In the over 20 years I've been reviewing books, my reading preferences have changed, as you'll see from my list of reviews. I went from historical romance to contemporary romance to romantic suspense to sci-fi/fantasy to my current fave - mystery/suspense/thriller. I used to be game for just about anything, but I've gotten more set in my ways lately. One thing hasn't changed - my love of reading.
