Friday Finds (October 31)

Happy Halloween, everyone! What great books have you discovered this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.

Wendy at Musings of a Bookish Kitty posted a review of Imaginary Friends edited by John Marco and Martin H. Greenberg. As she says, this book is “an anthology of short stories by a variety of authors, each story taking the concept of the imaginary friend and weaving it into a fantastical tale—some set in far off worlds and others right here in our own.” Sounds fascinating, right?

First there was The Lace Reader, then came The Heretic’s Daughter and now there’s The Witch’s Trinity by Erika Mailman, who is also the descendant of a woman tried for witchcraft. I hear about this book on Shana’s blog, Literarily (now sadly defunct).


  1. I think The Witch's Trinity looks good too.

  2. I agree with bermudaonion -- The Witch's Trinity does look good!

  3. I almost bought The Witch's Trinity at the Book Expo...but, I had to draw the line somewhere!!

    Your comment on my Friday Finds dumped into Spam...but, I recovered it ;) It is there now!

  4. I have been seeing a lot about The Witches Trinity. Sounds good.

  5. I think it's so interesting that both The Heretic's Daughter and The Witch's Trinity are written by descendants of so-called witches and being published around the same time.

    Thanks, Kathy, Beth, Wendy and Mari, for dropping by!

  6. I loved reading The Heretic's Daughter although I have not posted a review as yet.

    My Friday finds!

  7. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the book, Gautami. Thanks for dropping by!

  8. Avis, thanks for mentioning my giveaway of The Witch's Trinity.

    I think the short story collection Wendy reviewed looks fantastic!


  9. You're welcome, Shana. It does, doesn't it! I'm thinking it'll go on a to-buy list if I don't win it!

  10. Avisannschild,
    The author of The Lace Reader is also descended from an accused and executed witch!

    Thanks for the interest here in The Witch's Trinity. :)

  11. Thanks for dropping by my blog, Erika. How fascinating that Brunonia Barry is also the descendant of a so-called witch! I don't know what it means, but it does seems like some kind of synchronicity is at work.
