Friday Finds (February 27)
What great books have you added to your wish list this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.
I generally try to highlight books reviewed by other bloggers in my Friday Finds posts. However, this week I came across a whole bunch of books on a variety of sites, and none of them were reviewed!
Follow Me by Joanna Scott was mentioned by Wendy at caribousmom in her Mailbox Monday post this week.
I found The Past and Other Lies by Maggie Joel in a banner ad on an Australian site called Bookseller+Publisher. More info about the book is available at the publisher’s site, Murdoch Books. (I have no idea if this novel is even going to be available in North America.)
Resistance by Owen Sheers was mentioned on the Reading Group Guides site.
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson is being featured (yesterday and today) at Reviewer X and Presenting Lenore.
Welcome to the Departure Lounge: Adventures in Mothering Mother by Meg Federico was mentioned in a Random House Canada newsletter. You can read the first chapter on the Random House site. (It sounds very funny, even though this is a pretty serious topic.)
Finally, Jenners mentioned The Worst Thing I’ve Done by Ursula Hegi on her blog, Find Your Next Book Here. (I love the cover of this book in particular, although Follow Me and Speak also have awesome covers!)
