Happy Wednesday, Wormies! Welcome to another Read a Romance Blog feature! Today, we’re featuring T @ Readaholic Book Reviews!
Read a Romance Blog series is a feature on this blog showcasing book bloggers that primarily review romance.
About the Romance Blogger
I’ve always loved reading, but it wasn’t until I was in my early twenties that I really started to fall in love with reading and was actively seeking out the next book to read. It was around the same time that I fell in love with the romance genre. I’ve been reading romance for almost twenty years now and I don’t see myself tiring of it anytime soon!
I started my own blog after being active on bookstagram for about a year. Since then my love of reading and writing reviews has grown and I truly love meeting new friends and bonding over discussing books and reading reviews.
When I’m not reading, I am a mommy to two young kiddos. My daughter G is 8 and my son J is 3. I enjoy binge-watching Netflix shows, baking and working as a pharmacist.
Where You Can Find Me
First Romance Book I Read
The first romance book I ever read was The Reef by Nora Roberts. I was in college (probably in my early 20’s) and a co-worker let me borrow her book. I immediately fell in love. Prior to that, I had always read thrillers and even then I was always gravitating towards the romance in those books. I went on a huge Nora Roberts binge after that!
Ezrah: I have noticed a lot of my guests here for the Read a Romance Blog feature said that they were introduced to romance by Queen Nora! I admit to not having read her yet.
Favorite Romance Genre/s
I absolutely love contemporary romance, but in recent years have also fallen in love with historical romance too.
Ezrah: I am so happy that you have started reading historical romance!
Favorite Romance Trope/s
Love Love Love enemies-to-lovers but also love a great second-chance romance too.
Ezrah: I really love second-chance romance! It’s one of my favorite go-to tropes!

Favorite Quote from a Romance Book
” ‘I’m messed up, Poppy. I think there are parts of me that can’t be fixed.’ Loving this man isn’t going to be easy, but I still want to try.
‘I don’t need to fix you, Lance. I’ll take you as you are. I just want you to be happy.’ “
– Pucked Off by Helena Hunting
Favorite Thing About the Romance Community
How sweet and caring everyone is! I never thought that I would find other book lovers that loved romance as much as I do, but I did through bookstagram! I have made so many genuine friendships over our shared love of books and it’s been so special to me. Also – I love adding books to my TBR pile!! It’s never-ending now 🙂
Ezrah: I know what you mean! The romance community is very welcoming!
Romance Myth that You Hate
I hate the notion that romances are “dirty” or “mommy porn.” I could do without anyone ever shaming readers based on the genre of book that they’re reading. I love getting lost in the world of my books and it shouldn’t matter if it’s a romance or a thriller.
Ezrah: I absolutely hate the term “mommy porn!” I may not love all of the romance books ever written and some of the other tropes/sub-genres, but I never shame anyone for loving them!
