Contact me + A sort-of Review Policy


So you've found my blog! Welcome!

A little bit more about me:
I read historical romance novels almost exclusively all year round. I especially love reading debut novels of new authors. ^_^

I started this blog because I want to keep track of all the romance novels I've read (and because I ran out of space in my moleskine journal.)

I studied literature in university and took some MA subjects also in literature. (I have a soft spot for Shakespeare. Also for Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson.)

I read romance novels as a teenager and had to slowly give it up when the classics and texts discussing literary and critical theory got in the way.

I got back to reading romances after I had my first child and I needed something light to read -- I did attempt to read Salman Rushdie's Fury: A Novel in between breastfeeding and changing diapers ... and it wasn't much fun and I kept forgetting previous chapters!

The first books I re-read were my old copies of Julie Garwood and Judith McNaught.

It's been 6 years and 2 children -- and stacks upon stacks of romance novels. And I've enjoyed every word, every page and every minute of it.

Would you like me to write a review for you?
Be forewarned that I am a slow reader and cannot guarantee a definite date for a written review. (Although, on average, I can finish a book in 3 to 4 days.)

I also only read historical romances and historical erotic romances. (Well, I actually read 3 paranormal series: by Amanda Quick, by Isabel Cooper and by Sophie Renwick.)

I am an international reader/reviewer so the best format would be e-books. (Kindle, iBooks, through Netgalley or Edelweiss)

A note on my reviews:
I don't do ratings on my blog but I post star ratings as required by Goodreads and Amazon and I follow the Goodreads and Amazon rating system.

I also write honestly and will say if I didn't like the book. (I post negative reviews and have posted 1- and 2-star reviews.) And I also write about books that I did not/could not finish reading aka DNFs.

After all the caveats, if you are still interested, you can email me (click the link for my email address) with your details.

  1. Hi Tin! I just gave your blog an award! I love your blog and I thought you deserved it :) You can see it at Happy Reading :)

  2. Tin, have you read Pamela Clare's MacKinnon Ranger series? It's one of my favorite historical romance series.

  3. Hi, Jennifer!

    I haven't read Pamela Clare. I think I have one of her ebooks but I've never had the chance to read her.

    Thank you for the recommendation -- I'll check out this series. ^_^

    Have a great day!

  4. What a kind and generous review of Jilting the Duke! Thank you so much for your thoughtful attention to the many things I tried to do in that book. As a debut author, I very much appreciate your review; as a writer, I appreciate your own lovely sentences.
