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.
