Friday Finds is Back!

Bad Marie, by Marcy Dermansky

I know, you were wondering what happened.
Bad Marie, by Marcy Dermansky, is one I've been meaning to pick up. I was offered it for review by Harper Collins and passed on it; I regretted that almost immediately! I got it at RiverRun Bookstore in Portsmouth last weekend.
Secret Asian Man, by Tak Toyoshima

Secret Asian Man: The Daily Days is a compilation of the Secret Asian Man comic strip that ran in the Weekly Dig, a Boston newspaper. I loved this comic and I was thrilled to find the book.

Doctor Zhivago, by Boris Pasternak
Finally, I picked up the new translation of Doctor Zhivago, just out this week from Random House.  Gorgeous! I love this book and I'm thrilled to be participating in the Group Read being run next month by Frances at NonSuchBook.

This is my first attempt at a video blog; I think I'll try making a more polished one for next week with next week's finds but for now I bring you- me!

Had Dr. Zhivago in my hands at the bookstore yesterday but, given how far behind I am with Madame Bovary, decided to hold off for a while.

I'm excited about Bad Marie too. I didn't know there's a new translation of Doctor Zhivago - I'll have to buy that for my mother.

Bad Marie looks really interesting and I had not really heard of it before. I will be interested in reading your review. Also, I have never read Dr. Zhivago, and am curious about that one as well!

Bad the title! :)

I enjoyed reading Dr. Zhivago several years ago.

NIce job on the vlog! I read Bad Marie last month. Really interesting character, that Marie :) I checked Goodreads for my rating: 4/5 stars.
Loved Dr. Zhivago when I read it eons ago (for a Russian History class). Just a wonderful novel.
Have a great weekend!

Ooh! You're so different than I imagined you. Fun to finally get a true picture!

I need to go pick up my copy of Doctor Zhivago this weekend too. I've tried to read it multiple times in the past but never got going with it. I'm hoping the group read helps!

Great vlog, Marie! I have an ARC of Bad Marie that I picked up at BEA, but I haven't read it yet. Enjoy your books!
