Caught out reading my kindle under the table…

Hello! Welcome to my book blog. I’m Anna and I am a business journalist based in London. You can find out more about what I’m up to on my LinkedIn page and Twitter site.

What is the point of this blog?

I want to discuss the future of publishing and also share the books that I have read and rated in an easy-to-follow format. My specialities are literary fiction, “Nordic Noir”, Spanish and Latin American fiction and short stories.

Here are some ongoing features:

Rox Recommends
Mini reviews of the books I rate. I keep these write ups short. I am a fan of the brief notes you find sometimes in bookshops from the staff working there so this is simply an online version of that. Occasionally, I will publish longer reviews, particularly if the book has an interesting context such as Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald.

On Rox’s Radar
My monthly column. This will be a) practical – a look at what books are coming up that I plan to read or b) an opinionated rant discussion about the world of books.

Special Feature
Either interviews with insiders (publishers, agents, authors…) or an in-depth piece on a topical industry trend.

Reading Challenge
An annual challenge to get out of my comfort zone and read a list of books in a new genre.
