Crime Fiction Month: August, 2013

Crime Fiction Month 2013 | Books, Biscuits, and Tea

We’re nearing the end of July and it can only mean one thing: Crime Fiction Month is about to kick off!

As you may know, I love crime. It doesn’t matter if it’s an “old-school” cosy mystery, such as Agatha Christie’s or Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels, a twisty police procedural or an adrenaline-drenched, gory thriller, there’s just something about these stories that I can’t seem to resist. Which leads me to today’s announcement.

Starting August 1st, I’m kicking off a month-long event here on Books, Biscuits, and Tea: an entire month devoted to crime fiction and all of its sub-genres. Not only am I bringing you reviews of some of this year’s best crime releases and guest posts by two successful crime writers, but I’m also hosting TWO exciting giveaways, courtesy of Orion Books. And to whet your appetite a little bit, some of the books to be featured are…

*waves* See you in August!

      Most of the books I’ll be featuring are amazing (or at least I absolutely loved them) so I can’t recommend them enough. :) xxxx

    I am new to your blog and love to talk about books so excited to read.
    I used to love crime then joined my current job(real life crime!) and went off it completely but have got back into it again in the last year.
    I like new ones but you cannot be Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes as the top detectives xx

    I am now officially excited for August! I was just thinking I wanted to mix up my usual reads for a while so maybe I can focus on Crime in August to help celebrate the month… Looking forward to finding some new authors! :-)

    I just finished reading and reviewing “The Never List” and “The Crossing Places” on my blog in July. I loved “The Crossing Places”, but “The Never List” lost me about halfway through. Have fun reading!

    I have been addicted to thrillers/murder mysteries and everything SCARY this summer :) I was quite excited to come across your blog post. A whole month of crime fiction?? THANK YOU!

    I wanted to recommend a psychological thriller/crime fiction novel I’ve just read entitled, “The Gemini Factor” by author Philip Fleishman ( The book focuses on a string of gruesome murders in two different countries, with two different detectives and a jaw-dropping twist! The serial killer is leaving identical clues in both locations. This is an exciting and fast paced novel with a medical and psychiatric background of serial killers which is informative and understandable for the reader. I think the author has come up with a unique and riveting plot line and well developed characters. Hope you give it a read!
