Friday Finds – Let’s Get Reading

Hello Avid Readers,

I hope you’re ready for another Friday Finds post. There have been lots of book reviews flooding my inbox this week and I can’t wait to share some of my favourite reviews with you.

If you are one of my lovely new followers let me just take a moment to explain. I like to read, my favourite genre is paranormal romance but I’ve also been known to curl up with the odd urban fantasy or paranormal cozy mysteries too. But it’s a big wide literary world out there and I decided back in January that you, my dear followers, might be interested in the reviews about books from other genres to help you find your next favourite book. Ta!Da! My weekly Friday Finds post was born.

Here are some non-paranormal romance books that fellow book bloggers enjoyed reading (in no particular order).

Book Review: Porcelain Boy By Martin Hansen from JenChaos Reviews

Jennifer is a reader of various genres and is a self-confessed “chaotic reader”. Jen looks first and foremost at the writing itself before the story; she can’t stomach lousy writing. Like me, she feels that if you’re being published, you should know what you are doing in the field of literature; in other words “You should be better at it than me“.

 

You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn from Do You Dog-ear?

Lindsi really loves to read and it comes across in the way she writes her posts. She reads most genres and even posts reviews about comics. I really enjoyed that her personality comes shining through in her reviews.

 

Nobody Does it Better (Lucky in Love) by Lauren Blakely from The Secret World of Book Lovers

Carla really does read all types of genres. Her reviews are very informative and she adds lots of links to help her followers to connect to the authors too. Her site also hosts cover reveals and blog tours.

 

REVIEW: My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing from Thrill Me. Chill Me.

Julie is definitely an eclectic reader, but psychological thrillers and mysteries seem to be her favourites. Her reviews are well written, informative and her writing style makes them very easy to read.

 

And last but by no means least is…

Review: The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer from

Anne Mendez usually reviews books in the historical fiction genre, including all the sub-genres, e.g. mystery, thriller, romance, etc. and although this is a genre I rarely read myself, I always enjoy her thoughts and I’m almost tempted to dip my toe into the historical pool.

So, that’s my picks for this week. I hope you find a moment or two to click at least one of these reviews yourself – who knows you may just find your next favourite author!

Before I go, I just wanted to remind you that the current Audible trial is a great way for you to try an audiobook for FREE – you could choose an audio version of one of the books mentioned above!

As you can tell from my reviews and those from my blogging friends, we’re “reading” more and more books like this and find it a relaxing but more immersive experience. If you sign up today for a month it’s easy to cancel AND any audiobooks you download are yours to keep forever, even if you cancel!

If you live in the UK, check out the free trial here and if you live across the pond in America click here.

Hope you have a good weekend and manage to read (or listen to) a great story.

Happy Reading!
