This month, my Scottish reads were a bit different because I had a theme. A wee while ago, Bloody Scotland announced the shortlist for the debut Scottish crime fiction novel of 2022. I decided that I wanted to read them all and see if I could predict the winner!
This month I read:
Hear No Evil by Sarah Smith
The Wolf Hunters by Amanda Mitchison
Welcome to Cooper by Tariq Ashkanani
The Girl, The Crow, The Writer, and The Fighter by George Paterson
Meantime by Frankie Boyle
While these books were all Scottish crime novels, they were all so different. This was such an enjoyable reading experience and I’m so excited to see what these authors do next.
Huge congratulations to the winner and all the nominees!
