About Me

Who am I? 

My name is Vivian Taylor and I'm a dedicated reader...alright I'm an avid reader bordering on a manic reader. I enjoy reading from a variety of genres. My favorite genres include Legal Thrillers, Medical Thrillers, Mystery, Psychological Thrillers, Romantic Suspense, Suspense, Thrillers, Contemporary Fiction, Romance, and Classic Literature. I also enjoy reading nonfiction relating to aromatherapy, herbalism, perfumes and perfumery, tea, comparative religion, Islam, and Muslims.

I'm also a writer. I've written several informative booklets on Islam and Muslims, co-authored and edited books on Islamic parables, as well as authored numerous Islamic articles and reviews. Even though I've written quite a number of booklets, books, and magazine articles I remain, first and foremost, a devoted reader. (Islamic articles, booklets, etc. written and published under the names of Vivian bint Vondal Taylor, Vivian bint Joan Taylor, and Vivian Taylor-Ayoub.)

Why did I start this blog? 

I've read blogs by professionals and those with emphasis on one or two genres. I thought it would be interesting to start a blog for the basic reader by a basic reader. I was also tired of answering the questions what have you read lately and what did you think about what you've read lately? My reviews for books may be quite simple, but I'll try my best to let you know about the books I've enjoyed reading and why. So sit back, relax and read along with me...

Reading Recommendations?

Do you have a recommendation for me? If so, leave me a comment or email me at BookDivasReads[at]gmail[dot]com. I welcome your thoughts. (Note: If a book looks interesting it gets added to my ever-growing to-be-read [TBR] list, if not it gets added to my to-be-considered list and a few actually go to the definitely not list.)
