A Haven for Book Lovers

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

Friday Finds

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

An Interesting Purchase

DOGThis has been a really interesting week for me. I found a book that I have always wanted to read. It was being sold at a dollar by my favorite secondhand books vendor. I was really excited by the find considering that it’s a book that I have heard so much about. Oh I have heard about the mixed reviews but that doesn’t diminish just how excited I am about finding this book.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon

Book Gifts

A colleague got my three books this week. It was such a wonderful surprise and I definitely can’t wait to read the books. I have always wanted to read Desert Flower by Waris Dirie and I am so happy that I finally got a copy of the book. Karen Kingsbury  is a new author to me so I hope to enjoy the two books.


Library Finds

Browsing the bookshelves I picked two books based on the fact that I have enjoyed other books by the authors. My library picks included I am the Messenger  by Markus Zusak whose book, The Book Thief is one of my favorite books ever. I enjoyed Her Mother’s Hope and Her Daughter’s Dream by Francine Rivers and I look forward to reading Lineage of Grace which was my second pick.

So that makes it six new books added to my TBR this week.

How about you? Did you add any books to your bookshelf this week? Have you read of my new finds? Let me know.
