Rating books from my childhood

Nostalgia is probably very rose tinted. Every so often I remember an author form my childhood and add the books I remember to the list of 'my books' here.

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
