March 17th: Lucky finds: what book(s) do you consider a lucky find?

Oh this is hard. I do read A LOT. And I do not want to mention books that I have found on blogs, hmmm.

I found Jonathan French's Grey Bastards at a book changing table. Free! So I took it even though someone had once said it wasn't for me, and it totally was for me!

This is hard, everything I read has been recced one way or another.

I am going back in time to Magician by Raymond E.Feist. I loved fantasy, but I had never read in English so I read it and fell in love with a new world. An reading in English world. Which is probably why I still love the book more than anything else. All thanks to my library.

At times I still think about Dark Matter by Michelle Paver. It was scary in a real way. What is beyond a dark window....

Thorn by Intisar Khanani, in 2015 it was free on amazon and still today it is the best self pubbed book I have ever read. I plan to listen to it now in March as it has been released through Harper. Wish me luck!

Every book I look at is makes me all, oh yes I was recced this one on a blog, and this one. Wow, you have all made me read A lot of books. And then there are review books, which lucky finds? Nah.

Bitten by Kelley Armstrong, I found it at the library, and it made me fall in love with UF, pre blogging days so I did not even know what UF was or where I could find it

WHeel of time by Robert Jordan, my in to fantasy.

My mum's Harlequin book. My love of romance started


  1. That's quite the list Blodeuedd thanks for sharing :) I know you love your epic fantasy and it looks like there's a good showing here.

  2. It's always nice to have some great discoveries

  3. Good picks. I am too forgetful. I cannot think of any off hand!

  4. I loved Magician when I first discovered it back in college.

  5. Over the course of a year, I come across many lucky finds, which I consider gems. I already have a few for my list at the end of the year :)

  6. Nice list - I've not read any of them. I do recall finding a great book for my son when he was little just sitting at the doctor's office. He started reading it and we asked if we could take it home because he was enjoying it. That lead to him/us discovering and reading a lot of the Jack and Annie, Magic Tree House books.

    1. Nice :D Those were some good finds then!

  7. If I had to make a list of all the books I loved that I stumbled onto all by myself that would be tough. I think the best ones were Moon Called by Patricia Briggs, The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer, The Merrimack Chronicles by RM Meluch, and Midnight's Daughter by Karen Chance.

    1. Aww Moon called! I guess someone recced it to me

  8. I really want to read Bitten! It is always fun to find a book that works so well for you.
