Reviewers on the #RBRT are very busy hard working people who give their time freely, so I thought it was about time readers had the chance to meet them and find out a bit more about them.

Hobbies &interests? My hobbies and interests include blogging and book reviews – obviously 😉 – walking, photography, theatre, music and my dog.
I asked, “What new genres have you tried from the review team list?”
I’ve chosen more contemporary women’s fiction that I would normally, also post apocalyptic/horror.
“What genres make you step out of your comfort zone?”
Straight chick lit/romance, without another element such as paranormal or crime. High epic fantasy is another genre I’m not comfortable with.
“What do you look for in a book?”
Empathy with the characters is a must, they must have depth as well. If I can’t like characters the book falls flat. Also believable dialogue and a good plot which leads in unexpected directions.
“Book Styles you don’t enjoy?”
I can’t actually think of a book style I don’t enjoy, so far anyway! If I had to choose one it would probably be epic dramas.
“Do you read & review Non-Fiction?”
I may read a non fiction book very occasionally but I don’t review them.
