Read My Valentine


I’ve mentioned many times that I’m a sucker for a reading challenge and I have especially loved the themed challenges Carl has run at Stainless Steel Droppings. There’s Once Upon A Time for fantasy from March until June. There’s Readers Imbibing at Peril for dark fantasy, supernatural and horror over the Halloween period. And there’s The Sci-fi Experience over December and January. These challenges pretty much cover all of my favourite genres except one: romance.

The way to my heart is through my books. For our tenth anniversary, I talked my sweetheart out of buying me a diamond ring and into buying me a Kindle (best decision ever. I don’t know what I’d do without my Kindle!). I’ve got my fingers crossed for books instead of chocolates for Valentine’s Day. So to clear some space on Mt TBR in preparation and to plug the gap in my themed reading challenges, I’ll be spending February reading and reviewing romance novels. I already have some Regency romance and some fantasy romance lined up. I even have a contemporary romance to try out.
