Friday Finds (May 8)
What great books have you added to your wish list this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.
Margaret at BooksPlease has this to say about Star Gazing by Linda Gillard: “I loved Star Gazing. It’s not just a love story, it’s also about how we ‘see’ the world, how we interact with other people and how we cope with our disabilities be they physical, emotional or otherwise.” Head over to her blog to read the rest of her review (and enter her giveaway)!
Kylee at Kylee’s 2009 Blog mentioned A Proper Education for Girls (aka The Peachgrower’s Almanac) by Elaine Di Rollo in her Friday Finds post last week. The product description on Amazon makes it sound so good: “A dazzling debut novel, both comic and dark, about the Victorian obsession with science, inventions and experiments. Two sisters . . . communicate via coded messages that reveal deep secrets, and lead to adventure . . . with a twist.”
I almost forgot to mention Becky’s review at Becky’s Book Reviews of The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams, which she highly highly recommends! You can also read her interview with the author.
