The #RBRT Reviewer Profiles – Cathy Ryan @CathyRy #MondayBlogs

Rosie's Book Review team 1

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.

Reading Soft edge

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.

  1. Hello again, Cathy 😀 😀
    It’s interesting to see what genres appear over and over as people’s favourites and not so favourites. Seems that most of the books we get are of the popular genres – which might mean that writers are investigating the blog a bit first, which is all good!
    I am getting more and more nervous about the length of mine… :/ :O !!

  2. Cathy, you are very much like me and will try anything once and go from there and it is amazing what you come across if you have that attitude I think. Lovely to find out more of your likes and dislikes 🙂

    Terry – stop worrying, there’s nothing wrong with being different – it’s never done me any harm – haha!
