Jane V.

My Librarian Jane V.I used to be a big romance fan, but have expanded my horizons and moved onto contemporary romance, women’s fiction/chick lit and family dramas.  I enjoy a good psychological thriller every now and then and even some historical fiction and young adult, as long as it’s fast paced with not too much description. I enjoy reading children's picture books as well, I'm a sucker for great illustrations.

In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, especially the latest blockbuster hits.
