I’m Amanda. Being a writer, I am absorbed by the world around me and how this is reflected in journalism  – and books. As a child, I liked nothing better than hiding away with my latest Famous Five and a cup of strong black tea; several decades later, nothing much has changed. My taste in books is fairly catholic, although I do have a penchant for Scandinavian noir. If you’re at all interested in what I think of the books I  read, you’re most welcome to read my reviews.
