If you could travel to one historical period, when would it be?
I think I would want to travel to ancient times and go to Egypt. I would love to see the ancient cities as they were, especially the pyramids and temples.
What drew you to your favorite genre initially?
I originally started reading historical romances when I was a teenager. I found Lynsay Sands highland series and loved them so I checked out her other books and came across the Argeneau series. This was the start of my fascination with vampire romances which lead to my love of paranormal romances.
Who are your top 5 authors?
Anna Hackett, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Shelly Laurenston/G.A. Aiken, and Donna Grant
What do you think was the most overhyped book of 2020?
I think my most overhyped book this year was The Sinner by J.R. Ward. Ward’s books always get a lot of hype but this one just did not hold up for me.
Which book was not hyped up enough in your opinion?
Two books immediately came to mind: The Matriarch by Annebelle McInnes and High Heat by Annabeth Albert. The Matriarch comes out Monday and I have only seen the author promoting it. I received an ARC through Netgalley and loved it from the first chapter. Also the ebook is only $0.99 so go check it out.
High Heat was amazing and emotional. Alberts always does an amazing job with her books and I highly recommend this book. I saw some hype when the book came out but not as much as I expected there to be.
Who is your favorite villain?
I can’t think of a book villain that is my favorite so I will go with my favorite villain from a movie. Hades.
How do you organize your bookshelves?
Alphabetically by author’s last name.
Hardcovers or paperbacks?
What is your favorite cover of the year?
There have been a lot of great covers this year. Here are my top three because I couldn’t choose just one.
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve used as a bookmark?
I usually use a bookmark but I have occasionally used scraps of fabric that I had laying around because it was convenient.
Which upcoming 2020 release are you most excited about?
Almost all the books I was excited for this year have already came out but Burning the Books: A History of the Deliberate Destruction of Knowledge by Richard Ovenden comes out in November. I have this book preordered and am excited to read it.
