Hi! You've found my blog, welcome! Just a quick introduction, my name is Van and I started Short & Sweet Reviews in August 2011 as a way to share my thoughts on what I was reading and to connect with other book lovers like myself. I live in California and when I'm not reading I'm usually spending my time with my friends and family...discovering and trying new things. 

My go-to genre is Urban Fantasy, but I also enjoy reading Speculative Fiction and Mysteries.

Some of my favorite authors are:

Ilona Andrews, who are a husband and wife team. They are known for their Kate Daniel series and if you haven't read this series yet, what are you waiting for?! This is a MUST have for all UF fans.

Richelle Mead, I love all of her books both her adult and young adult fiction.

Seanan McGuire, author of the October Daye novels. This is a brilliant, top-notch faerie series. No one does world buliding like she does!

Rachel Vincent, author of the Shifter series and Soul screamer series.

Kelly Gay, author of the UF Charlie Madigan series, Heaven and Hell never looked so good!

Also  Jenn Bennett, Gini Koch, Jaye Wells, Patricia Briggs, Suzanne McLeod, Karen Marie Moning...to name a few. To see some of my favorite series/authors, click the "Favorite Series" tab at the top of the page.
