Friday Finds is hosted each week by Jenn on Should Be Reading. Share with your readers which books you’ve discovered and added to either your TBR or wish list.
I am constantly adding books to my wish list on Amazon. There are so many books listed there that I have no hope of reading them all – but it is still fun to add to it!
Clicking on the book title will take you to Amazon to get more information on the book; clicking on the featured blogger will take you to the review which tempted me.
A Wasted Vigil by Nadeem Aslam as featured on ANZ Litlovers Litblog. I have not read Maps for Lost Lovers which is this author’s most well-known novel…but I have had this one on my radar for awhile. ANZ LItlovers writes: ‘It’s a love story of sorts set in Afghanistan, traversing its fraught history from the time of the Soviet Occupation to the American so-called War on Terror.‘ Despite a lukewarm review by this blogger, this book still interests me. I want to understand these kinds of conflicts, and I think this novel would help me do that…
The Murderer’s Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers as featured on Heather’s blog Book Addiction. Heather wrote: ‘The Murderer’s Daughters is an incredibly compelling family drama that hooked me in from the first page.‘ Any book that can hook a reader on page one is one I want to check out.
The Water’s Edge by Karin Fossum as featured on Kerrie’s blog Mysteries in Paradise. This is a translated novel and Kerrie writes: ‘THE WATER’S EDGE is a relatively quick read but raises some disturbing social issues.‘ Lately I have been interested in translated mysteries…this one goes straight to my wish list.
