Friday Finds Time! I have been MIA from Miz B at Should Be Reading’s meme for a while since I finally have a real live TBR! The one or two books from the library I used to have to-be-read didn’t even COUNT as a pile, and now that I have a worthy TBR I haven’t been keeping track of new books I want for Friday Finds, I’ve been trying to not make a list of more books to buy since I already have so many!
Without futher ado here are a few great reads that just came on my radar:
The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker, by Leanna Renee Hieber – So the title’s a little bit of a mouthful but I DARE you not to lust for this book after you read KatieBabs’ review! This YA “Victorian Gothic Paranormal Ghost filled tale with romance that both teens and adults can read” will be released on August 25th, 2009.
The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson – I actually only just heard about this one, from my Mother-in-Law as she just read it for her book club. As soon as I looked into it I found out I’m totally late to the party on this one! Girl with a Dragon Tattoo has had so much buzz about it for a while, as the debut novel in a thriller-type trilogy, especailly as Mr. Larsson actually passed away right before being published. To find out more about the last 2 books, possible movie, and rumors of a 4th post-humus book you can visit his website here.
The White Queen, by Philippa Gregory – I love Ms. Gregory’s books, but didn’t know she had a new one coming out till I visited Planet Books and saw she was enjoying an ARC of The White Queen. I’m so excited for it’s release on August 18th! [As a complete side note, doing a Google Image Search of “The White Queen” to find the cover image did NOT give me the anticipated results, I was a little shocked!]
Did YOU come across as new-to-you books recently? Do tell!
