Hello, I’m Jillian Quinn, romance author and book blogger extraordinaire. Welcome to my Rant and Rave About Books blog!
Like The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, I was born and raised in Philadelphia, which is why I set all of my books in the City of Brotherly Love. I recently moved to Cape Coral, Florida where it’s always hot and sunny, unlike Philadelphia. Now, I like to read by the pool and pretend that it’s still normal to drink hot chocolate when it’s 90 degrees and humid outside.
As a writer, of course, I love reading. Every writer should be an avid reader. I think the two go hand-in-hand. On average, I read anywhere from five to fifteen books per month. Some weeks, I read that many within a few days, depending on my schedule. I mostly gravitate toward young adult and new adult novels that have a romantic or fantasy element to them, but I also like contemporary fiction, crime, suspense, mystery, and horror.
I’m the author of CORRUPT ME, a new adult mafia romance set in Philadelphia that was inspired by The Godfather. My second book, PARKER, is the first novel in the Face-Off hockey romance series and was released on Valentine’s Day. My third novel, TEACH, is the first book in the City of Sinners Series of taboo novellas, and first up, is my smutty student-professor story.

I love reading books that will make me look under my bed before I go to sleep, books that take me to faraway fantasy worlds, books with lots of adorable romance and kissing, and almost any book that deals with a tough subject like addiction or abuse. I’m also a big fan of John Grisham and love a good legal thriller that will keep me guessing until the end. I like psychological thrillers like Gone Girl and authors like Gillian Flynn who combine brilliant prose with a hard hitting story. Give me a mystery I need to solve or an unexplained paranormal event and I’ll curl up on the couch and read until the end.
How Do I Rate Books I Review?
Instead of stars or thumbs up or down, I will rate each book with a “Rant” or “Rave.”
Rant- 1 to 3 stars
Rave- 4-5 stars
I typically only review 3 star books on Goodreads since they are neither a Rant or Rave.
Thanks for stopping by!
