Follow Friday April 15

Happy Follow Friday everyone!  This is hosted by parajunkee. Each week a different blog is featured. This weeks featured blog is........

Marie and Brie @ Romance Around the Corner

A little about our featured Bloggers...........
Our names are Marie and Brie, and we both are behind Romance Around the Corner. We divided the responsibility of telling you about our blog and so Brie wrote the first paragraph and Marie the second one.

We met a long time ago on the first day of college, and we have been best friends ever since. Every time we saw each other we talked about the books we were reading, I recommended a new author to her, she recommended one to me, and that’s pretty much all we talked about, well, besides gossips and men -and Brad Pitt cheating on Jennifer Anniston (I told you we met a long time ago)-. Now Marie is overseas and we decided to start the blog mostly as a way to keep with the tradition of talking about books (and because Marie just couldn’t live without me and was really sad and depressed, I’m that great!), also because I’ve been a blog stalker for years and I like reading reviews almost as much as I love reading the books, and we always wanted to participate in the romance community as more than silent readers.
Well, I think to remember things a bit differently, Brie nagged at me until I agreed to do the blog (to be honest it didn’t take that much convincing for me to agree), anyway. What we are trying to do with our Blog is write the type of reviews that we like to read, we explain why we love a book or why it didn’t work for us. We are fans of romance, we particularly love happy endings and steamy sex scenes (although I have read my fair share of books with bittersweet endings). In our Blog you are going to find reviews about everything that has some romance in it: Contemporary, Paranormal, YA, Women’s Fiction, Erotica, Historical, Suspense, GBLT and everything in between. We do have our preferences, Brie loves Contemporary and Erotica and I love pretty much everything, but if I had to choose one subgenre it would be Romantic Suspense, and YA, and Paranormal, and Comedy, Brie says that I’m a book’s garbage disposal because I’ll read and like pretty much anything, I guess she’s right! 

This weeks Question is:    

Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

My answer: 
Yes I do! One of my besties is one of the operators of Pageturner blog     
Pixie and I have been friends since high school and she is the reason I am an avid reader .   
She is the mother of four kids one of which has autism, she shares her love of reading with her kids as well as anyone who will listen. She and I tend to have the same view points on the books we read with the exception of twilight she is a wolf girl and I am a SOUTHERN vampire girl.    

Happy Following and have a good weekend!!!!!
