Hello Fellow Book-a-holics,
I hope you’re ready for today’s Friday Finds post! My fellow bloggers have been devouring books from a HUGE range of genres this week, filling my inbox with some great reviews – even when the book’s they’ve read haven’t quite hit the spot. 😉
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. After all, I started this blog to help readers find their next favourite book. Ta!Da! My weekly Friday Finds post was born.
I have recently grown the number of great book bloggers that I follow, here are some non-paranormal romance books that these new blogs have posted reviews about (in no particular order).
This fellow bookworm likes reading a vast array of book genres, but most of the books and audiobooks she reviews on her blog are fiction, women’s fiction, cozy mystery, thriller, fantasy and YA. Although this particular book didn’t sound like my cup of tea, I steer clear of dystopia stories, I like reading her reasoned and balanced review.
I’ve never known a book blogger that epitomises the definition of a book-a-holic more than Shelleyrae. 😉 she writes about what she did or didn’t like about a book and, like me, tries very hard to avoid spoilers in her reviews. I love this book’s cover even if the story isn’t my thing, I still enjoyed Shelleyrae’s review.
Crystal runs this book club and her group of readers post quality reviews from their favourite authors throughout the romance genre as well as fun interviews, guest posts, cover reveals and fabulous give-aways. I have found a couple of new-to-me authors since I started reading this blog!
Liz is a self-confessed girl with a book obsession, a caffeine problem and an adrenaline addiction. She reads and reviews across almost all genres, but she has a special soft spot for YA and children’s lit which aren’t my preferred genres but I really like her style of reviews. This is not a children’s book but she’s written a glowing review for it and I just love that cover!
And finally, I wanted to share a review with you from a blogger who has just started blogging this year. Let’s show her some support…
Bella is a fellow British blogger who’s blog is not only packed with book reviews and interviews but with more personal blog posts about living well with chronic illness.
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!
This week, I’ve decided to take part in the Book Blogger Hop meme hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict. A question is posted each week, you answer the question and visit others blogs to see what their answers are. Easy! So this week’s question is:
Do you have a favourite classic? When did you read it? High school or as an adult?

I have fond memories of A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I picked up a small hardback copy from a local charity shop that was printed in the 1930’s. Not only is it the first Sherlock Holmes mystery but I loved the vampire storyline!
While we’re on the subject of vampires, I’ve got a book to get back to. 😉 Hope you have a good weekend and manage to read (or listen to) a great story.
