Tanya I love that you split the genres into two posts, because they are absolutely not the same thing, and I hate when people bunch them together. I'm a fan of both, but the similarities are scarce.

I'm currently reading Du Maurier's House on the Strand, which surprisingly has some sci-fi elements, something I'm not used to from her other work!
