Originally featured at Should Be Reading FRIDAY FINDS showcases the most interesting books I’ve encountered this week and added to my readinglist. I’m an ‘adding junkie’ and my TBR list at Goodreads is already exploding, but I still love to find new potential treasures. Below a selection of my newest finds; what about yours? Any interesting new books you’ve found lately?

  1. I also enjoyed Sweet Tooth and wrote a review about it last year. Have you read Saturday by Ian McEwan? That’s my most liked book of his, do you have a favourite yourself?

    • I haven’t read any of his work until now, but I have Atonement lined up to be read as soon as I finish the one I’m currently reading (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer). From what I’ve read on Goodreads about Sweet Tooth, the story of a female spy trying to infiltrate a literary circle, all set during the Cold War, sounds really promising. I will be checking out your review too to get a better idea… And I’ve just added Saturday to by TBR list. 🙂

      • Fantastic! Glad you have added Saturday to the TBR list, it’s the surprising story of a neuroscientist having a bad day, well worth reading. Attonement is one I’m yet to read, unusually I watched the film first, which was great, but I’m sure the book would be even better. Enjoy Sweet Tooth and it would be good to know what you think. 🙂

      • Thanks! As soon as I can find a copy of Sweet Tooth, I will move it to the top of my readinglist. After all the positive comments, I’m sure I will enjoy it!

  2. Thanks for the tips! I’ve added Elizabeth is Missing and Sweet Tooth to my TBR list. I don’t have any new finds to share, only old finds. I’m currently reading Dawn by Octavia E. Butler and finding it fascinating.

    • You’re welcome! Especially Elizabeth Is Missing intrigues me; I’ve seen what dementia can do to people, and from what I’ve read Emma Healey does a great job showing the reader what it is like to be around someone suffering from dementia.
      I normally don’t read sci-fi but Dawn sounds fascinating indeed. I’ve added it to my TBR list.

    • I’m excited about Kin too! I haven’t read any horror themed books in a while so I should try to read it anytime soon… Let me know what you think of it when you finish! 🙂

    • Everybody seems to be either wanting to read Sweet Tooth or loving it after finishing the book… I might have to move it more towards the top of my readinglist. Out Of The Easy sounds like a really interesting story set in the 1950s in New Orleans. I will be looking forward reading it. 🙂

    • That’s good to know! I just finished the book I was reading, and I’m probably going to start with Atonement later today. I’ve get to get my own copy of Sweet Tooth, but I will be reading that one in the future for sure. 🙂
