Books and Reviews. New and Old, by DG Hudson

DG's Book Reviews 2013

Books reviewed on this blog come from my TBR stack or my personal library. Science Fiction and Mystery/Suspense are the usual fare, with a mix of books about Paris, some literary titles, writing instructions, and 'happenstance' books - found at the library, e-books offered as review copies, or discounts gleaned from the sale racks at the bookstore. I also include fantasy and some paranormal.

This year the reviews are in Most Recent to Oldest (descending order). Links go to my review posts.  Thanks for stopping by.

Note: Book Covers released in different countries may vary from those shown in this post.
