Books Just For Fun...

Friday Finds: Women’s Fiction. Plus Book Blogger Hop

Header graphic for Friday Finds posts in Summer June

Hello Avid Readers. Fancy some Women’s Fiction this week?

Today is Friday and so it’s time for my Friday Finds post! If you don’t know what these posts are all about, I explain it all in my Friday Finds page here.

I also 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.

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

Feels Like Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey from The Bookish Libra

Suzanne is a proofreader by day, book blogger by night and a devourer of books 24/7. Unlike me, she loves reading most genres; contemporary and historical, adult and YA, and has confessed to also enjoying more and more fantasy lately. Her hobbies include: buying and hoarding of books, rambling about books to anyone who will listen and trying to recommend books to her family and friends. I love reading all her posts and enjoy the way she sets out her reviews. Suzanne really enjoyed this book, rating it 4.5 stars out of 5, saying: “Kristy Woodson Harvey is fast becoming one of my favorite authors when I’m in the mood for heartwarming stories filled with lovable characters. Feels Like Falling is a fun read that is sure to leave you with a smile on your face, but it’s also a story that is filled with heart and with so many important themes and life lessons.  I found it a very satisfying read on so many levels and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a heartwarming story about friendship and love.

Rafe by Sawyer Bennett 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 novella rating it 5 stars, saying: “And she has done it again! Sawyer always creates these amazing characters that even though they might have absolutely ruined things, they learn from that and become even more amazing!

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover from Blue Mood Cafe

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 thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, saying: “I literally could not stop listening to this book. When I took a break to sleep, I woke at a ridiculous hour the next morning so I could get back to it. It’s a tale of two points of view as you get Clara’s, too. Because it’s from a teenager’s perspective, it has both young adult and contemporary adult fiction components and I’ve shelved this in both genres. I loved that two narrators were used and both did a fantastic job portraying Morgan and Clara, almost too good as they grabbed me by the throat from the start and tore up my insides. Obviously I loved everything about this one but don’t go into this thinking it will be all sweetness and light. It’s there but you’ve got to pay a steep price for it. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

Hooked On You by Cathryn Fox from Musings From An Addicted Reader

I don’t know who this blogger is or found out what EH stands for but their site is dedicated to reviewing books and book tours. Every genre seems to be covered including; Young Adult, Paranormal, Erotica, Thriller, Fantasy, Contemporary, Suspense and Historical. I like the way they review the books on the site, keeping it short and sweet but always tells you everything you need to know. This mystery story was rated 5 out of 5 stars, EH saying: “This was charming, you are immediately swept away into both Kira and Nates story. Nate has a secret though that is going to blow up in his face if he doesn’t come clean but at the same time he has been burned before because of it. I thought this was a perfect spring read that was visual, funny, and pulled at your heart strings.”

My final review this week is from a lovely blogger who I’ve only been following for a little while. Therefore she hasn’t featured in a Friday Finds post before!

Sweet Possession by Lucy Smoke from Book Review Hub

You can find reviews on any and all genres on Book Review Hub. I don’t know much about this prolific reader but I like the way she writes her reviews. She really enjoyed this romance, giving it 5 out of 5 stars, saying: “Sweet Possession is insanely intense with fast-paced action, danger always lurking in the shadows, and stifled passion ready to explode. If you’re looking for a good Reverse Harem/MFMM story, this one’s perfect.

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 (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:

What is your favorite bookish podcast? (You can list more than one!) What do you like most about it?

(submitted by Tabatha @ Broken Soul Reviews)

I may well be showing my age here, but I don’t watch any podcasts – bookish or otherwise. If fact, I’m rarely on YouTube. Unlike my teen daughters who are on it ALL THE TIME! I can’t even remember the last thing I watched. 🤔

Am I the only dinosaur out there? 🦕 What am I missing?

OK, so thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read this post.

Remember, continue to be smart, stay safe & healthy. I hope you have a fantastic weekend and manage to read (or listen to) a great book.

Happy Reading!

About Author

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 - www.florasmusings.com

  1. Hooray! I can see your posts now, I thought I’d lost you!

  2. Thank you, Flora I love that you chose this one.

  3. Haha, me either but my husband listens to non-bookish podcasts on who knows what – so I think it is less an age thing and more of an auditory vs. visual thing. ❤️
