Friday Finds – 5th June 2015

Friday Finds is a weekly feature hosted by Should Be Reading where you showcase 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 – whereever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased) This week I’ve chosen to include books that I have heard about before, but it was only this past week that I became extremely motivated to read them! So I’ve finally added them to my TBR shelf and my to-buy list or library wishlist! (I’ve recently started using my library again… Thank god) 1. The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer – This sounds like a really real and heart breaking book about mental illness and that’s exactly what I feel like. 2. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – I have only heard incredible things about this one and really need to begin reading more diversely. 3. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch – If you haven’t at least heard of this one I don’t know where …

Friday Finds – 29th May 2015

Friday Finds is a weekly feature hosted by Should Be Reading where you showcase 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 – whereever!

So this week I am focusing on comics! I am an avid comic reader, but this week in particular I have got the urge to read a bunch of female DC characters so here’s a few that I’ve added to my TBR. I won’t lie, I have heard of a few of these before, however it’s in the past week that I’ve made the decision to actually read them – and soon! 1. The Batman Adventures: Mad Love – From what I’ve heard this is pretty much a Harley Quinn origin story and I am SO down for that. 2. Spider-Gwen Volume 1 – Alternate …

Friday Finds – 22nd May 2015

(they aren’t necessarily books you purchased) As I’m participating in #0by16 and ProjectTBR this year, adding books to my TBR isn’t something I do lightheartedly! On top of the TBR books I own, I have been making a conscious effort to keep my goodreads TBR below 40 books at all time! (preferably 30, but things don’t always work out…) This week however I have had a few exceptions as I found a couple of books I really want to read! I haven’t purchased any of these yet, however most of them I plan on reading as an e-book so we’ll see how it goes! 1. Something Real by Heather Demetrios – This sounds like Cheaper by the Dozen mixed with LGBT+ themes! Sign me up! 2. Elena Vanishing by Elena Dunkle – I am always …
