Petrona is a blog about books, reading (mainly intelligent crime fiction, often translated), publishing, science, the internet and a few other topics. Previously at Typepad
All my reviews are archived here – you can sort by geographical region, genre and other criteria.
Book review policy: Most of the books reviewed here are books I own, have been offered by publishers or friends, or occasionally borrowed from the library, as specified in each posted review. I review print and E-books (Kindle (UK) format). Publishers: please do not send any books unless I’ve expressed interest in reading them (you can contact me by email (maxinelclarke [at] gmail [dot] com) or via Twitter ( @Petrona_ ) / Friend Feed comment ). Authors: please do not ask me to review your book or send me copies.
I cannot guarantee to review any book I am sent, even if I’ve expressed interest in it. In particular, I prefer not to review books that I have not enjoyed reading.
The views expressed on this blog and the associated book review archive are my own and do not represent an employer or any other organisation.
