This post is inspired from Should Be Reading’s blog on all the books you have found this week, but I am going to do this post every couple of weeks to let you guys know some of the great books I have found or been recommended.
After a nice lunch with my fellow book worms Sam Crossley & Ross Phillips I came back with 11 books to read, and my list has been building over the last couple of weeks so I will jump into my new Friday Finds!
|The First Chronicle of Pern: Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey|
(and the another 9 books from the series). Lent to me by Mr Ross Phillips I ditched all other reading a picked up this book on Tuesday evening and have been storming through it. A lot more difficult to read than some of the YA I have been reading of late, but this has a fantastic style and I am really getting in to it!
|One Day by David Nicholls|
Lent to me by Mr Sam Crossley, he has been banging on about this book for months. I have very little knowledge about it, with only what I can gain from the romantic comedy style comments on the back. But Sam has very good taste in books so I will have to trust him!
|The Fault in Our Stars by John Green|
I had heard about this book in numerous places, and finally decided I needed to find out just why it is so popular. With nearly all 5 star reviews on Goodreads it felt this a challenge I needed to read. I have borrowed this from my younger brother’s girlfriend so will be tackling this book soon, and lets hope it lives up to all the hype!
|Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowan|
First of all I must bask in the beauty that is this books cover. I had seen it on a number of blogs, but after seeing it on Paper Book Princess I gave in and added to the TBP (to be purchased) list, as it is not even released yet! The teenage YA theme holds promises of a different sort of romance with vampire, angel and demonic themes that send me in an almost frenzy!
|Across the Universe by Beth Revis|
This is another beautiful cover, and a science fiction narrative that sounds right up my street. I first heard about this from Grazing Pages (who I have huge book worm respect for and has given me a number of book suggestions from her YouTube videos and blog posts) and added it straight to the TBP pile. I wish I had a glitch in my bank account that it didn’t charge me for my Amazon purchases, because this would be the first one I would purchase if money was no object!
|A Game of Thrones (complete collection so far) by George R.R.Martin|
After watching the first few episodes with Sam of this series I am really enjoying it. But these are BIG books, it would take me weeks to trawl through these – maybe one day I will tackle them, but atm I am content with watching the TV series.
