Friday Finds- Just a Few

"A smart beach book" is how I've heard French Lessons, by Ellen Sussman, described. Sounds good to me! It's set in Paris and looks like frothy fun.
Vanessa Diffenbaugh's The Language of Flowers is about a foster child who grows up into tenuous adulthood; it looks to be a wonderful book and I've heard great things already.
Finally, I picked up The Homecoming Party, by Carmine Abate, another Italian novel published by Europa Editions, for my ever-expanding collection.

I also found a first edition of Tim O'Brien's classic The Things They Carried, at the very moment when I was thinking about how much I would love to find one. And it was on sale!

What did you add to your bookshelf this week? Have a great Friday. More Friday Finds here.
