Ship/Pirate Book Recommendations!

One particular trope or setting I have found to consistently enjoy over the last few years are books that involve ships, pirates or just generally travelling over water on an adventure. So I figured I would recommend a few of my favourites if this is something you are also interested in picking up!

5 of my Favourite Ship/Pirate Books are:

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Fable by Adrienne Young

All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

If you have pirate/ship recommendations for me please let me know, I’m definitely looking for more to read!
