The Book Decoder


Hi, I am Rekha and Welcome to my book blog – The Book Decoder.

I love to read books of various genres. I am going to be a bit partial here and say that my favourite genre is crime and mystery. I usually prefer classics or cozies. Hard-boiled crimes are just not up to my liking.


How to navigate through my blog

You can click on Home to read my latest posts.

If you are looking for a specific genre, then go to Book Reviews and select Genre from the drop-down list.

If you are looking for a specific book series, then go to Book Reviews and select series from the drop-down list. Then click on Crime and Mystery, Cozy Mysteries or Crime Classics and find the series that you are looking for.

Misc. contains Book Recommendations and Author Interviews.

I actively participate in blog tours. If you want to have a look at the books I have toured so far, then click here.

Reading Challenges takes you to the challenges that I am currently participating in. I host the British Crime Classics Challenge.
