About The Tale Temptress

Hello! The Tale Temptress here. As a writer myself, I have a huge love of books that causes me to drop a ton of money on them regularly. Since I'm reading them, it seems only fair to share my finds with others.

Although I love all genres of fiction, I'm not so much a John Grisham-y kind of gal. I love romance, fantasy, and Young/New Adult being at the top of the list.

How did this happen? Well, I started reading them about the time the first Twilight movie came out.  I loved that series so much I thought, "hey, why not see if there are other YA books I like just as well as these?" Guess what? There were!

I've found the YA/NA genre to be a virtual sea of excellent writing, wonderful authors and unique storylines that I never expected. I feel as if YA ignores the "rules" somewhat, and I admire that. The books, while primarily being about young protagonists, offers something to all age groups. A common misconception a lot of adults may have about teen books is that they are somehow "dumbed down" or simplified due to the fact they are for a younger audience. Sorry, anyone who has ever had a teenage kid (of which I have two) can tell you there's nothing dumb about a teenager. They're slicker than snot and sharp as a tack. Enough cliches for you?

If you have any suggestions for this blog, feel free to contact me via email and let me know! Although, like any other blogger, I love comments too!  Every blogger loves their comments.

Please comment to the posts! Tell me what you like and don't like. If you have a suggestion for a book you'd like to see reviewed, let me know that too. Happy reading!!
