Today I have the chance to introduce you to Faye. Another of the new reviewers who are helping me review for this site.
Each reviewer I am adding will have different tastes in the types of books they enjoy reading and the content level they are comfortable with.
Faye enjoys reading Young Adult book with or without romance, clean romance and urban fantasy.
Faye has this to say about the types of books she enjoys and her review style:
I’m not big on vulgar, explicit or X-rated books regardless of the genre I’m reading. I like romantic emotions not sexual lust in my romance books. I don’t mind curse words when its not all the time. I’m more annoyed with the phrase “rolling her eyes” used over and over again than a curse word used over and over again. Usually I don’t divulge so much of a plot in my reviews, but more on who I think will like it and why. I don’t mind reading reviews that give a plot summary, but I feel that they can read the book description for that. So I try to give more info on things that might enjoy a reader or annoy a reader.

Watching movies are a close second to reading and when I’m not doing either you can usually find me dabbling in the arts, playing with my pets, puttering around on the computer or enjoying a beautiful sunset with my boyfriend. I grew up reading fairy tales, paranormal young adult, clean romance and some books with mystery, suspense and horror mixed in. I love fairy tale retellings and can’t help take home books based on that premise. I’m in my mid-thirties and became disabled in my mid-twenties. I have designed and developed websites since almost the dawning of the internet, photographed professionally and have volunteered with animal rescue groups. I love nature, getting lost in a good book or movie and being happy and content with loved ones.
