About crimebookjunkie

My name is Noelle and I am 43 years young....don't laugh! I am an avid reader and by that I mean I am never without a book! By day I work in the criminal Justice Sector and by night I read all things crime!! My fascination for books started at a young age and I truly feel withdrawal symptoms if I am unable to read for a few days...hence the name: Crime Book Junkie! I am interested in many genres, my faves being Grit Lit, psychological thrillers, suspense, mystery and all things murderous. I do enjoy Police Procedurals and legal thrillers as well. I tend to keep well away from Chick Lit and Erotica...however, if forced at gun point I may give just about anything a read. I tend to review on Goodreads, Amazon UK, Netgalley and share reviews on Twitter/Facebook via THE Book Club. Oh..and I am obsessed with my chocolate Lab Buster and gorgeous Tabby Pebbles. I have been lucky enough to be a Guest Reviewer on www.bestcrimebooks.co.uk until I have this site up and running so be gentle, this is a whole new world for me!
