Friday Finds

Friday Finds – Fab Reviews To Share

Hello fellow readers,

Here we are again, the end of the week and another Friday Finds post. I am happy to say that my fellow bloggers have reading and posting some great stuff this week, I can’t wait to share some with you. 🙂 I enjoyed taking part in the Book Blogger Hop meme last week too, which is hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict so I’m doing it again this week and my answer to this week’s question is at the bottom of this Friday Finds post.

If you are one of my lovely new followers let me just take a moment to explain what my Friday Finds posts are. 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).

The Careless Boyfriend (Bad Boyfriend #3) by Erika Kelly from A British Bookworm’s Blog

Jo is a fellow Brit who loves reading but unlike me she reads across the genres and is continually sharing new releases with her followers. She is spreading the reading love and I guarantee that you’ll find something that you’ll want to read! Lol! This book sounds a fun quick read.

Man Into Wolf: An Anthropological Interpretation of Sadism, Masochism and Lycanthropy – Robert Eisler from Duke De Richleau’s Nocturnal Revelries

As I’ve said before, I always make the time to read the articles from this blog because even if I’d never actually read the books he talks about, I love his irreverent reviewing style. I do judge a book by it’s cover and this post reminds me not to.

If Cats Disappeared from the World by Genki Kawamura from KayCKay Book Reviews

An avid reader, this amazing book blogger read 217 books in 2018! 217!! She listens to audiobooks 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.

Book Review:The Poppy War By R.F. Kuang 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“. 😉

And the last review that I want to share with you is for a book that I’ve see around the book blogoshere quite a lot recently and may have even featured in a favourite review here on Friday Finds

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang from Caffeinated Reviewer

Kimberly is a self proclaimed audiobook junkie, avid reader and coffee drinker. She doesn’t limit herself to just reading one genre but reads books from young adult to hot and steamy romances with a healthy love of a good horror or Zombie book. I’ve started taking part in her The Sunday Post meme which is a lot of fun.

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 or at least one more book to add to your ever growing TBR pile!

I enjoyed taking part in the Book Blogger Hop meme last week hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict so I’m doing it again this week. 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:

Which author would you most like to interview, and why?

(submitted by Nicki @ Nicki J. Markus/Asta Idonea)

I LOVE this question! My favourite genre is paranormal romance and I’ve already included some of my favourite reads in this Top 5 Tuesday post, so of course my answer would be ALL of my go-to authors! Lol! Felicity Heaton, Teresa Gabelman and Dianne Duvall are top of my list though because I just can’t get enough of their stories. They all write female leads with the characteristics I admire; intelligence, resilience, self-reliance – they NEVER wait to be rescued – they have some form of humour be it dry, sarcastic or dirty and have loads of gumption.

So which author would you most like to interview? Have you been lucky enough to already have interviewed them for your blog? I’d love to know.

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

Happy Reading!

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -

Found you on the Book Blogger Hop! Love your choices and criteria for who you picked to interview, any one of those authors would be a great conversation. I love the strong, complex women in their novels too! I also read/reviewed The Bride Test and thought it was excellent too. Fun post!

That’s a great question, I think it’s probably a little of both. I’ll have to make that a question should I ever get the opportunity. 😉 Thanks for stopping by.
