Friday Finds

Happy Friday! This is Friday Finds, hosted by Should Be Reading.

Friday Finds 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 - not necessarily books that you purchased. 

So my husband has passed along to his coworkers just how much I love reading. This is starting to benefit me because now when they are done with books, they pass them along to me! Now I am a Kindle addict and that is generally where most of my reading comes from. But I still love books in all their forms.

Low Pressure by Sandra Brown - Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her sister Susan was killed. 18 years later, Bellamy has written a bestselling novel based on her murder. She published it under a pseudonym to protect her family from the publicity. But when a reporter for a tabloid discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal. I haven't read Sandra Brown in a while so I am very excited!

Amped by Daniel H Wilson - A dystopian novel where scientists have developed implants that treat brain dysfunction - and also make recipients capable of superhuman feats. Politicians have decided to pass a set of laws designed to restrict the rights of these "amplified" humans. I love dystopian novels and this one looks awesome!

Some Things That Stay by Sarah Willis - Set in 1950s America, this is a story of a family who is always moving. But fifteen year old Tamara is tired of moving and wants to settle down in the small, rural community of Sherman, New York. 

Five Days by Douglas Kennedy - Laura leaves her small Maine town to attend a radiography conference in Boston. She is relieved to have a few days break from her difficult job and patients with cancer. A meeting with a guy at the conference leads Laura to question the life that she has always led.

The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht - In a Balkan country mending from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather's death.

Another find that I recently added to my TBR list can also be blamed on my husband.  It is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I had heard of this one, but it was never on my radar. Then he informed me that it was being made into a movie and that he had already read the book two times (high praise from my husband). The movie trailer looks amazing and it automatically made me want to read the book. 

Check out the movie trailer! I am very excited about this one.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. nice finds:D thanks for sharing.

    iv done my finds a little different this week, for a chance to win a little treat pop over.

    All these books sound pretty awesome. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on them. :)

  3. Nice finds for the week!! Here are my Friday Finds for the week:

  4. Unbroken is a phenomenal book. It's an emotionally tough read, but it's also very inspiring. I hope you like it!

  5. How fantastic to have all those books making their way to your door. As much as I love my kindle I do like to read physical books too. Thanks for visiting my FFs this week

  6. "Unbroken" is a great book. Hillenbrand writes so well that it reads like a good novel, but it is all amazingly true!
