#TopFiveThursday with #BookBlogger Tracy Fenton aka compulsivereaders @Tr4cyF3nt0n


Today I’m thrilled to have Tracy Fenton pop by the book review café to answer those dreaded #TopFiveThursday questions. Tracy blogs over at http://www.compulsivereaders.co.uk although her blog is fairly new there isn’t much that Tracy doesn’t know about books she’s the founder of The Book Club on Facebook which has over 7,000 members including authors. 

Tracy mostly reviews crime and psychological thrillers, her reviews are short and to the point (you won’t find any ramblings here, unlike my own reviews😂😂)  Tracy also runs a popular feature called Behind The Blogger so I would definitely recommend you take a look at her blog.

Top 5 blogging tips that you would give to new bloggers?

Never ever give away spoilers in your review.

Always be honest in your reviews.

Don’t be afraid to say NO to an author or publisher if you can’t read the book or don’t fancy it.

Do it for yourself, and enjoy it. If it gets too much or you stop enjoying it or feel under pressure take a step back.

Keep your blog fresh and original and make it fun for your followers.

IMG_2230I live in Bushey, Hertfordshire with my husband Jason (patience of a saint and non-reader), my 2 boys Jack and Ben (aged 17 and 14) and my 11 year old diabetic bichon Charlie. I have a full time job working with hubby running our Office Furniture & Commercial Design company, Plan-It Interiors.

I have always been an avid reader, during my teens I read mainly chick-lit and rom-com and once married started reading true crime and police procedural books. In my late 30’s I started reading psychological thrillers and now I am addicted to them.

There is nothing more rewarding than recommending a book to someone and they love it as much as I do.


My thanks to Tracy for taking time out of her busy schedule to answer my #TopFiveThursday questions

    I’m totally with Tracy on A Mother’s Confession, boy is that cover misleading – and A Fact of A Body is one of the best non-fiction reads I’ve come across – another brilliant opportunity to find out more about the blogger!
