Birdwatching: Pirates!

My reason for wanting to make a list about pirate-y books should be fairly obvious: because pirates, though they’re smelly and horrible, are also pretty exciting and adventuresome and fun to read about.

These aren’t NEARLY all the books about pirates I’ve read, they’re just ones that I particularly liked.

Do you like books about pirates? I prefer ones where the pirates aren’t as horrible as they were in real life, more like the sort of pirates Disney would make movies about. Do you like nicer pirates? Or do you prefer more real-life portrayals of pirates?

Thanks to Once Upon a Bookshelf for the list-y inspiration!

  1. I’m actually just about to pick up Polly and the Pirates–it’s on my desk right now, and it looks wonderful.

    I’ve always wondered about Vampirates; the title always made it sound like a shameless mash-up to me.

    1. Vampirates is definitely one of the sillier ones– not that it’s a FUNNY series, just the whole concept is so silly. The actual writing reminds me a bit of gothic romances, really, but with pirates and vampires and vampire pirates. lol.
