FRIDAY FINDS is hosted by A Daily Rhythm and showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list. Whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
My finds this week include a historical fiction, a young adult, a fiction, and a women’s fiction (I think):
1. Newport by Jill Morrow
This book tells the story of a family in Newport in the spring of 1921. I went to Newport recently and we did the mansion tours and I was just floored by the amount of wealth it took to make those mansions. This book is supposed to be about the “glamorous world of Newport in the Roaring Twenties” so I hope I see some of that wealth in this book!
2. Paperweight by Meg Haston
This book is about a girl who is struggling with an eating disorder in a rehabilitation center. It sounds like its going to be a really moving story about a tough issue affecting many girls today.
3. Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde
Don’t get excited, I know the title sounds a lot like 50 Shades of Grey but that is not this book. This book is about “Chromatacia, where the societal hierarchy is strictly regulated by one’s limited color perception.” I’ve been really into the dystopian novels lately where the population is segregated into a hierarchy based on some weird mutation, like the color of their blood in The Red Queen. I thought that this book sounded like a definite must read.
4. Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
This book sounds like it will be a great read. Its about a woman who is at a bar and can either go home with a friend or a guy and the book switches between the storylines on what would happen to her with either decision.
So those are my finds this week! Please feel free to share your finds or leave a link to your own “Friday Finds” blog posting below! Happy Friday! Hope you all enjoy the weekend! I am glad its here!
