Hello dear reader(s) and welcome to another (belated) summer instalment of Nessa reads books and writes reviews (NRBWR). 🙂 Everyone’s concept of an enjoyable beach read is different; some folks like romances, others fantasy, or science fiction. A friend of mine likes to read history books on the beach. Some stick to glossy magazines ‘cause the sun is shining so brightly, the temperatures are above 35⁰C and your higher thought processes start shutting down. For me personally the ideal summer and beach reads are crime novels; they’re the perfect combination of a puzzle, thriller and tour guide, especially if you’re reading a series.
