It’s such an awesome experience interviewing blogger and reviewer Isabelle. In her blog, she features reviews of books she reads and promotes authors she likes. If you’re looking for a site with different contents every now and then, I recommend you check hers out!
Tell us about you and your blog. Where can we read it?
In my blog I review books, I promote authors and books that I like and I have some giveaways and/or blog hops going on.

What got you started as a m/m blogger or reviewer?
Because I live in Brazil, but I read books in English, I don’t have friends to talk about books and get recommendations. So, looking for tips of new books, new authors of the romance genre I found Goodreads and I started to appreciate book reviews. After that, I felt the need to share my opinions with others and decided to have my own blog to post reviews of the books that I was reading.
Why are you passionate about reading and reviewing m/m books?
I love reading! It’s my favorite hobby. I read between five to six books a week and I would like to believe that my reviews have helped others in deciding to read or not a certain book.
Many of my readers love reading m/m blogs but what makes yours unique compared to others?
That’s a tough question. I’m very new at blogging and admirer so many bloggers out there, that I don’t think I could compare my blog to theirs. I guess, my blog is unique, because I’m Brazilian, and I guess I bring my culture, into my “voice” within my reviews.
Define success as a m/m blogger and reviewer.
For me, to have one person say that my review has helped her choose a book, I’ve been successful.
What are some of the best m/m books you’ve read this year?
I read three books that I believe had the best M/M scenes that I’ve read this year. Blood Knot by Tracey Cooper Posey is an M/M/F ménage; Make Me by Alyssa Turner another M/M/F ménage and Shifting Currents by Lissa Trevor that has an amazing M/M scene inside a moving train. Hot!
What advice can you give to aspiring m/m reviewers and bloggers?
Enjoy what you do, and always be kind! Even when we don’t like a book, we can be kind; not by giving a rating that doesn’t deserve, but by being polite when you point out what you have dislike about the book.
