If you like TV, you might like …

Winter time often finds me on the couch, in front of the fire watching TV. I found an article on an American website with a list of book titles to go with  favourite TV programmes, and this got me thinking about programmes featuring on our screens at the moment.  

CoverWhat could you offer to the ‘Coronation Street’  addict? I thought of Swallowing Grandma by Kate Long, a quirky story with the understated humour that makes The Street so popular.

The Vampire Diaries’ is easy – we have the books by L.J. Smith, and Charlaine Harris does a good line in vampires.

‘Brothers and Sisters’ might be a bit harder,  although I am enjoying reading Jennifer Johnston, who has a liking for tricky family relationships.

‘Top Model’ devotees might enjoy books about Pattie Boyd, Kate Moss and Marie Helvin and ‘Midsummer Murder’ watchers have probably read all the books by P.D. James and Ruth Rendell, but could well like  Simon Brett and Catherine Aird.

A previous  post talked about The Wire;  does it have anything similar in fiction, and what about Outrageous Fortune

    Hi Catherine
    Just thought I would write and tell you that I think I found your website and your comments on three writers books – hope I got that right. I also looked at all the photos taken at the conference. You look very smart in your red scarf. Hope you had a fun and worthwhile time in Auckland.
    Cheers and all the best
