This is the very first time I decided to participate on the Follow Friday.
Since my blog is very new, I am still learning about the whole blogging and html thing. Hopefully it will work out and that it will become a tradition on my blog, too.

I guess that most of you who read book blogs are familiar with what this Follow Friday is about. Nevertheless, couple of words about it.
Every Friday you have the possibility to hop from one blog to another. It is a lot of fun and you can find many interesting blogs to read and to follow. On most of the blogs there is linky link which you can enter your blog link, but I still need to learn how to add it :) I will try to do it as fast as possible.

It is hosted by Parajunkee's View:




On each Follow Friday there is also a featured book blog. This week it is Romance Around the Corner. Go and check out their wonderfully designed blog!!

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!



Question of the week is:
Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.


My answer would be that yes, I have. I have to admit that I like to discuss books with my friends, both with friends I have online all over the world and with friends who are close to me in real life.
The difference is that not all my friends are so up-to-date with all the books I have read, but it only gives me pleasure to tell them about new authors I have discovered and new books I have read. It also dependes on the genre, because people might have very different tastes when it comes to books.

Feel free to leave comment and also follow my blog!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the compliment! :)

    In response to your question, the Nook and NookColor are ereaders made by Barnes & Noble and I have the color one which also serves as a tablet. You can get online with it and play chess or listen to Pandora on it and save MP3s on it as well or convert movies to a different format you can watch on one as well! They're pretty neat and I certainly love mine. :) Thanks for asking!
