About Me

My name is Courtney. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, and am currently working on my Master’s in Library and Information Science. As you can imagine, I love books, libraries, and am fascinated with history. I enjoy reading historical fiction and romance, as well as some epic fantasy.

Genres I review: Historical romance, epic fantasy romance, historical fiction. Will try to occasionally do contemporary and paranormal/urban fantasy romance, but as these are not my preferred genres, posts on these will be rare.

Note on format: I almost always review the print edition, unless I state otherwise. I do not review ebook-exclusive works. I don’t usually review audiobooks, except in circumstances where I am able to obtain a copy.
