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:

Love Is a Four-Letter Word edited by Michael TaeckensEverything Sucks by Hannah Friedman
Half Truths and White Lies by Jane DavisCan Any Mother Help Me? by Jenna Bailey

Bronwyn at A Certain Bent Appeal drew my attention to this review of Love Is a Four-Letter Word: True Stories of Breakups, Bad Relationships and Broken Hearts edited by Michael Taeckens. OK, this may not be the best summer reading material, but it still sounds good!

I spotted Everything Sucks: Losing My Mind and Finding Myself in a High School Quest for Cool by Hannah Friedman in a Shelf Awareness newsletter. If her wacky songs are anything to go by, this should be a fun read.

Sassy Brit at mentioned Half-Truths & White Lies by Jane Davis in her Friday Finds post last week.

Finally, Tara at Books and Cooks reviewed Can Any Mother Help Me? by Jenna Bailey, which, contrary to what you might think based on the cover, is not chick lit but rather “the story of a group of women who corresponded with one another via a secret magazine from 1935 until 1990.” It sounds fascinating! This book was also reviewed by Karen at Cornflower.


  1. Some excellent finds there this week. All of them are new to me, so I will have to look them up.

  2. I have Love is a 4 Letter Word on my TBR list too. Great finds, have a great weekend!

  3. I enjoyed Belong to Me; also her first book (name escapes me though) LOL

  4. I especially like the sound of Love is a Four Letter Word!

  5. Can Any Mother Help Me? looks terrific. You've got some great finds this week.

  6. So glad the Jenna Bailey book appeals to you! It's too bad the cover is a bit silly.
