  1. I've been catching up with your recent posts and enjoying all the book lists and recs. I've recently started wanting to read more mysteries too. There's also a series of noir books, each a collection of dark or mysterious stories set in a different city, from Akashic Books; so far I've read the one from Manila and am now making my way through Kingston, and they're pretty good.

    Have a happy New Year :)

  2. I haven't heard of them, but I kind of steer away from noir. :<))


I'll answer your comments as soon as I possibly can. Please do come back if you've asked a question.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
