Friday Finds (January 9)
What great books have you discovered this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.
What with the movie version being in theatres now and the fact that I’m currently completing the War Through the Generations challenge, I was already predisposed towards being interested in The Reader by Bernhard Schlink. Then I read Amy’s review at My Friend Amy and I was sold! (Amy also discusses the book and the movie in more depth .) Now I just need to get my hands on a copy...
I was actually one of those people who enjoyed Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, to which Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunée has been compared. I first saw this book mentioned in a Shelf Awareness ad and then Kristi at Books and Needlepoint mentioned it in her Monday Mailbox post this week. Another one for the wish list!
