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).
So, come on — share with us your FRIDAY FINDS!
The first book on my list is Inconvenient People by Sarah Wise which was recommended by Amazon and was an instant must have. Some of you may have read my Monday Musings where I talk about my love of social history, this fits right in with that. It is due to be published in paperback (for some reason although I love my kindle I prefer my non-fiction books to be ‘real books’)
My next Friday Find is appealing for the title Don’t Cry Over Killed Milk by Stephen Kaminski. I read an interview and review on Kate Eileen Shannon’s Blog http://kateeileenshannon.com/2013/09/10/dont-cry-over-killed-milk-a-damon-lassard-dabbling-detective-mystery/ and added it to my TBR. As it is currently under £2 on Amazon I think this may be a purchase very soon.
Having just finished one excellent psychological thriller (Until You’re Mine) another one has caught my eye
Precious Thing by Colette McBeth
Some friendships fizzle out. Rachel and Clara promised theirs would last for ever. They met when Rachel was the new girl in class and Clara was the friend everyone wanted. Instantly, they fell under one another’s spell and nothing would be the same again. Now in their late twenties Rachel has the TV career, the flat and the boyfriend, while Clara’s life is spiralling further out of control. Yet despite everything, they remain inextricably bound. Then Clara vanishes. Is it abduction, suicide or something else altogether?
Review from http://ireadnovels.wordpress.com
I came across my last book for this week’s Friday Finds on Goodreads – I have never read any Beryl Bainbridge so I will start with her first novel Harriet Says…
Pretty, malevolent Harriet finally arrives – and over the course of the long holidays draws her friend into a scheme to beguile then humiliate the Tsar, with disastrous, shocking consequences. A gripping portrayal of adolescent transgression, Beryl Bainbridge’s classic first novel remains as subversive today as when it was written.
