Friday Finds (April 3)
What great books have you added to your wish list this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.
I love love love the cover for Undercover by Beth Kephart, so I was happy to read Lenore’s favourable review of this book at Presenting Lenore, which she concludes by saying “If I could go back in time and give this novel to my 8th grade self, I would. My adult self is certainly in love with it.”
I can’t do justice to Trish’s review of The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan in a few words, so you’re just going to have to head over to Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’? and read it for yourself. Suffice it to say she’s convinced me that I want to read this book!
Both Tara at Books and Cooks and Sheri at Bookopolis had great things to say about The World in Half by Cristina Henríquez. Tara was “entranced by the beauty that I found in this author’s first novel” (read the rest of her review), while Sheri says it is “a beautifully written story that has a certain underlying magic to it” (read the rest of her review).
Finally, Fleurfisher mentioned Mrs. Woolf and the Servants by Alison Light in her Library Loot post at Fleur Fisher Reads this week. According to the Telegraph, this is “a compelling portrait of how rich and poor women of this time were locked into a strange and pernicious symbiosis, and a vital warning against social inequality.”
