Friday Finds (October 3)
Friday Finds is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
According to an article in The Guardian, Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name by Vendela Vida is actually the second in a trilogy of novels “on the subject of violence and rage.” I first heard about this intriguing-sounding book in a review by Wendy at caribousmom.
I’ve read one of Nancy Pickard’s Jenny Cain mysteries (which I found so-so), but this review by Becky at No More Grumpy Bookseller of The Virgin of Small Plains makes me want to give her another try!
Capote in Kansas by Kim Powers is a book that I’ve seen mentioned on several blogs now, but it was Iliana’s interview with the author at bookgirl’s nightstand that cemented it for me—this is yet another book I must find the time to read!
Last but not least, I recently came across a blurb about Taking Flight: Inspiration and Techniques to Give Your Creative Spirit Wings by Kelly Rae Roberts on Prill Boyle’s Defying Gravity, a blog about late bloomers. The cover art is what first grabbed my attention plus I love this type of book!
