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.

excitedHere are my exciting new finds :

The Book of Memory by Petina Gappah

Memory is an albino woman languishing in Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison in Harare, Zimbabwe, where she has been convicted of murder. As part of her appeal, her lawyer insists that she write down what happened as she remembers it. As her story unfolds, Memory reveals that she has been tried and convicted for the murder of Lloyd Hendricks, her adopted father. But who was Lloyd Hendricks? Why does Memory feel no remorse for his death? And did everything happen exactly as she remembers?

After Anna by Alex Lake

A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless. The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved. But the biggest mystery is yet to come: one week after she was abducted, their daughter is returned. She has no memory of where she has been. And this, for her mother, is just the beginning of the nightmare

The Game you Played by Anni Taylor

Two-year-old Tommy Basko goes missing from a popular inner-city playground. 6 months later, his parents begin receiving cryptic messages in rhyme about Tommy. The police don’t believe the messages are from the abductor, but Tommy’s mother Phoebe isn’t so sure. She begins a frantic search for the writer of the rhymes, at the cost of causing her marriage to fragment. When the shocking identity of the message-writer is discovered, Phoebe’s desperate race for the truth has only just begun.

Who took Tommy? And why?

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

Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!
