Hello! Welcome to A Paperback Life.

This blog is mainly a place where I post reviews of the books I read. Some other book related activities may also take place once in a while!

About Me:

An avid reader and owner of over 200 books, all paperbacks, hence the name A Paperback Life

I’m mainly a fan of mystery/detective stories, plays, short stories and classics.

I also love discovering forgotten classics and bringing them to everyone’s attention.

I’m not really a fan of mushy romantic stories and books written after the first half of the 20th century. I am not much into the recent spate of YA lit or paranormal romance either (vampires, werewolves, fallen angels, fairies, changelings; etc.).

Favourite Authors: Douglas Adams, Jane Austen, Emily Brontë, John le Carré, Agatha Christie, Charles Dickens, Thomas Love Peacock, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Bram Stoker.

Favourite Genre: Mystery.

I also have a movie based blog called  A Life in Movies.  Do check it out, if you want to.
