Friday Finds (June 19)

What great books have you added to your wish list this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.

Here are the books that made it onto my wish list this week:

I’ve now read three rave reviews of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley: one by Donna at BookBound, one by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea and one by Allison at On My Bookshelf.

Real Life & Liars by Kristina Riggle is the latest book launched by one of the Debs from The Debutante Ball. Swapna reviewed it at S. Krishna’s Books.

Given all my recent readings about polygamy, Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Kathryn Joyce sounds right up my alley. Lawrence reviewed it at the Feminist Review.

Rebecca at Lost in Books mentioned The Sky Always Hears Me by Kristin Cronn-Mills in her Friday Finds post last week. he review that inspired both of us to put it on our wish list.

Nymeth reviewed Virgin: The Untouched History by Hanne Blank at things mean a lot.

Finally, despite my reservations about Jennifer McMahon (all her books sound disturbing), Joanne’s great review of Dismantled (at The Book Zombie) has inspired me to tentatively put this one on my wishlist... Has anyone else read McMahon? Are her books disturbing?


  1. I just added Dismantled to my wish list too! I have not read any of her other books. This one sounds good.

  2. Those all look good! The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and Dismantled both caught my eye too.

  3. Nice finds. I didn't know you live in Montreal! I'm following... =)

  4. These all look like great finds to me!

  5. Sweetness is definitely going on my list -- have a great weekend.

  6. Great finds Avis! Dismantled is on my wishlist as well.

  7. Dismantled caught my eye. Off to my TBR pile it goes. Great finds this week!

  8. I'm really curious about Bradley's book too. It sure sounds good!

    So many tempting books. I really shouldn't be reading these posts before I head out to run errands. I'm trying to avoid the bookstore . . .

  9. Hi!

    I really want Dismantled! With The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - a close second.

    However, they all sound great. Good finds.

    Here's mine!


  10. I've heard a lot of good things about Sweetness at the Bottom of the PIe ... I want to read it too!

  11. Cool! I am so glad you found a find on my blog! Doesn't it look great?

  12. I hope you enjoy Virgin as much as I did! I learned so much from it.
