Friday Finds – July 10, 2009


Every Friday Jenn at Should Be Reading asks readers to share the books they’ve “found” that week. My book finds come primarily from the book blogs whom I have come to trust for recommendations. The list this week is short – one book, actually – because I got very far behind on my blog reading (at one point there were nearly 2000 unread posts!!). I am slowly catching up. At any rate, here is one book I have added to my wish list (clicking on the title takes you to Amazon for book buying information; clicking on the featured blog takes you to their review of the book):

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly as featured on Tasses’ blog Many a Quaint and Curious Volume has been one of those books I have looked at and passed over time and time again. But after reading Tasses’ review I decided I need to give this book a try.  She writes: ‘Fused with both Grimm-like fairy stories and Oz-like wonders, where David must rely on his own wits to bridge the gap between child and adulthood, The Book of Lost Things begins to shimmer much like its elegantly designed cover and website.‘ AND ‘The luminous praise, website and cover reflect the magic that lies within its pages.

  1. This is one that I wouldn’t mind rereading sometime in the near future. I liked it quite a bit even though there’s a lot of sadness in it.

    Kristen: Good to know you liked it and would consider a re-read. I have been so ambivalent about this book…but I’m going to eventually get it and read it!

    Kathy: Makes two of us then!

    My husband bought this one for me because he knew it was on my wish list, I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I’ve heard great things about it though.

    Alyce: I will look forward to your review on it…
