About Me Favorite Romance Novels

I have always loved a good romance, I started off my reading teen Victorian classics by Meg Cabot and then I delved deeper into reading Young Adult romances and later on more adult romances as I continued through high school. I rarely read explicitly romance novels until I came into college. I am about to graduate college and I will be moving back home to Maryland and hopefully finding a job in my field. I enjoy writing, being barefoot and watching movies.

Absolute Favorite

Summer Sisters Judy Blume

Favorite Classic

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Personal Reading Tastes Favorites by Sub-Genre

What I’m a sucker for in a book: I am a sucker for friends who become more, a good romantic kissing scene, books set in New England, coming of age books, magical realism.

What I don’t particularly care for in a book: I dislike authors who write very similar characters in every novel, weak female characters, misogynistic antagonists.

What drives me absolutely nuts in a book: Little plot in between sex scenes
