Weekend Blog Hops - 13 March 2020

Hi all! It's time for those weekend blog hops once again! 

Other than book reviews, what do you feature on your blog?
Well, information about my own books, naturally. In addition to that, I do these hops, I review films and theatre from time to time, I write monthly blog posts on different topics. In the past I've done author interviews, writing and editing tips etc. I also share my drawings and my vlogs (which include book and writing tags and end-of-the-month round-ups of what I've been reading and watching). Think that's about it! :)
Opening sentence:
I counted fifteen dead men working the deck of the Kingston.

From page 56:
At night he slept with his arms wrapped around me and I rested better than I had in seven months.

My Current Read
Devil's Ballast
Meg Caddy
Anne Bonny was eighteen when she ran away from her violent husband, James, into the arms of pirate captain Calico Jack Rackham. Now she’s ensconced aboard Jack’s ship Ranger, passing as a cabin boy and playing her ruthless part in a crew that is raining down mayhem and murder on the ships of the Caribbean. But James Bonny is willing to pay to get his ‘property’ back. And pirate-hunter Captain Barnet is happy to take his money.

The Ranger’s a fast ship: Anne might just be able to outrun Barnet. But can she outrun the consequences of her relationship with Calico Jack?

 Devil's Ballast is action-packed yet nuanced, culturally relevant and sharp as a cutlass. Based on the true story of Anne Bonny, this new novel by the remarkable Meg Caddy brings to life one of history’s most fascinating anti-heroines.
