Friday Finds

Here’s a fun new weekly event hosted by Jenn at The Book Zone. Jenn writes:

The idea is to share, every Friday, about books that you’ve recently discovered (never heard of before) that sound really good!

Every Friday, those who have blogs will write a post at their own blog, and then come back and leave others a link to follow on that week’s “Friday Finds” post here at The Book Zone. For those who don’t blog, you can just tell us about your “Friday Finds” in a comment on that week’s post.

So I’m going to play today. I have three new, interesting finds which arrived at my house from book publishers looking for reviews. Clicking on the book covers below will take you to an Amazon description of the book. The books are:

  1. The Rest of Her Life, by Laura Moriarty – published in 2007 by Hyperion. The blurb on the back reads: ‘The Rest of Her Life is a compassionate and provocative novel about how mothers and daughters with the best intentions can be blind to the damage they do to one another.’
  2. The Good Thief, by Hannah Tinti – Due to be released by Bantam Dell Publishing Group at the end of August 2008. Tinti is being compared to Robert Louis Stevenson and Charles Dickens – with those kind of kudos, this one piqued my interest.
  3. The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher – Just released in April 2008, this one has been getting stunning reviews – true life Victorian murder mystery which apparently reads like a novel.

I’ll be reading all three of these before the summer is out…stay tuned for my reviews!

Please follow and like the blue thistle

    I just finished reading “The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher” this morning. It was an absorbing read. I couldn’t put it down.

    Thanks for playing, Wendy! I think this might be a dangerous idea I’ve come up with (as my TBR pile is already WAY too big, and this is only gonna make it worse!). But, hey … I love hearing of new books to try, so I can’t help myself! 😛

    Jenn: You’re welcome! I know what you mean about it being dangerous LOL!

  2. Hey, Wendy! Good luck on the Read-a-thon.
