Welcome! Books on the Window Seat is a place for book lovers to visit for reviews of literature new and old. I don’t actually have a window seat, but if I did, I’d recline upon it and read all day… I like to read both contemporary literary fiction and the classic good stuff, both famous and obscure – even non-fiction sometimes! I won’t like all books, but usually I wouldn’t pick one up unless I thought there was something worthwhile in there… I live in Melbourne, Australia, and am rather partial to local literature, but my reading ambitions are global! In my reviews I aim to be honest, so you can decide whether a book is ‘your cup of tea’ or not. If you need a quick evaluation, just scroll down to the bottom for a brutually short ‘Verdict’. And if you agree/disagree/like/dislike etc, feel free to comment!
