Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author

 

Elaine White is the author of multi-genre MM romance, celebrating 'love is love' and offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.

Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. She lives vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, exploring all possibilities within the romantic universe.

The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) Elaine is a self-professed geek, reading addict, and a romantic at heart.

 

The Reviewer

 

I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Facts About Me: My 2018 TBR

I have LOADS of books on my TBR list for 2018. This post will feature some of the paperbacks and e-books that I've purchased over the years, that I really want to actually get read. I spent good money on buying them, but I always prioritise those that I've agreed to review and never seem to make time for those that I paid money for. Which seems kind of ridiculous. So, 2018 is my year of catching up on the ones I was desperate to read, paid for, and never got round to.

Of course, there will be a mountain of solo novels that I want to read, but since 2018 is my year of catching up, I plan to do the series books first. There are a lot of comics that I also want to read, since I've been buying quite a few Humble Bundle's ever since I discovered the site last year. Plus, comics are great for fitting in when you don't have a lot of time. A comic of 150 pages can be read in just half an hour, thanks to the fact that all the world building and detail is put into the illustrations, so you can fit in a whole lot of comics in a short time than you can short stories or novels.
