Books Left Unread #85


Books Left Unread

Welcome to my blog post where I talk about the books I have been meaning to read, but just have not yet. You know what I am talking about – the books that have remained unread for various reasons yet when you see them you think, “You know, I really need to read that.” Instead you get distracted by another book, series, or something in your TBR pile. It happens to the best of us. I want to spotlight those books in the hope that I can persuade myself to move them up on my TBR list.

This week’s post is dedicated to:

Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman

Blackhearts (Blackhearts, #1)


I am all for a pirate book but for some reason I just cannot bring myself to start this one. I know I want to but there is the fear of being let down. Heck, that stops me from reading a lot of books. Have you read it? What did you think?

  1. Great post idea! I totally understand having books that I mean to read but just haven’t 🙂
    Personally I really enjoyed Blackhearts but I will say that if you’re expecting/hoping for a more Pirates of the Caribbean vibe then you’ll have to wait for book 2, Blacksouls. Blackhearts sets up the characters, the romance, and the pivotal event(s) that lead up to the creation of Blackbeard the Pirate, and then in Blacksouls you get a whole lot of piratey-action and more. (I guess you can look at it like Blackhearts is a prequel to the Blackbeard story and Blacksouls is the beginning of the Blackbeard story?)
    I really enjoyed them, but I know some people went into the first book with very specific expectations, were let down, and dismissed the whole series. I suppose it’s up to what you’re looking for 😊
