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, here are some book reviews that my fellow book bloggers have enjoyed reading, from a range of genres (in no particular order).
Lindsi really loves to read and it comes across in the way she writes her posts. She reads most genres and even posts reviews about comics. I really enjoy that her personality comes shining through in her reviews. She has begun to review more audiobooks recently and shows the same enthusiasm in her reviews of this format as to print and eBooks. Lindsi really loved this story and can’t recommend it enough saying that it’s “a phenomenal read! I flew through the audiobook and looked forward to being in the car for a little extra listening time (quietly, since the kids are too young for this book).”
If you don’t know, Literary Titan are a group of discerning reviewers that seem to find independent published works in every genre. They regularly post review and author interviews and have over 3,000 followers! You’re bound to find something that catches your eye. This political thriller warranted a 5 star review – not something that happens very often and although it’s not my genre of choice (dystopian-like theme) I was tempted when this books was described as “The premise of this story is like Mission Impossible meets the Avengers, but smarter in its portrayal of a dystopian world.”
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 thought that this contemporary romance was “Simply lovely. I adored this book. Every single word of it.”
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. Kimberly says “Lethal Memory by Jannine Gallant is the second book in the Counterstrike series. Gallant delivered an intense action-packed tale with a side of romance that I devoured.”
And my final review this week is from a tried and trusted book blog…
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 historical fiction story is “powerful and poetic, The World That We Knew is a stunning novel and a compelling read.”
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:
Can you stop reading before the end of a chapter?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
Not normally, no, and not at the end of a chapter either if the author’s doing it right!!! Lol! 😉
What about you? Can you stop mid-chapter?
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.
