Friday Finds (April 24)

Marie at Daisy’s Book Journal concludes her review of Going Gray by Anne Kreamer with these words: “Highly recommended for those who dye and those who don’t; for those who’ve embraced their gray hair and those who fear it; for those who are not afraid to show their authentic self and those who are still undercover.” Since I started going gray at 24 (and my mother at 16!), I’m definitely interested in reading this book.
Like Kristen, who guest reviewed Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman on The Book Lady’s Blog, I’m probably outside the target demographic for this book as I’m also childless, but I’m still intrigued. Head over to Rebecca’s blog to read Kristen’s review and see what you think.
Last but not least, Ti at Book Chatter reviewed The Prudent Mariner by Leslie Walker Williams and compares the main character, Riddley, to Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird. She concludes her review by saying: “I often ask myself what makes a book a classic and I would have to say it’s a mix of strong characters, a well-told story and one that can survive the trends. To me, this book falls into this category . . .” Sounds good to me!
