Blog Tour for Fear Nothing by Amber Malloy

 

What you read as a teenager is probably not what you
read as an adult. When did this change and what have you noticed in your
reading list that is different?
 
Although I was mostly into horror books as a
teenager, I rarely read that genre anymore. Don’t get me wrong I still like a
good scare, it’s just that no one has elevated past the initial bumps in the
night which enamored me as a teen. The
Shining, Carrie, Ghost Story, Watchers, Phantoms
—these books were eye
opening thrills for someone on the cusp of adulthood. Romance wasn’t really my
thing; a few Danielle Steel books here and there mixed in with some Catherine
Coulter were tossed into my TBR list. However, my problem with the genre at the
time was mostly the women were damsels in distress. Since my mind doesn’t work
that way, I stuck with the creatures under the bed. 
 
Around college a shift happened where suspense
became my main focus—dominant women who had to hunt down the killer before the
maniac turned the tables and hunted them. These books were fun to read, and my
feminism card was never called into question. Unfortunately, the backdrop was
always dim. Wallowing around in the darkness of suspense took a toll on my
imagination, which forced me to find lighter fare. I stumbled upon Nora
Roberts, Jennifer Cruise, and Susan Elizabeth Phillips. These masters of
romance don’t do victims. Instead, they do fierce women in screwed up
situations. I can deal with that more so than the chick who needs to be saved.
A lot of historicals use this device, since real history wasn’t so hip to
women’s lib it was just easier to put the heroine in the hands of a strong buck
of a man.
 
As of late my reading list has taken another
shift—kick ass witches, werewolf shifters, and a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like who
doubles as a detective. I must need a good laugh because all these books are
light and fun and not one damsel in distress. Don’t get me wrong, if any of my
horror peeps put out a new book I’ll be the first in line. If Beverly Jenkins
decides to give me a feisty heroine in an era that didn’t have working plumbing
I’m there. My reading list is ever-changing and I am open to almost anything. 
 
The one thing I know for sure is I will never give up on a quick thinking
women.
