Captain Blood | Raphael Sabatini

This was completely different from the usual types of books I read. I think I'll check out some other swashbuckling pirate books. Peter Blood is sent into slavery in the Caribbean, escapes, and becomes a feared pirate. #Booked2022 #NauticalNovel @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @alisiakae

Cinfhen So glad you might have discovered a new genre 🏴‍☠️ 2mo

I enjoyed this one- the father/daughter relationship problems more than the romance issues. Sometimes we speak a different language with our parents.

In this bittersweet novel, Greta, an Indie rockstar goes on an Alaskan cruise with her father, in the wake of her mother‘s death. There are so many emotions in this novel - anger and hurt, sorrow and grief, but also joy and hope - that the narrative can feel raw at times. Pro tip: have a tissue ready for this.

The audio is fantastic; Mae Whitman does wonderfully!

I really liked this one. #NauticalNovel #Booked2022

Cinfhen This was my #NauticalNovel too!!! And I agree, audio was fabulous and definitely had come tearing up🥲 7mo
Librarybelle @Cinfhen I saw you used this for that prompt and decided I could too! 😂 I‘m not much of a reader for nautical adventures, so I was glad to check it off the list 7mo
rachelm I‘m also listening to this! 7mo
Librarybelle @rachelm Yay! 😁 7mo

Seven Days In June | Tia Williams

It‘s not quite #summerheat here but it‘s certainly warm enough to sit outside and read.

Started two books today, about 20% into both of them and loving them both, although they‘re quite different.

The tagged, on Kindle, is for the aforementioned #summerheat buddy read and The Shipping News should work for #booked2022 #nauticalnovel.

LeahBergen I loved The Shipping News. I read it and then listened to it on audio while my husband and I drove around Newfoundland. ❤️ 8mo
Cinfhen Beautiful photo 🤩glad you‘re enjoying both books 📚 8mo
squirrelbrain I bet that was lovely! @LeahBergen 8mo

Megabooks Lovely yard! Glad you‘re having a good afternoon! 8mo
quietjenn What a great cover for a terrific book! 8mo
MicheleinPhilly I read The Shipping News when it won the Pulitzer and *HATED* it. I have no idea why. I can‘t tell you anything about it. #SwissCheeseBrain 8mo

I actually enjoyed this book. It‘s sweet and sappy but somehow it gave me the good feels. A carefree musician embarks on a seven day cruise to Alaska with her dad after her mom‘s sudden death. Hoping to mend old wounds with her father and find some closure, Greta discovers more than she expected. There‘s an onboard romance that I found charming and I was pleased with how the author chose to end the book. This was my #NauticalNovel #Booked2022

Cinfhen It‘s a #USKindleDailyDeal today but I went with the audio and it was really good 😊 8mo
squirrelbrain Hmm, I may try this, although I have this on my physical TBR shelf for this prompt. 8mo
Cinfhen It was quick and just pleasant @squirrelbrain great for summertime 💛🌼 8mo

Megabooks I just got a little caught up in the fact that I don‘t think she spent enough time with her dad to mend the relationship because she spent so much time pining over and sleeping with that dude. I feel like it was more about her and hot guy than about her and dad. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ at least hot guy cared about his family!! 8mo
Cinfhen Truth, I can see that @Megabooks 8mo
Mel Just finished this one too and really enjoyed it more than I thought I would! 8mo
Cinfhen It was the right book for my mood @mel it‘s great choice for a summer read/ listen 🎧 I‘m glad you liked it as well 💞💞💞 8mo
