So I was listening to a podcast recap of this book, talking about all kinds of piratical things on my way to work and a man with a scarlet macaw on his shoulder walked past me through the train station!
Laundry day, but definitely getting more reading done than laundry.
Book's ok. Was kind of boring to start, but once the pirates starting doing piratey things it has been more interesting. Hopefully it has a decent ending.
I'm going through the worst reader's block I had in years. Honestly, it's never been this bad. I started half a dozen books but couldn't finish one. And then I binge-watch "Black Sails" and it's all about pirate books. I read three books in the last four days. But I'm afraid that once I finish them all, I'm back to where I started. So my question is: what do you do when you go through such a terrible reading spell? Please help. ??
This was a great romp and had a bit of everything in it. An enjoyable book that I think could be made into a great film. On top of this it got me to my second country (Jamaica) on my #LitsyPassport Challenge. Recommended for those who enjoy pirate books.
Starting this book as part of my #LitsyPassport Challenge, this book will take me to Jamaica. A bit behind on this challenge as I am meant to read a book a month and this is only my second of the 12 countries visited this year!
Does anyone else just love pirates? I know I do. And I adore my little pirate funkos I have of Jack and Elizabeth.

I really enjoyed the adventures of Captain Hunter. I haven't read a good pirate story, or a Michael Chrichton book in years. It comes together like a heist novel with pirates. (Insert Ocean's Eleven joke here) I forgot just how much I enjoy reading his work. I might have to revisit some old favorites.
For bookclub I had to choose a book with pirates this month. I wasn‘t very excited about reading a book with pirates & I think I went into this half thinking I wasn‘t going to enjoy & at first I didn't.
About a 3rd of the way through though I really started to enjoy. There is a few twists and turns, a kraken, storms, treasure, sneak attacks, everything you‘d expect in a book about pirates.

For tonight's bookclub, we all brought adventure books. Can't go wrong with Crichton or Child. "Pirate Latitudes" is a classic swashbuckling adventure à la "Pirates of the Caribbean". A great quick, fun Summertime read!
There be a fair amount of murder and treasure and whoring and fighting herein this set of pages. The authors sees to it that all pirates meet an agreeable fate including one bastard who was shot in his man-jewels by his wench. Ye best be liking this or suffer the penalty of pain.
