Kayla a fairly easy-going reader, and as a librarian, she needs to be pretty extensive. She reads children's literature, young adult, and adult books. Although she's reading mostly for her patron base, her favorite books have some sort of science fiction or fantasy element (hard core science fiction, space noir, epic fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal, dystopias, post-apocalyptic, fairy tale, horror, etc.), but she will and does read other genres. (She has been known to love mysteries and historical fiction.) Kayla alternates her reading frequently to avoid getting burned out on a genre. However, she does not read erotica. (I'm terribly sorry, but it gives me the giggles.) Kayla also does not review Christian fiction because she studies the history of religion as a part of her [never-ending] degree process, and she tends to veer away from that when she's reading for pleasure (and very few library patrons read it).
Some other things that you need to know:
- Hard copies take precedence, as they are read more quickly. If you would like, Kayla is happy to give away her review copy in a giveaway
- She can accept both epub and mobi files if a hard copy is unavailable. (Hey, I understand these things are expensive.)
- Kayla does not like to write DNF reviews. As a librarian, she does not want to bash a book, because someone else out there may like it. If she has a hard copy of your book for reviewing purposes and it is a DNF, she will pass it on to another blogger or give it away to a reader.
His books of preference are science fiction, epic fantasy, urban fantasy, zombie, post-apocalyptic, thriller, dystopian, and anything else along those lines. He mostly reads and reviews adult novels. He prefers mobi or PDF files and loves hard copies, but you would have to send them to Chile.
