Friday Finds (December 19)

What great books have you discovered this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.

I requested an ARC of The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister, but unfortunately they had run out. And now Carrie at Books and Movies has written a glowing review of the book, so onto the wish list it goes...

For the second week in a row I’m featuring a book reviewed by Tara at Books and Cooks. This week it’s Revenge by Irish author Mary Stanley. (Unfortunately, Stanley’s books are hard to come by in both the U.S. and Canada.)


  1. Thanks for the link!

  2. Sorry they were out of The School of Essential Ingredients. I read Carrie's review and it does look good.

  3. Thanks for the link! More people need to know about Mary Stanley ;-)

    Also, The School of Essential Ingredients is one of the books I mentioned that I'll be writing about soon!

  4. I missed out on The School of Essential Ingredients also! I was so disapointed when I got the email as this looks like a great book.

  5. You're welcome, Carrie. I really enjoyed your review.

    Yeah, me too, Kathy. Did you manage to snag a copy?

    I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for her, Tara, as well as for your review of The School of Ingredients!

    Bonnie, sorry to hear you're in the same boat as I am! Maybe somebody will have a giveaway...

  6. I'm going to be starting The School of Essential Ingredients today and yup, after that I'll be having a giveaway. lol.

  7. I have added Revenge to my TBR's. I am thinking about doing something Irish for my themed reading challenge because (I am mostly Irish) and I have been coming across a lot of good books lately that are either by an Irish author or set in Ireland!

  8. I have *The School of Essential Ingredients* in my TBR. I'm looking forward to reading it over my "Christmas break" (ha ha! I have my 4 kids home with me for those two weeks! We'll see how much quiet reading time I get!)

  9. I'll keep an eye out for your review and giveaway, Dar!

    I popped over to your blog, Kristi, and saw you'd added Revenge to your themed challenge today. Good luck with the challenge!

    Dawn, hope you do manage to do some reading over the holidays!
