Friday Finds (November 28)

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all my American readers! What great books have you discovered this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.

I haven’t read any of Daphne du Maurier’s novels, but that doesn’t deter me from wanting to read Daphne by Justine Picardie, a novel about du Maurier (and Branwell Brontë) that sounds great! (I love novels about actual writers.) Read Teresa’s review on her blog, Shelf Love.

Once I’d read Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos (read review), I checked for recommendations on LibraryThing and the first book on the list is The Book of Bright Things by Sandra Kring. Of course, I then went hunting for reviews and found a good ones at Lynne’s Little Corner of the World. Check out her review for yourself. This is the second time I’ve featured Sandra Kring in a Friday Finds post, so I think I must read her books soon!


  1. I love the cover of The Book of Bright Things.

  2. The Daphne book sounds really interesting. Thanks.

  3. I didn't know Library Thing had recommendations. I only have two books in my FF this week too.

  4. The Book of Bright Ideas is EXCELLENT, Avis.

    Your other find looks great!


  5. I may have to check out "The Book of Bright Things."

    Here's my Friday Find.

  6. Thanks for linking to my review. Daphne really is a great read. And if you like it, you should check out Rebecca, too. It's one of my favorites.

  7. I've heard good things about Daphne!

  8. I'd love to read about Daphne! I absolutely loved Rebecca, and it would be interesting to find out more about the author.

  9. The covers of both these books are so appealing! I am really interested in the Daphne book. You MUST read Rebecca... it is great and such a classic.
    my friday finds is here:

  10. Kathy, I love the fact that the girl on the cover has a book tied to her waist. But I think I like the cover to Daphne even better.

    You're welcome, Beth!

    Callista, each book has recommendations on its main page. Sometimes they don't make sense (as when ARCs are associated with other ARCs) and often the recommendations are for other books by the same author, but they are fun to check out.

    I'm glad to hear you enjoyed The Book of Bright Things, Shana!

    Sherry, apologies for not doing the FF rounds the last couple of weeks. I will comment on your post shortly!

    I know, Teresa, Rebbecca is on my list of books to read! (I have seen the movie...)

    Thanks for stopping by, Cheryl!

    Betty and Kim, thanks for recommending Rebbecca! As I said to Teresa, I do intend to read it one of these days...

  11. Never heard about Daphne but now I want to read it! Thanks for the heads-up!

  12. You're welcome, Ania, thanks for stopping by!
