About Sharon

My name is Sharon and I am a crime fiction addict! Seriously addicted to reading – average around 4 per week and I’m known to stalk a few authors, in particular Scottish authors 🙂 I live at home with my 2 kids, 24 and 18 (well I think they live there, I’m always reading) and our Golden lab – Cooper. Other than reading I love going to book launches and events, and reading too! I am passionate about books and my dream is to own a wee independent bookshop, I even have the name ready and the interior design sorted – I just need the money!


My thanks to Sharon for taking the time to answer my questions for #TopFiveThursday

    Hi to both of you and thanks for providing such an interesting and entertaining post.

    All of your ‘top 5 read’ books are new to me, with the exception of ‘Bloq’, which is in my TBR pile, as I have read and enjoyed both of Alan’s previous books.

    It goes without saying that the other four books, are heading for my ‘Want To Read’ list also 🙂
