Friday Finds – 4

Another weekly meme from http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com

This week I found:

At The End by John Hennessy just sounded so interesting and I like the dystopians born of realistic orgins (so population explosion is an intersting one). Found this on a Goodreads thread looking for readers. Looking forward to reading this and as it was gifted from the author I will be reading/reviewing it first – I love it when a plan comes together 🙂

The only other book I picked up this week was from one of the lovely security guards at work – I saw him reading it this week in the mess room and it looked interesting, so be brought it back for me to read. So because I’ve not bought it myself I’ve still been good 😉 it is Vlad but I can’t remember the author and so can’t find the cover from the numerous books named ‘Vlad’ on Goodreads – oh well – I’m sure I’ll be doing a review on it soon enough. I’m definitely heading for a vampire-themed reading phase – have about 10 in the tbr pile now!

So, not too many this week as I’ve been doing well with not buying any more books…let’s see how the reading pile looks next week 🙂

This week I found:

Shades of Greyby Michael Cargill – it was kind of a re-find for me as I’d bought it a while ago and just sat down this week and started it. It’s a collection of short stories – first one was great, very quick and punchy, drawing you quickly in to an intense moment in someone’s life. Looking forward to reading the rest this week.

I received a copy of Fall for You from the author Celia Gray. Though I don’t often do typical romance stuff, this sounded cute and I couldn’t ignore the Jane Austen connection, so hopefully this should be a fun light-hearted read.

Finding Sky I picked up randomly from Amazon – I saw it on one of their charts and it caught my eye, possibly a bit of cover-love going on here, so I hope it’s doesn’t let me down! Reviews are decent (bought before I checked) so it’s in the TBR pile…not sure when I’ll get to it though!

Angelfall – I bought this after seeing it on several WWW Wednesday posts this week. Looks good and will fit with my ‘Heavenly Challenge’ so I’m happy with this. I think the cover is lovely – more cover-love – I do like the simple ones.

That’s it for this week – I’m committing myself to not buying any more books for the next few weeks as my to read pile is growing way faster than I could hope to keep up with and I like to read the books I get gifted from authors first – once I’ve done all those, then I’ll allow myself some new ones as a treat 😉

This week I found:

The cover – I admit – I find uncomfortable, but it sounds great and the reviews have been good (including one where they said the cover put them off, but then enjoyed the book) – so I’m not judging by the cover and have this on my kindle now 🙂

This has been around for a long while, but I’d not come across it before. Recommended to me this week by the lovely Emily from Confessions of a Bookaholic – will be adding to my tbr list.

Although it’s a ‘classic’ I’ve never actually read The Outsiders, just seen the film! Inspired to read this by one of the Goodreads groups who have it as their April read. My copy came through the post this week.
