Meet the Reviewers: Kate

Hi…Kate here from Musings of a Book Lover. As you might guess from the title of my blog, I love to read! I am never without a book, even while moving back to the States from England recently!

I am happy to review various types of novels. It almost seems easier to say what I don’t want to read (which would be Christian, erotica or vampires) than what I do… but I will list my favourite genres! My favourite would be Historical Fiction. I also enjoy contemporary, chick-lit, suspense and mystery. I love a book that will make me laugh! I got hooked on Young Adult a few years back, while passing books around with our three teenage daughters… and I still like reading those. I have recently started reading some steam-punk, and would like to see more of this. As to reading formats, I have a Kindle (which seems to make reading go more quickly!) but I also love the feeling of the weight of a book in my hands.

My all-time favourite book would be Persuasion by Jane Austen. I love the character of Anne…she doesn’t want to upset the apple cart, but she wants what is best for her. Plus, how she had loved one man for so many years, and was unwilling to settle. And Captain Wentworth is my personal favourite hero from Jane Austen’s books.

I am excited to be a part of this group and get a chance to read new books and up-and-coming authors! I will (almost) always review a book before moving on to the next…helps my monkey-brain keep track of what I have read, and keeps my thoughts clear.
