Friday Finds Jan 15

What great books did you hear about or discover this week? Share with us your Friday Finds! Hosted by Ms. B at Should Be Reading. 

Wow I haven’t participated in this meme since November, so this is a mix of new and old releases that have caught my lusty reading eye recently. They are all historicals, whether YA or romance, no surprise there as it remains by favorite genre! 


1. Everlasting, by Angie Frazier: I am a sucker for any high seas adventures and this YA novel begins with one, beginning Cassie’s quest in 1855 involving a family secret, a fabled map, and an ancient magic stone. As soon as I saw this as part of Kmont’s YA spotlight blog post I knew I had to read it! 



2. The Bride and the Buccaneer, by Darlene Marshall: now this is a more grown up high seas story, with Jack and Sophia on a treasure hunt in 1817 Florida. Oh la la I just adore pirate/privateer romances! Joanna Lindsey’s Gentle Rogue is my favorite romance novel of all time after all. Check out the excellent review on Dear Author, it’s what convinced me! 


3. The Tigress Series, by Jade Lee: I’ve been sitting on this one a while after Heidenkind’s November post clued me into this awesome sounding erotic historical romance series set in China. The 6 book series follows different H/H couples finding love, solving mysteries (both spiritual and real life), and political intrigue, all with the super interesting backdrop of historical China which we don’t usually get to see much of in romances.

  1. Some fabulous Victorian YA fiction there. I shall definitely look them up. I would definitely enjoy reading these ones. I think the second one looks really good with the pirates.

  2. Great finds, definitely like Everlasting! Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  3. vivienne: i don’t read enough victorian settings, i need to change that!

    alayne: Everlasting seems to have a little bit of everything for everyone!

  4. I should write the books that I see down…. sometimes I am just to lazy to do so and I have seen some good ones!
