Friday Finds - Jan. 18th

FRIDAY FINDS is hosted by Should Be Reading 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're not necessarily books you purchased.)

This week's finds are: 

  • Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed -  I love Downton Abbey, so this book sounds perfect for me.  The fine balance between the wealthy and their servants, a family scandal, romance- all set during the Victorian era.
  • Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith -  I'm both intrigued and scared of this book.  I tend to avoid contemporary fiction, so this is definitely out of my comfort zone.  But the premise sounded too good to pass up.
  • Enchanted by Alethea Kontis -  Fairytale retelling!  This one's a retelling of the Frog Prince, and I'm always super-excited for new twists and adaptations of fairy-tales.
  • Eve by Anna Carey -  I'm totally in love with dystopian literature now, and this one sounds really exciting.  Plus the cover's awesome!
  • A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont -  This looked really interesting because it's a fun take on classic literature.  To get thrown into your favorite book and become the main character would be an epic adventure, especially when it involves Mr. Rochester.
  • A Touch of Scarlet by Eve Marie Mont -  This is the sequel to A Breath of Eyre, and while I didn't enjoy The Scarlet Letter, I think it would still be fun to see what kind of spin they put on it.
  • The Holders by Julianna Scott -  Kids with mysterious powers go to a school for kids with mysterious powers.  Sound familiar?  The premise has worked in the past, and it got glowing recommendations from some fellow bloggers, so I think I'll check it out.
  • Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton -  A girl who can see emotions as personified beings?  Who can't be touched by any of them except Fear?  Who has to rely on Fear to help her?  This just sounds so cool!
