Friday Finds

Love is in the air. Romance Books for Valentine’s Day ~ Friday Finds plus Book Blogger Hop

Hello Avid Readers,

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 💝 Today also happens to be a Friday and so it’s time for my Friday Finds post! Once again, I’ve found some great book reviews around the blogosphere that I want to share with you this week and guess what, it’s all about 💘 luuvre 💘 today.


I like being part of the weekly  Book Blogger Hop meme, hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict, so I’m doing it again today: you can read my answer to this week’s question 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 cosy mystery too. BUT it’s a big wide literary world out there and I decided back in January 2019 that you, my dear followers, might be interested in reading reviews about books from other genres to help find your next read. Ta!Da! My weekly Friday Finds post was born.

So, here are some book reviews that my fellow book bloggers have enjoyed reading (in no particular order).

Crossing the Line by Kendall Ryan from Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews

Christie and Danielle are very passionate about the books they read and want to share that passion with everyone who visits their highly popular blog. They read pretty much anything that interests them and share their reviews as well as taking part in lots of book tours, new release blitz and cover reveals. Christie is already a fan of this series and says: “Crossing the Line is everything I love about Kendall Ryan. She knows how to perfectly combine sweet, sexy, and funny with unforgettable and loveable characters. I will be waiting anxiously for the next time I get to stop in with my guys and girls!!!!

The Fight for Forever (Legend Trilogy #3) by Meghan March 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! Jo really liked this romance and says: “This whole trilogy is a real treat – each part delivered strongly.  The character and their connections.  The story arcs as they wove together.  There is nothing about this that I didn’t like.  Except the fact that it’s finished.

The Country Guesthouse by Robyn Carr from The Lit Bitch

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. However, she doesn’t restrict herself sole to historical stories but reads contemporary novels too. Anne really enjoyed this contempory romance, saying: “Carr always writes such enjoyable and believable romances, if you haven’t discovered her yet, you absolutely need to pick up one of her books and why not start with this one!

Never Enough (Meet Me In Montana #1) by Kelly Elliott from The Secret World of Book Lovers

Carla really does read all types of genres. Her reviews are very informative and she adds lots of links to help her followers to connect to the authors too. Her site also hosts cover reveals and blog tours and this book review is one of those. Carla really enjoyed this one saying: “What is it about Kelly Elliot’s romance that captures you? I Have no clue! The only thing that I know is that whenever I start one of her books, it’s impossible to put it down. This book was no exception, Brock and Lincoln story was sweet, funny and heartbreaking all in one.

And my final review this week is from a wonderful blogger who I recently found through The Write Reads on Twitter.

The Inconvenient Elswood Marriage by Marguerite Kaye from Rosie Amber

Rosie is a fellow Brit and started blogging to combine a love of reading with her desire to embrace social technology; since then she says it’s developed into a passion to introduce avid readers to new writers, and offer a platform for little-known talent. Rosie also posts reviews on her blog by her review team (approximately 30 active readers) who read a wide range of genres. Rosie read this book herself and enjoyed it, giving it 4 stars, saying: “The romance was expected, but still worked well between the couple, even surprising me a little at times. Overall, a fine ending to a series.

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 a new blog to follow!

Now on to the Book Blogger Hop meme which was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and 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 with a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.


So this week’s question is:

Which genre do you like the most?

(submitted by Shahnila @ Untiereaders)

Lol! Considering this blog is all about paranormal romance, urban fantasy and cosy paranormal mysteries, I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise that my favourite reading genre is adult Paranormal Romance! I’ve written over 250 posts using that tag alone. 😉

So what’s your go-to genre? Do you even have a favourite?

Thank you 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.

Happy Reading!

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 -

    Very nice!! Those are my favorites too! I especially enjoy the paranormal cozy mysteries which I didn’t realize was a thing until I discovered Victoria Laurie! Lol.

    Thanks for visiting my BBH!

  5. There was a point where every book I read was PNR but it changed over the years and now I only read “pure” PNR on occasion. There are so many I like the sound of now though that its about time that I got my reading on again!

    1. There seems to be more cross genre stories out there now, Nicci the differences between the genres feel more blurred to me.

  6. I had such a hard time narrowing it down, lol. I ended up picking Urban Fantasy because that’s what I’ve been drawn to lately. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope you have an awesome week! 🙂

  7. Thank you for including one of my reviews Flora, I have just popped in to see what enticing posts you have for us this week. I do enjoy the hops, I’ve found some great new reads from them.
