Reading Ages

While talking to a fellow twitter today katrina who is a Australian Children's Author and I asked her she had thought about writing for other ages apart from small children. This chat then turned into what books as a Adult we read.

Both of us discovered we love reading books that go across a wide range of ages, even though I'm 40 years old I still love reading the occasionally YA (Young Adult) books like Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Three Investigators, The Hardy Boys, as well as YA books written by Rebecca Sparrow Nick Earls kate Hunter

Why do I like reading YA books for me I love escaping back into my childhood every now & then plus if the book is by my favourite author then I'll read everything they write no matter what age they write for.

As a teenager I remember the local librarian use to let me start reading from the adult section of the library and some of the Adult books I started reading were Charlies Angels series, Can Stephine Come Out To Play, Who Killed Mr Griffin? as well as being able to finally get my hands on true crime books which I still love even these days.

Tell me what kind of books you love reading as a adult and why?

Jack Sim presents Haunted Ipswich: Ghosts of the Heritage City by Jack Sim

The first book of the rank is 

Jack Sim presents Haunted Ipswich: Ghosts of the Heritage City by Jack Sim 
45 pages.

It's the 2nd book in is Ghost Trails Series, talking about 13 different haunted buildings and/or areas in Ipswich Brisbane Queensland. Some sites/buildings meantioned in the book you can actually go visit like the Ipswich General Cemetry, while some other sites/buildings are privately owned so can't be access without the owners permission. All these sites/buildings are real haunted sites. 

If you love reading about Ghosts or even History of areas I highly suggest you read this book. This book can be read in one sitting & it is hard to put down especially if your into Ghosts, or if you want to make it last you can read a chapter a day which will take about 5 to 15 mins depending on how fast you read. 

Jack Sim also has his own website that can be found at jacksim

I'm not sure what the next book will be of the rank but I do intend to make it a longer review then this one.

Till next time happy reading :-)


Welcome to the Book Readers Room, Where every week people can come chat about books they have read, and where I will review 1 or 2 books a week I've read that I feel other people may like to read.

Please excuse me if some of the reviews aren't very long or are missing that something but this is the first time I've done something like this.
