Friday Finds & Reader Recommendations – 04-15-2022

TIME FOR TODAY’S FRIDAY FINDS LIST & I’m well on my way. 🙂 Already so many amazing recommendations, plus I’ll be adding today’s releases that look great, too. 😀


Michele G: I’m weighing in on Funny You Should Ask that just released today. I read an ARC and absolutely LOVED it. Don’t be swayed by the cover…it’s ehhh, but the book was really good!

Harper: Good to know! It will be my next read.

Mony: on my TBR…look like a good story!

  • Devil’s Angel (Paradise Book 1) by Julie Capulet <— ARRANGED MARRIAGE ALERT!! “…They say family is something you’re born with. Mine abandoned me long ago. They say true love is a myth. Mine showed up as a gorgeous devil who almost killed me. I fought back. Our bodies and our hearts knew, even if our realities would never allow it…”

bev: Finished Carry the World. I had a lot of waiting times yesterday and then at the end of the day was just done and so all I did was read. So only 21 more to go.

I liked the book a lot and it was interesting to visit a time and place I don’t see as often. My only quibble would be to have seen the two leads more together during the first half of the book or during the forced proximity section. For such a long book it surprised me that some of that seemed more tell than show. But that is a personal quibble because I love a slow paced book that really lets you collect all the little interactions.

But it’s a long book and I basically read it in a day, so I did enjoy it a lot.

bev: I just saw a surprise baby rec video and it had a Samantha Towle book and he is a fighter. So, bringing it back to old school Maryse Book Blog. Anyway the heroine is saying how she didn’t accept money when she found out she was pregnant.

Now when I was younger I’d have cheered this on. Now I’m older and I’m always like take the money, get a sweet home for you and baby in a lovely neighborhood. No shame in that.

  • You Had Me at Halloumi by Ginger Jones <— MEDITERRANEAN HEAD CHEF W/ NO RECOGNITION NOW IN A CONTEST!! P.S. I LOVE Mediterranean food. ALL OF IT. 😀 “…ditching both her job and unsupportive boyfriend, she packs her bags for sunny Cyprus in pursuit of the prestigious Golden Spoon culinary award. As one of the seven competitors, Freya is determined to clinch the trophy and rediscover her passion for food, but what she doesn’t expect to discover is Xanthos. As gorgeous as he is charming – he’s quite the dish…”

Mony: I find myself reading mostly CR books these days (especially those with a man in a suit on the cover 🤦‍♀️ ) So I’m trying to trying to make a push to read more PRN/UF books. I’ve read these in the last month and really enjoyed them.

Karma (Karma trilogy) by Donna Augustine (cool book cover) 5★

Memory Zero (Spook Squad trilogy) by Keri Arthur 4.5-5★

Lord of Population by Elizabeth Stephens (still reading but so far 5★)

The Song of the Marked (Shadows and Crowns series) by S.M. Gaither 4★

And read this CR and I really loved it. The Sex Surrogate by Jessica Gadziala. Yup, man & suit on cover. I think everyone should marry a guy like this! 😉☺️ 5+★

Harper: I’m reading Ten Trends to Seduce Your Bestfriend by Penny Reid and so far is very good too.

Harper: I LOVED IT! It was perfect!! My favorite read this year so far! You guys should read it =)
