Friday Finds

Friday Finds – Non Fiction Reads plus Book Blogger Hop

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.

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

Review: Pagan Portals – Gods and Goddesses of Wales from A Bad Witch’s Blog

A Bad Witch’s Blog is run by London based pagan, witch and author, Lucya Starza, who posts about a range of subjects including, book reviews, pagan events as well as how-to craft ideas and tutorials.


What If Jules Verne’s Nautilus Was Actually Built? from Avalinah’s Books

Evelina is a book blogger and reviewer who’s preferred genres are general fiction, fantasy and sci-fi, but she also reads non-fiction books on important topics like equality, disability, fair treatment of individuals. The Design and Construction of the Nautilus by Demetri Capetanopoulos, warrented  4.5 stars from Evelina who called it “a truly unique piece of fanmade lore that is breathtaking!


Review Bomb: The Murder of Meredith Kercher from All The Book Blog Names Are Taken

Sarah is a big fan of all things historic and although her passion is non-fiction she does get lost in a novel from time to time. I like her writing style and find her posts easy to read and always enjoyable. She wrote this post about a number of books all about the murder of Meredith Kercher, some she liked while others were drivel!


Conjuring Spirits – Michael Osiris Snuffin 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 and honesty.


And my final review this week is from a tried and trusted book blog…

Left For Dead At Nijmegen by Marcus A Nannini from Literary Titan

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 title warranted a 5 star review – not something that happens very often.


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:

Do you own more than one copy of a book? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

I don’t own more than one copy of any book per se but I do own different formats of the same book. For example, I’ve got the paperback versions of Holly Bell’s Amanda Cadabra Mysteries as well as the Kindle versions. I own the Kindle version of Jared (The Protectors #2) and also the audible version.

What about you? Do you own more than one copy of a book, do you have different formats of the same book? I’d love to know.

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.

Happy Reading!




About Me

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 -

  1. I really like your Friday Finds post. I am one of those that doesn’t really venture out of my favorite genre unless a book comes highly recommended or I keep seeing it around, so I like that you include other reviews 🙂

  2. Literary Feline says:

    Love your Friday Finds feature! Not only a way to find new books, but also blogs. 🙂

    Technically, I suppose most of the double copies I have of books are different formats.

    I hope you have a great week!

  3. Yeah, I’m like you, I sometimes have different formats for different books. Though I’ve made it a goal of mind to purge ebooks that I now own physical copies of, so I can space on my reader for other ebooks 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  4. What If Jules Verne’s Nautilus Was Actually Built? sounds pretty interesting!

  5. agreatreviewer says:

    That still counts! I mean, my collection of Stephanie Garber largely has books in it that I can’t read because of the different languages. I can still read the UK ones though! LOL!

    Other times I will buy a book that’s been re-released with a new cover if it was a favorite and such.

    Thanks for visiting my BBH!

  6. I don’t own multiple copies on purpose, but it does happen at times.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your thoughts here.
