Tea and Biscuits Discussions: Religion and Romance Novels

Tea and Biscuits Discussions: Religion and Romance Novels

Lately, I have been thinking about this and so I decided to address this issue on why there is a lack of religion or spiritual aspects in romances. Now I grew up in a religious home and I consider myself to be a spiritual person. I also respect that there are many that don’t and that is cool. 🙂 But being spiritual gives me a certain purpose in life and I know many romance readers and bloggers and reviewers that feel that way as well. I guess I was also a bit spoiled when I was growing up. I am […]

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Winter Reads To Look Forward To

I can’t believe that we have entered into the month of November, and we are getting toward the end of my favorite season Fall…however there is much love for our next season WINTER. What is not to love? The cheery happy music, the warm and kind feelings everyone has toward each other (although wouldn’t it be nice if this was all year and just not around Christmas time??) And I just love reading those books that warm you up on a cold winters night, and I totally believe that some of the best books releases are normally in Winter so […]

Tea and Biscuits: Tribute To Miranda Neville

Tea and Biscuits: Tribute To Miranda Neville

I was shocked when checking my update feeder on Twitter to find out that a beloved author that I have adored for years has passed away. Miranda Neville has always been a major part of the romance novel industry for many years and I have had such a pleasure reading her, I have been reading her. and I have so much admiration for this beloved author. Now I find it very unfortunate that I never had the opportunity to actually meet this lady. She has such wit and grace and such a kind heart. I have only really interacted with […]

Tea and Biscuits: Book Discussions–Childhood Favorites

Normally I liked to talk about my romance love of books, however this week I want to take a step back and look at those books I loved when I was growing up. Now I will be honest, this list is short. I was never a huge fan of reading when I was a kid, I just wanted to go and play outside. However there were a few that I have some strong fond memories of and there are times I wish I could go back to being so young and innocent again. 🙂 Now there are some more popular […]

Tea and Biscuits: Finally Fall Book Tag

There is so much to love about fall, and even though I am in Texas now instead of Utah (where Fall is just gorgeous) I love the cooler weather, I love being surrounded by pumpkins and baked apples and the whole feel of fall. It just gives me the happy feels. I found this tag at An Infinite Book World and so excited to share my picks.  In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting! There is something very unique about this book, but this story has such a clear and crisp setting […]

There was a article that came out at the end of September and it was BIG news for the romance book community. It was on the front page, featured images of some of our favorite romances and authors.

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Sign Up of “Why I Read Romance”

Posted September 18, 2017 by Loverofromance in Tea and Biscuits Discussions / 17 Comments

I decided to join in with this challenge by Parajunkee because there is nothing I love more than a good romance. I feel like its important to show why we love romance and all the good things about a romance novel. Especially lately I have been wanting to show the world why romance needs to be taken way more seriously. Its one of those genres that many people act like they should be ashamed of or is “dirty”, or something to hide from the world. I used to feel that way, but years ago when I started this blog, I […]

There is quite a many books that are underrated on Goodreads, that are some of the best books I have ever read. I tend to be the type of person to not go crazy over the super hyped books.

Those special romances that I believe needs a shout out of their own. Books that will pull you in and books you won’t be able to put down. Stories that […]

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: Couples Who Rise Above Adversity

One of the main things that I truly love about reading a romance, is seeing the couple rise above challenges that they are faced with and WIN in the end. I mean who doesn’t right? There is just something so satisfying in seeing the complexities of life come at a man and woman and seeing their strengths, their growths and even their weaknesses evolve into strengths in the end, in ways that you don’t see coming. I think what is truly wonderful is seeing all the varieties of challenges that a couple can face and seeing them rise above it, […]

Tea and Biscuits: Books I Read Before Blogging

So have you ever wondered what books made me fall in love before I ever started a blog.I was lucky enough, that I had been reading for about five years  before I actually started a blog. This period in my life was pretty much the best when it came to reading romance. Not saying that I don’t love reading my passion and romance filled stories now, but without having a blog, there was something more about reading back then. I was less distracted from running a blog, I had less going on, only had school to worry about. I had […]

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussions: The Month of Romance Appreciation

August is the national celebration for celebrating the love of romance and that makes it my favorite month of the year, although I don’t know about y’all but every day of the year I celebrate my love of romance. However considering that I have loved romance for years…I just realized that August was the national month to celebrate my love of this genre especially in books. What makes reading a wonderfully written romance so fantastic and well worth the read? What makes you fall in love right along with those characters? What’s not to love about seeing our beloved men […]

Tea and Biscuits Discussions: POV’s To Love

When it comes to reading fiction, authors have to be careful in how they choose what point of view they want to put in a story because having a certain POV can either make or break a story for their readers. Each point of view has its advantages and disadvantages. I don’t think that any of them are bad in any way, it just depends on the story and how the author wants it to effect the experience of their readers. Because each point of view can really change how you look at a book. Now I will be honest, […]

Tea and Biscuits Book Discussion: It’s Okay To Interact With Authors

Since I started blogging over seven years ago, I have grown and changed quite a bit. Lately I have been looking over what I have accomplished as a book blogger and what my future goals are for the future. How do I want to keep active in the blogging community? To not be the average run of the mill blog? When I first started blogging, I had NO CLUE what I was doing boys and girls. Honestly, I made so many mistakes and if I ever offended you in any way, I do apologize. I hope I never have. But […]
