Friday Finds

Jenn over at Books and a Beat hosts Friday Finds -- a meme of books you might have found over the course of the week and would like to share.  It doesn't matter where you found these books --the library, big box book store, indie bookstore, the back of your closet and it doesn't matter what form -- physical book, e-book, audio book -- just a book.

So, here are my finds for this week.  I have been reading lots of M. C. Beaton and Nancy Atherton and have fallen in love with cozy mysteries.  I decided this week to seek out some of the other offerings so I headed to my neighborhood Half Price Books. 

With the upcoming Hallmark movie starring Alison Sweeney based on the  Hannah Swensen cookie jar mysteries by Joanne Fluke, I chose the first in the series Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder.  I haven't started it yet but want to read it before I see the movie. My two reservations about this book are the font size -- I have been reading on my e-reader and my eyes are spoiled.  I thought about buying e-books but these used books are so much cheaper and I will donate them to my granddaughter's Girl Scout book project which is ongoing throughout the year.  The second reservation is hunger -- I am afraid these are going to make me hungry for things I shouldn't be eating.

As I was looking at the Joanne Fluke books I found one that isn't a cozy at all but it looks to be more of a ghost story.  It is called The Other Child.  The cover reminds me of The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson and we all know I am a sucker for book covers.

Then, the last discovery is The Diva Runs Out of Thyme by Krista Davis.  This is the first her domestic diva series.  I am not all that dometic so I don't know how it will go but again with the cover "issue".

Honestly, I didn't exactly just "run across" these books -- I went looking for them.  Again, not sure if I will wish I had bought e-books (Nooks are so easy to read while riding in a car!) but I am looking forward to reading them anyway.

So, those are my Friday Finds! I will review when I am done.
