She's here!

I have seen this woman all over the web and have the honor of having her as my friend. Soooo, I'm proud to announce book reviewer Phoebe Jordan to our blog!

Why did you decide to be a romance reviewer?

Actually I just loved reading romance novels of various sub-genres that I kept learning more about with each passing year and it wasn't until the beginning of 2008 that I really started to find out that there was a whole world out there for romance readers. I started a blog with where I would start posting about the books that I had recently read. But then I got into networking with other romance readers and found that I might want to start blogging about the books I read with other romance readers. That is how I started my review blog Talk About My Favorite Authors but after a while I found that the readers I chose to join me were a bit too busy for blogging even about the books they've read. So I made out to be a romance reviewer since authors starting contacting me about reading and reviewing their novels because they saw that I've read a lot of books.

What sparks your interest in a book?

Since I was a child my mother use to read so many books to me but it wasn't until my aunt gave me the first three books in the Harry Potter series when I was 10 years old that I really got into reading books for the pleasure and not necessity of doing it for school. When I was in junior high school is when I started reading adult mystery novels for fun and Tami Hoag was the author who I happened to have chosen. Then it wasn't until I was about to start high school that I found out about romance novels with Catherine Coulter's Warrior Song and Nora Roberts' Three Fates. And as they would say the rest is history.

Do you have any pet peeves in books?

I don't know exactly but I think one of my pet peeves when reading a book is that there isn't a satisfying happily ever after when I'm done with the novel. That really ticks me off because I'm a romantic at heart and I want to see hero and heroine happy together.

What is the best book you've read this year?

Hmm...that is a really, really hard question to answer because I've read so many fantastic books this year and don't know if I could ever make up my mind with just one. So I'm going to have to disappoint you and say there are too many to chose from and I can't make up my mind.

Where can readers find you?

Well I'm on various networks for romance readers and writers so here are some of them:

Wow, Wendy. It's great to be here today on Wicked Thorn and Roses. I've been following this blog almost since it started and though I haven't left comments I enjoy reading the blog posts.

I'm honored to be here though if there are any comments posted on here after today I might not be able to get to them. I'm going on my family vacation tomorrow and will be gone for 6 days. I'll be taking a tan in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic with most of my immediate family. I'm really excited and very giddy to be taking my first trip out of the United States.

Thanks in advance to anyone who leaves me a comment.

Phoebe Jordan, blog author of Talk About My Favorite Authors.
