About the Romance Blogger
This is hard, I don’t usually like to talk about myself…But here goes nothing… I’m a book loving introvert, who loves sharing her obsession with books (romance in particular). I speak English, Spanish, and French. I have two cute pets that are my children (a dog called Homero and a precious kitty who is planning to murder me when I sleep, called Shiru). I work as a Freelancer writing creative content, doing some header designs and photo editing, as well as some Translation work. Sorry if this “about me” is a little on the hectic side but that’s pretty much who I am… a little chaotic mind, who loves reading, blogging, and just getting to know new people.
Ezrah: Michelle, it’s great getting to know you!
Where You Can Find Me
First Romance Book I Read
I must have been 11 years old when I read my first official romance novel, It was one of those Harlequin books. My Grandma used to love those and she shared her love of romance novels with me, it was something we did together.. and it stuck until this day.
Ezrah: I first read a Harlequin Historical when I was 11, too!
Favorite Romance Genre/s
I’m a twisted little thing when it comes to what I like to read… I love Dark Romance (MC, Mafia, that kind of thing) But I like just as much my Paranormal romances and my college sports romance as well… It’s really hard to pick just one…
Ezrah: I’ve been reading a lot of PNR and Dark Romance lately!
Favorite Romance Trope/s
Enemies to Lovers, Forbidden, Fake Dating, Friends to Lovers, Second Chance
Top Auto-buy Authors
Okay, let me narrow it down as best as I can, Penelope Douglas, J.R. Ward, Tillie Cole, Elle Kennedy, Mia Sheridan…but there are so much more…
Ezrah: I know it’s hard to pick just FIVE!

Favorite Quote from a Romance Book

~Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Favorite Thing About the Romance Community
The people, I have made some great friends here in the book blogging community and of course the awesome recommendations we give each other… just being able to talk about that favorite character or that plot twist that drove you nuts… it’s great.
Romance Myth that You Hate
Romance is stupid… I hate when people degrade romance books like that, just like with any other genre we have our good and bad books but that doesn’t mean that they are all stupid or shallow. In fact, portraying emotion and letting them shine through the page it’s a truly hard feat. It’s not something everyone can accomplish.
Ezrah: Absolutely! Romance always gets a bad rap!
