A Haven for Book Lovers

I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books

Friday Finds

Friday Finds is a meme hosted by Books and a BeatThis is an opportunity to share the books that you have recently found and added to your TBR.

I am trying not to buy new books before I read all the news ones already  on my bookshelf. Kandi-Budget1However, I never turn down a good offer. Last weekend, I was walking in Nairobi town when I found a street vendor selling old books. I found three nice, old books for only a dollar (Kshs.120).



So here are my Friday Finds.

A Brother’s Journey by Richard Pelzer and A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer- I picked these two because they are based on true life stories. Richard and Dave are brothers who went through unimaginable abuse at the hands of their mother. I have read, Dave’s other book, Lost Boy which a reviewed sometime back.

Atonement by Ian McEwan- I picked it simply because of the lovely cover.


So those are my new (old) books. 0c9f41b0-9ab9-0133-985b-0a6c20e5e327


Did you find any new books this week? Have you read any of the books on my list.Share your links and comments. I would like to read about your new gems.

I am going away  on a road trip to Malindi(Kenyan Coast) today, sun and beaches all weekend, yay!Excited about the 8 hours bus drive and I hope to read something fun  on the way.I am traveling solo(with a travel company though) so hopefully, there will be some nice people on the trip too.

Happy Easter!

    It’s always nice when you get a bargain. I think I mostly live on buying cheap, secondhand books. Otherwise, book-buying tends to be very expensive. Enjoy your new books ^^

    Such a bargain! I love it. I haven’t read Atonement, but I love the movie. I should probably pick up the book. Hope you have a lovely trip! (:

    I’ve been wanting to get Atonement forever now. I haven’t seen the movie either but my friend told me it’s very good and played by Keira K.

    Enjoy your trip!

    A child called it, is amazing, it is so heart breaking but reading through the whole series of David’s life is so inspirational and he is such a strong person. If you like it You should check out Child C it is very similar to a boy called it 😊

      Thank you. I read his second book Lost Boy but I should have started with A Child Called it. Loved the second book and I agree, his story is inspirational. I will definitely look for Chic C. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I was pretty busy this week with life, so I didn’t really ”find” new books. However, I started November 9 by Colleen Hoover and, well, I’m enjoying it. It’s just really cheesy.

      I didn’t get your comment about November 9, is it too cheesy for your liking or cheesy but in a good way?
