Friday Finds

Friday Finds is hosted by MizB at You Should Be Reading.


This is the first time I have taken part in Friday Finds, but I couldn't resist as I have found some fabulous books on other people's blogs that I really want to rave about them. So below, you will find a list of books I would really like to read.


1) I found Incantation by Alice Hoffman on Naida's blog the Bookworm. Now many of you will know that my first reading experience involving Alice Hoffman wasn't very good, but this one looks fabulous.


2) Mommywood by Tori Spelling. I know this is a really sad choice, but I am a big Tori Spelling fan and I just loved sTori Telling. I am addicted to watching Tori and Dean:Home Sweet Hollywood and find her life fascinating, as it is just so different to mine!


3) Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson . This was a book I found on Vasilly's blog - 1330v. It is the story of two young girls who are moved around quite a bit during their childhood. I get the impression it is the type of book to be savoured and read slowly as Vasilly mentioned how well written it is.

These are three books I really want to read and shall be adding to my list. What books have you found this week that you want to read?

  1. I'm not sure what other Hoffman book you've read, but I really liked Ice Queen. Here on Earth was a real bummer for me--didn't like the writing style. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I have my eye on Incantation and Housekeeping too. And I second Trish's recommendation of The Ice Queen.

  9. Hi!
    Haven't read any of the books you listed. But they do sound interesting! I just started Uglies yesterday, but it is really starting out pretty good. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!
