Happy Labor Day!
I’ll be raising a glass to Rosie later on in the day! Join me, won’t you? But before our celebrations start… a few announcements. First, we have a new reviewer at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words. Please welcome Free Dreamer. Her reviews should start to appear by the end of the month. Another reviewer looks to be coming on board as well. More on that later. Now watch me do the happy dance as Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words expands once more.
Here is a small part of her bio:
“Hey there! My name’s Free Dreamer. I’m in my early twenties, I live in Vienna and recently started working in a book shop. I’m not a native speaker, but I lived close to London for about 10 months, so English very much feels like a second mother tongue.
I love my books to be dark and gritty. My favourite M/M author is Cornelia Grey, amongst others. I’m not easily squicked and I like books with plenty of plot outside the romance. So I really like Fantasy and Sci-Fi/Dystopian books. Though I do enjoy the occasional contemporary story and historical romance set in Asia. Basically, I’ll read pretty much anything, as long as it’s not full of teeth-rotting fluff or PWP.
Outside of M/M my favourite author is Brandon Sanderson. Should I ever have the honour of meeting him in person, I shall fall to my knees and declare him God of Fantasy. I’m not a typical romance reader, so I very rarely read M/F Romance. Mostly, I stick to Fantasy, Sci-Fi and the occasional historical novel set in China or Japan.”
