Hello - and welcome! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Tanya and if you're here you must love books and reading as much as I do.
Since part of the joy of reading comes from sharing what you've read and talking about it with others (and I can only torture my husband with talk of fictional characters for so long), Girl Plus Books was born. The title is pretty appropriate because the fact is, you'll rarely find me without a book in hand.
As a lifelong avid reader, my tastes may have changed over the years but some things remain constant: my love for a great story, well-written characters that I can't help but fall for, some swoon-worthy romance (some steamy moments never hurt), and a little angst for good measure. One of my favorite things is finding those book gems that gives all the feels - romance that makes my heart melt, sexytimes that make my heart race, emotional moments that make my heart hurt, laugh out loud moments, scenes that put a smile on my face, and ultimately, a story that stays with me long after the book has ended.
I read new adult, young adult and some adult fiction with my favorite genres being contemporary romance and paranormal romance. I do branch out but those are my favorites. I love original plots, romance, alpha males (bonus if he's angsty with a tortured soul) and I don't mind a well done love triangle. I really dislike spoilers, insta-love and overdone plot devices, particularly plots that are based on one big misunderstanding that could have been solved with a single conversation if the characters had just talked. Gah!
But even more than all that, I love to talk about books with others. So if you like what you see here I hope you'll subscribe and come back often and comment. I'd love to hear what you have to say!
