I’m going to be honest (hey why not, I’m anonymously posting on a blog less than 30 people read), I’m probably not going to read any of these Friday Finds soon.
I have decided that for the next three weeks I’m reading my old favorites, my comfort reads, my go to get-high-on-romance-like-whoa top shelf books. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t stumble across some good recommendations this week so I can participate in Friday Finds at Should Be Reading! They’ll just have a wait a bit while I get my snuggle on with my golden oldies…
Anybody Out There? by Marion Keyes – saw this on Jess’ Friday Finds last week. What IS it with me picking titles that are questions? I had two Kinsella’s like that recently too. Weird. Would you believe I have never read anything by Keyes? Her backlist sounds like it will be right up my alley.
The Help, by Kathryn Stockett – Lisa of Books and Cooks is a southern gal, and although I don’t think it was a “bad thing” I was raised in the North, I am sad I didn’t discover the fabulosity of the South until my freshman year of college in North Carolina. So now to make up for all those years I LURVE reading books set in the South and Lisa’s review sounded intriguing.
Son of the Morning, by Linda Howard – Sometimes I choose books based on my fantasies. When my own imagination only gets me so far, I turn to a talented author to create the story my own mind can’t. I love reading historical romance so I can imagine myself in big frilly dresses with bows, corsets, diamonds in my hair, and a feathered fan. I wish I could travel back in time but I can’t… good thing there are plenty of romance novels written about modern day women time traveling!
I posted my fantasy on the message boards of All About Romance and the LOVELY LADIES there had some great recs for time traveling heroines, but Son of the Morning was the most popular one. This will be the only new-to-me book I’ll read in the near future.
Wish this was me (those of you who know me IRL know just how appropriate this is):
