mizb is the host site for this weekly event. Here are my Friday Finds in the past week:
- 33 Things Every Girl Should Know About Women's History by Tonya Holden - found on Average Girl Reads (one of her Friday Finds for 11-7-08) - excerpt
- Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell - found through the "Coming Soon" section on Random House's website - excerpt
- The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir - found through Oct/Nov 2008 issue of Random House's Newsletter - I've read Philippa Gregory's The Virgin's Lover and didn't quite care for it. I can't pinpoint the reason. I'd love to give someone else's version of Elizabeth I's story a try. - excerpt
- Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner - found @ Alyce's At Home with Books (one of her Friday Finds from 11-7-08) - this sounds hilarious; I know it's for kids but I will be calling myself "Skippito Friskito" for days if not weeks!
- The House on Tradd Street by Karen White - found @ Savvy Verse & Wit - part ghost story, part romance, part mystery; three of my favorite genres rolled into one book.
- The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett - found @ Stuff as Dreams are Made on
- Die Before I Wake by Laurie Breton - found @ Lori's Reading Corner - sounds like a great mystery
- My Lady of Cleves by Margaret Campbell Barnes - found @ S. Krishna's books
