Hello my lovelies. Today is Friday and so it’s time for my Friday Finds post! This week it’s all about thrillers. I’ve found some chilling book recommendations for you. If you don’t know what these posts are all about, I explain it all in my Friday Finds page here.
So, here are some recommendations and book reviews written by some wonderful bloggers. I hope you find some thrillers to tempt you. (In no particular order.)
The Night Swim by Megan Goldin reviewed by KayCKay Book Reviews
Kimberly is an avid reader, but this amazing book blogger also listens to audiobooks and confesses to opening up the Kindle app to read books just about any moment she has! Kindred spirit, right?! 😉 I love the way she sets out her pros and cons for each book she tells us about. Kimberly was really looking forward to reading this book and loved it giving it 5 stars, saying: “This book is simply phenomenal, but be aware the story does discuss rape and abuse in a very raw and real way. This book will absolutely make you think.“
This fellow bookworm likes reading a vast array of book genres. Anna’s love of reading starting when she was young and hasn’t waned. Most of the books and audiobooks she reviews on her blog are fiction, women’s fiction, cozy mysteries, thrillers, fantasy and YA. I like the way she honestly says what she likes and dislikes about every book she read. Anna gave this chilling mystery, horror thriller 5 stars, saying: “Definitely a contender to my top 5 books of 2020 so far. There were some pretty awesome hair-raising and goosebumps-behind-your-neck moments, and the writing was superb.“
Who We Were by B.M. Carroll reviewed by book’d out
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. She’s a wonderful blogger and I love reading her posts. Shellyrae really enjoyed reading this thriller, saying: “Who We Were is an entertaining, fast paced contemporary suspense novel from Irish born Australian author B.M.Carroll, (who pens women’s fiction as Ber Carroll). With a dramatic conclusion, a well crafted plot and interesting characters, I really enjoyed Who We Were, and I’m happy to recommend it.”
Blue Mood Cafe raved about A Merciful Silence by Kendra Elliot
Jonetta is a wonderful blogger, loves reading and is fairly eclectic in her tastes (unlike me) being open to most genres. She’s open to exploring new authors too and appreciates those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. I love the way she writes her reviews and always take the time to read what she has to say. Jonetta has already posted glowing reviews for other stories in this series and thoroughly enjoyed this one too, saying: “I couldn’t stop listening to this story, needing to see resolution so I could relax and ease my fears about characters I’ve come to treasure.“
And my final review this week is from a lovely blogger who I’ve been following for years!
Anne usually reviews books in the historical fiction genre, including all the sub-genres, e.g. mystery, thriller, romance, etc. This is a genre I rarely pick up myself, but I always enjoy reading her thoughts. However, she doesn’t restrict herself solely to historical stories. Anne rated this thriller 5 stars saying: “This book is marketed for a YA audience but as an adult reader, I did not think this was a ‘juvenile’ read by any means. I am so happy I picked this one up and I am thrilled to see that it’s becoming a series because Pip is too good of a character to have one book and be done. If you love mysteries with twists you didn’t see coming, then pick this one up!“
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 find your next favourite read!
Now on to the Book Blogger Hop (BBH) meme.
BBH was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 but ended on 31 December 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict relaunched the hop on 15 February 2013.
Each week the hop starts on a Friday and ends the following Thursday. There’s a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs and learn about new books. But also to befriend other bloggers and receive new followers to your own blog. Easy!
So this week’s question is:
When you run out of bookshelf space, what do you do?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
Oh, the sheer horror!! 😱
Running out of space is why I’ve switched to ebooks. 😂 I’m a bit of a hoarder and don’t like to get rid of my books. Unless I didn’t like the story of course. I’ve still got boxes of books up in our loft, every shelf is full but I’m sure I’d find space. Somewhere.
So how about you? What do you do when you run out of space on the bookshelf?
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this post.
I hope you have a great weekend and manage to read (or listen to) a great book. Continue to be smart, stay safe and healthy.
