Friday Finds – January 16, 2015


Friday Finds is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading to showcase books you recently found and added to your TBR (to be read) list. It doesn’t matter whether you found them free online, borrowed them from a library or purchased them. Anything and everything works.

My total finds for the last couple of week are seven library books and three thrift shop books. Yep, I am already falling behind for this year.


I’ve already finished Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris. It is the fifth book in her Sookie Stackhouse series and each book appeals to me more. Yes, I am hooked on this series.

I’m currently reading The Kraken Project by Douglas Preston. More on that Tuesday.

StreetLawyer One of the books I’m most looking forward to is The Street Lawyer by John Grisham, although I don’t know when I’ll be able to actually get around to reading it. I hadn’t read much (if anything) in the way of legal thrillers until Michael Connelly’s The Lincoln Lawyer. It is the first in Connelly’s Mickey Haller series. I was going to skip them until discovering that Harry Bosch shows up in the next two books. I found The Lincoln Lawyer absolutely riveting and decided I might actually enjoy legal thrillers. Who better to sample than the master John Grisham.

The only other item of particular note is The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber.InnRoseHarbor It is the first of her Rose Harbor series. Back at home, I found out this is a spin-off of her Cedar Cove series, so this book will go in storage for a while. I haven’t read the Cedar Cove books, but love the television series. My local library has the entire Cedar Cove series so I’ll try them as soon as time permits.
