Friday Finds (September 20)

Friday FindsHosted by shouldbereading.wordpress.com

FRIDAY FINDS 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).

Happy Friday everyone I hope you all found some good books this week…

Bearing in mind my post on Monday I would like to affirm I haven’t bought any books at all this week. I have however accepted a book to review from John Hanley, The Last Boat.

The Last Boat

… I know I have a whole stack of books to be reviewed but he flattered by saying he had liked my review of his first book Against the Tide, and this is the sequel so it would have been foolish to decline a book set where I live, on the beautiful island of Jersey

Against the Tide

Our local paper the JEP ran an article on John and his book which can be read here

For my second piece of author news, Jasmine Sparks the author of Dolly let me know that this book is currently selling for a mere 77p on kindle at Amazon.co.uk
So if you love a rags to riches saga click the book cover to see my review.

I have been restrained and only added a couple of other books to my TBR

Capable of Murder by Brian Kavanagh

Blurb

Capable of Murder

An old lady’s decaying body is found lying at the bottom of the stairs.
The police believe it was simply an accidental fall that killed great-aunt Jane.
But was it?
When the young Australian Belinda Lawrence inherits her great-aunt’s ancient cottage and garden on the outskirts of Bath she is convinced it was murder.
Her unexpected legacy comes shrouded in mystery.
A secret room.
Unknown intruders.
A hidden ancient document.
And then a second terrible killing.
Suddenly Belinda Lawrence is plunged into a terrifying mystery.
Half of the village seem Capable of Murder.
And if she can’t find out who the killer is, she may be next.

The other book I had to add to the TBR was When I Found You by Catherine Ryan Hyde which I came across courtesy of Andrea on http://reviewbooksandmore.com in her Teaser Tuesdays post.

When I found you
Blurb

When Nathan McCann discovers a newborn baby boy half buried in the woods, he assumes he’s found a tiny dead body. But then the baby moves and in one remarkable moment, Nathan’s life is changed forever.

The baby is sent to grow up with his grandmother, but Nathan can’t forget him and is compelled to pay her a visit. He asks for one simple promise – that one day she will introduce the boy to Nathan and tell him, ‘This is the man who found you in the woods.’

Years pass and Nathan assumes that the old lady has not kept her promise, until one day an angry, troubled boy arrives on his doorstep with a suitcase . . .

so another book about a child which I simply must find a slot to read very soon!

The Book Mammal also had three fantastic looking books about books in her post on Tuesday which also snuck there way onto my list but she did assure me 84 is a thin book so it won’t take up much room.

  1. I like the look of Capable of Murder – I’ll be interested to see your review! Jersey, eh? You’re so lucky! I’ve only been there a few times but it’s one of my favourite places…do you still have the cycle track round the bay?
