What great books did you hear about/discover this week? Share with MizB at Should be Reading and the rest of us bloggers at Friday Finds! Oh and don’t worry avisannschild – I made sure to include covers this week! :)
The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, by Alexander McCall Smith – I have seen a ton of ads on TV for this new HBO show and found out it was a book series first (aren’t they all?). This is the same way I found out about the fabu Sookie Stackhouse books, so so far HBO has a good track record of introducing me to new books! Plus I read an interview from the lead actress Jill Scott that was really cute. She needed to gain weight for the show and then right before they started taping she found out she was pregnant! What serendipity!
Secrets to Happiness, by Sarah Dunn – for Christmas this year my mom got me a subscription to Bon Appetit while my mother-in-law got me one to People magazine. Ah, my life is the perfect combination in SO MANY ways, how lucky am I? Anywhoo, last week’s People had a great review for this book. Plus how cute is the cover? My mutt’s face often has that expression of bliss. Très mignon!
The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger – Ok, I am super behind the times in not reading this, right? As I mentioned last week I am looking for time travel books, and after browsing on Amazon this popped up as a recommended read. I can’t believe I didn’t think about it on my own!!! I’m picking it up from the library today.
