, in cafes – the minute I see someone reading a book I just can’t resist the opportunity for a chat. It’s a habit that exhausts my friends and family but hopefully not the people who find this blog.
What can you expect from BookerTalk?
On this site you’ll find reviews of the books I’m reading. They’re my personal reactions in which I try to be honest. If I don’t care for a book I will say so but I am always balanced. I mix the reviews up with posts about the reading experience and authors’ lives. As a native of Wales I also like to use my blogΒ to spotlight authors from my native country, so you’ll see interviews with authors and reviews of their novels.
My reading tastes
My tastes are varied. I enjoy 19th century fiction but am equally as happy reading contemporary novels, historical fiction or fiction in translation. You’ll rarely find me reading science fiction or fantasy. I also have an aversion to books featuring circuses and talking animals and don’t even think about giving me a book where the cover features a bare-chested guy who glowers or a heavily-made up woman trying to look sultry
