Friday Finds




This week's new books are actually last week's new books- I didn't do a Friday Finds post last week because I wasn't home for most of the week and didn't get the mail until late Friday. And by then, I just needed to rest!

A Lucky Child, a Holocaust memoir by Thomas Buergenthal, arrived via Carey's giveaway on The Tome Traveler. This hardcover copy is going to my library's Holocaust collection; I have my own ARC copy to read myself.

American Eve, by Paula Uruburu arrived via the publisher, for review. I had seen this book around in hardcover and was thrilled to have it offered to me. I'm going to start it as soon as I'm done with my current read.

The Angel's Game, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and The Blue Notebook, by James Levine, also arrived; I know many of you have read and reviewed these already and I can't wait to get to them.

Finally, The End of the Jews, by Adam Mansbach, arrived via Bookmooch. It's a novel about several generations of a Brooklyn family; I'm looking forward to it.

This week I did something unprecedented- I didn't buy any new books. Don't ask me how that happened- I have no idea! What's unprecedented in your life this week?
