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.
