Thrill Week and loads of free books!

Why I love them thrills

If you read my first Thrill Week (hosted by Marce at Tea Time With Marce) post last week you will read all about my favourite crime authors and books, but what I didn’t really explain is why I love this genre so much.

I love to read, especially to escape into another world. I love all sorts of books from classics to historical and most things inbetween but crime fiction is quite possibly my favourite genre. I love to be entertained and thrilled; I love to work out who dunnit and why they did itl; I love to be fascinated, shocked and amazed by the complex plots that these authors dream up. I love to get inside the mind of a killer and to be present in the autopsy room while the pathologist works out how the victim died, I love to work out the clues with the Detectives on the case and to second guess peoples motives.

Crime fiction (wether it be police procedurals, medical, hard-boiled or cosy) there is something so exciting about becoming part of a world where anything could happen…


  Follow the clues below to win!

This is the exciting part: Four fantastic UK publishers have very kindly agreed to donate a little bundle of books each. I am really excited about the titles too as I have read most of them and these are some seriously great books!

All you have to do is fill in the form right here and let me know which bundle you would like. It’s that simple! Two of the bundles are international, one is Europe only and one is UK only so that means that absolutely everyone can enter for at least two of the giveaways.


International Giveaways

Transworld Bundle

Sacrifice, Awakening, Blood Harvest and Now You See Me all by S J Bolton

(I discovered S J Bolton’s books earlier this year and have now read 3 out of her 4 books and they are seriously good! Once you have read one, you will become addicted)

Quercus Bundle

Crossing Places, The Janus Stone, The House At Sea’s End all by Elly Griffiths

(I am completely and utteley in love with this series about Detective Harry Nelson and Forensic Archaeologist Ruth Galloway solve crimes together from bones found on the Norfolk coastline.  Brilliant characters, fabulous setting and no gore in sight if you like your crime books a little less bloody)

Europe Only

Headline Bundle

Satori by Don Winslow, Mystery by Jonathan Kellerman, Cuckoo by Julia Crouch, A Serpent Uncoiled by Simon Spurrier

(These are all new books out so I haven’t had the chance to read any of them yet (although Cuckoo is near the top of my pile). Looks like a fantastic pile of books though!)

UK Only

Hodder Bundle

Faithful Place by Tana French, Lasting Damage by Sophie Hannah, Wink Murder by Ali Knight, Without Mercy by Lisa Jackson

(Tana French and Sophie Hannah’s books are brilliant and these two are no exception. I have the other two at home too (the latter is just out) and both look like great crime fiction to dive into.)

Please fill in the form below to enter and GOOD LUCK!


I have the most amazing giveaways!

This giveaway will run to the end of Saturday 10th September to give you all enough time to enter. Winers will be selected using and will be announced on Sunday 11th September. All winners will be contacted by email on that Sunday and given until Wednesday to respond to my email asking for your address. If anyone doesn’t respond by then, the prize will be offered to the next person picked using again.

  1. Wonderful! I used to read a lot more crime fiction (my family thought I was obsessed) but have slowly cut down because of all the other books I have. But it’s still my favourite genre and I’m always on the lookout for new titles!


  2. What a GREAT giveaway! I am so amazed by how you guys can come up with this. Being fairly new to the blogger world i didn’t expect it to be so much FUN! 🙂
    All the best with your blog. I’m glad I found it through FF blog hop 😀

    Thanks so much Boof.Crime fiction, mysteries and thrillers are among my favourite and as you do, I think autumn is the perfect season to indulge into these.My bedside is clotted, to my utter delight, with books belonging to these genres.

    greetings from France !

    PS/ I am going to Norfolk from sept 29th to oct 3rd and I am saving my copy of the third Elli Griffith book for the trip (a business trip but I am really looking forward to it nevertheless). Hope they have a nice bookstore where I am going and that I will have a chance to spend some delightful time there !


  4. Crime fiction is my favourite genre everything from cosy M C Beaton to the gore of Val McDermid, I just can’t get enough! A great giveaway Boof! Thanks you 🙂


  5. Boof, how fabulously fantastically awesome!!! As you know, we are sisters in crime loving:) Although I think I started reading Tess before you, you hauled past me and finished them all first!
