Friday Finds (July 24)
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:
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 Alternative-Read.com 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.
