FRIDAY FINDS, hosted by MizB at Should be Reading, showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
I think the Friday Finds meme is kind of like a catch-22 – you want to finish all the books on your TBR list, but it will never happen because you keep adding more and more books to the list each week. I don’t know if I should be overjoyed or depressed that my TBR list is getting longer, so I’ll try to limit myself to three “finds” per week.
- Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce. Tamora Pierce is only MY MOST FAVORITE AUTHOR EVER WJ:ETOI@#*, no big deal… I was already giddy a month ago when I heard about this book. You can probably imagine my reaction last Tuesday when it came out. #fangirllinglikeitsmyjob
- Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead. (My review) I saw this one at the bookstore and picked it up because of the cute lobsters on the cover. In my mind, I classify books like this one under “lots of characters” (like Addled or The Last Time I Saw You, if anyone has read those?), although I think A Game of Thrones wins the award for having lots of characters
die. I’ll give it a try!
- David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell. SQUEE! I wholeheartedly support my Canadian authors, and Gladwell’s books were what got me into reading more nonfiction books.
And I already found another book that I want to add to this list! Bah, I have no self-control whatsoever… I’ll save that one for next week then.
Have you read any of these books? What books did you find this week? Let me know so that I can check them out!
