Friday Finds



Here are the books I'm excited about this week:























Owly: A Time to Be Brave, by Andy Runton. Owly is one of my favorite graphic novel series for kids and I'm really excited to be reading #4 in the series.

An Almost Perfect Moment, by Binnie Kirshenbaum, is my July book club pick, about a Jewish girl obsessed with the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Confessions of a Shopaholic, by Sophie Kinsella. Don't usually read a lot of chick lit, but I was in the K section of the used bookstore looking for the Kirshenbaum book and since I have the movie sitting at home, I thought, "why not?".

Finally, Jarrettsville, by Cornelia Nixon, is a Civil War novel and a surprise arrival from Counterpoint. I'm very intrigued by it and look forward to perusing it soon.

What are you excited about reading this week? You can find out what others are into at ShouldBeReading.wordpress.com.

You'll enjoy Confessions if you just accept it for what it is - a light, fun read. An Almost Perfect Moment sounds wonderful.

Now I have to add Owly to my list. I'm looking forward to reading Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton, and Marcelo in the Real World by Fransisco Stork. Have a great weekend and happy reading.

Thanks for sharing Owly. Somehow this series escaped my notice. Think I'll order some for the store.

I was JUST at a meeting today and Owly was talked about as being "reading without words".

Such a cute graphic novel!

I haven't read any of the Owly books, but Nancy, my blogging partner has the same reaction as you. I'll have to pick this one up.

I keep hearing great things about Owly. Love the cover art :)

Confessions is good but it is pure fluff. I enjoy the series for some serious getting away time when I need it.
