Just wanted to inform you all that I will be joined by two other readers in providing reviews. As you are aware, Senetra contributes to the TBR Challenge on a monthly basis already but she will also be providing the occasional review from her own library of books and Scarlett Moore from BestFantasyStories.com will be providing us with urban fantasy reviews on a monthly basis.
As for myself, I am focusing more on mystery reviews with a preference for those with a romantic subplot (but not required) versus straight romance reviews. Actually, that’s a not a new announcement. I love romance and there is a little of everything for everybody. But lately for me, I find myself impatient with the existent trends that are currently popular right now – vampires, werewolves and were-creatures of every variation accompanied by characters who are trained assassins or bounty hunters. Don’t even get me started on the historicals and straight contemporaries. Not for me right now.
I think I am still tied to the past when the golden age of romance had authors like Judith McNaught, Mary Balogh, Laura Kinsale and Judith Ivory (all historical romance writers) among others cranking out hits one after the other (or so it seemed). Don’t get me wrong, I look forward to reading new authors everyday and I am especially excited about Meredith Duran and her next two historical novels (yes, I will be reading and reviewing those as well). There will always be the exceptions of course for writers whose work I already read will always be reviewed here.
Well, that’s it. I just wanted to inform you of the semi-new changes. If you’ve read this blog on a regular basis, you already know I read just about everything under the sun and I will continue to do that. It’s kind of hard to label my blog anything because it doesn’t have a central theme but as the title suggests: I am an avid book reader because I love reading genre fiction (so unoriginal). With that said, I will close this topic now and say thank you to those who visit this blog on a regular basis even when it’s not updated daily. I hope to continue to bring new and talented authors to your attention. Thanks.
