Warm Hues. Island Breeze. Good Reads.

It’s TheIslandReader Way!


The Island Reader supports and amplifies romance novels and the authors who create them.  Through blogging, and a soon to be launched podcast, The Island Reader recommends books, keeps you up to date on new releases and shares a few favorites.

For a long time, I looked for reviews and updates of works from my favorite storytellers and came up short.  I saw a void, my goal is to help fill it.



 About Natalya


Florida born, Turks and Caicos Islands raised.

I’ve always been an avid reader but the first time I snuck a Brenda Jackson novel off of the library’s shelf I knew that whatever career path I chose, I would always be linked to books. In addition to writing about books, I am an assistant and editor to authors & multi-passionate creatives. At my full-time job, at a Florida-based promotional product agency, I help clients stand out in competitive markets by providing brand building products.

If I’m not at the book store or online shopping, I’m somewhere catching up on my favorite soap opera, General Hospital.


Favorite movie(s): Casablanca (I am a sucker for a great love story),  American Gangster

Current favorite show(s): Grey’s AnatomyQueen Sugar, Underground ( I AM STILL MAD THAT THIS WAS CANCELLED.)

Last great book I read: I read great books all the time.

Favorite romance novel: Do you ask parents if they have favorite children?

A Classic that I haven’t read: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor

Favorite Dish: hashed lobster and grits
