Hello Avid Readers,
Today is Friday so it’s time for another Friday Finds post. I have found some great reviews around the blogosphere that I want to share with you this week.
I am enjoying being part of the weekly Book Blogger Hop meme too, hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict, so I’m doing it again today and my answer to this week’s question is at the bottom of this post.
If you are one of my lovely new followers let me just take a moment to explain what my Friday Finds posts are all about. 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.
So without further ado, here are some reviews for books that my fellow book bloggers have enjoyed reading (in no particular order).
Shelleyrae is another fellow book-a-holic, but unlike me, you’ll find great reviews for books covering many different genres from this Aussie book blogger. 😉 She also champions Aussie authors and showcases their books as part of her reviews, cover reveals, blog tours and reading challenges. Shelleyrae thinks that this is “a well written, engaging story of the everyday challenges of life and love, I enjoyed The Model Wife, and am happy to recommend it.”
An avid reader, this amazing book blogger read 217 books in 2018! 217!! She listens to audiobooks and confesses to opening up the Kindle app to read books just about any moment she has! I love the way she sets out her pros and cons for each book she tells us about. Although this young adult book had a couple of niggles it still warranted a 5 star review!
If you don’t know, Literary Titan are a group of discerning reviewers that seem to find independent published works in every genre. Their blog has over 3,000 followers alone! This sci-fi time travelling tale warranted a 5 star review – not something that they award very often – and although it’s not my genre of choice, it is recommended to readers like myself, who are not yet fully invested in science fiction but are looking to dabble in this particular genre as it’s “a fabulous starter book for any reader more interested in character development than the typical elements of science fiction.” Worth a try, right?
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. This first in series also has the added draw of appealing to Bronte fans! 😉
And my final review this week is from a tried and trusted book blog…
Yes OK, I know I said no paranormal romance but the Paranormal Romance Guild are a group who actually read other genres too, so shush and let me continue. 😉 Each review has a different feel as the guild has so many reviewers on staff. This is the final book in a trilogy that this staff reviewer (GLORIA LAKRITZ) absolutely loved and can’t recommend highly enough!
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!
Now on to the Book Blogger Hop meme which is 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:
You’re spending a night in a haunted house. What book would you bring with you?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
Ooh, good question. I haven’t ever knowingly spent a night in a haunted house, although many of the older properties here in the UK claim to have the spirits of the departed roam their halls and rooms. I don’t think my reading habits would change – still a paranormal romance fan – and it always travels with me! 😉 I would probably pick something light-hearted to take my mind off being scared.
What about you? Would you want to read something spooky? Horror? Historical? Or perhaps something that makes you laugh? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this post. I hope you have a good weekend and manage to read (or listen to) a great story.
