Friday Finds #19 & Stuff.


FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased). Hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

Hey 🙂

I hope everyone had a good week so far! It was definitely a busy one for me as far as work goes. I’m also in a kind of reading slump…I’m just really bored of the book I am currently reading and just not in the mood for reading it and I feel guilty if I start another knowing that I need to get this one done. Sigh. I did listen to the first three books in the Selection series and I actually really liked them, although I really hate America…ughhh. I didn’t really find too many books this month and it’s kind of depressing. I tried to find some right now as I am doing this post, because I felt like only sharing a couple would be a little lame…you know? So here is what I got for you guys today…


Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller
Fields of Elysium by A.B. Whelan


The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
The Uninvited: The True Story of the Union Screaming House by Steve A. LaChance
Are We Nearly There Yet? by Ben Hatch
Peter: The Untold True Story by Christopher Daniel Mechling

Are We Nearly There Yet? gives me the National Lampoon vibe, which is pretty cool because I love those movies so much! This is pretty much all I’ve really added to my TBR, so not really that many. These all sound like they might be good, so I guess we’ll see. I think I’m going to redo my TBR over on Goodreads. I need to reorganize it better. If I ever stop being lazy and wipe my computer, then I will get around to that. lol. I’m also going to be redoing my TBR jar too.


The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I was able to get The Iron King on Kindle for $2.99 this week and that was really exciting, because I really wanted to read this book. I also love Julie Kagawa!

What are some of the books that you added to your TBR this week? Link me to your posts or leave a comment below!


The boyfriend and I finished season three of Orange Is The New Black and we also caught up with season three of Orphan Black, which the season ends Saturday I believe, ugh. I really dislike finishing seasons of my favorite shows, because waiting for the next season is horrible. Hannibal started back up though, so that’s exciting. We haven’t gotten around to watching the episodes yet, but soon! Also, Under the Dome starts back up next week and Big Brother starts next week too, so I am excited about those!

So many of my favorite shows are returning. Doctor Who returns in a few months I believe, so YAY! I am so excited about it, because I am really loving the twelfth Doctor. He is definitely my second favorite! I actually didn’t think I would like him as a Doctor, but OMG I LOVE HIM!! I watch so many shows, lol. This is not even half of them, to be honest. I watch TV as much as I read. I love TV shows like I love buying books…I have so many. I also DVR them and then not watch them until I can marathon them or my DVR is yelling at me that it’s almost full.


Anyway…I should probably go! Before I go though, here are some of the posts I did this week:

I hope everyone has an amazing Friday!

  1. I know just what you mean about Orphan Black! I guess the fact that they only produce ten episodes per season keeps us wanting more. It sure does me anyway.

    I’m a bit ambivalent about Under the Dome. I started out really liking it, but my interest waned a bit mid-season last time.

    • It’s so sad that they only do 10 episodes a season. I NEED MORE!! Under the Dome did start out amazing and slightly wasn’t as good, but the ending of last season was pretty crazy and I’m really excited to see where it goes from there.

      • Thanks for letting me know about Under the Dome. I’ll give it another try. I seem to recall reading a recap of last season’s finale and it did sound pretty good.

  2. I was in a reading slump after I read Everything Everything. But then thank god I got over it fast. Audiobooks really help while you are in a slump or so it did for me. Every Last Word is on my TBR too. I really am into books which feature characters with disorders and syndroms becasue I really appreciate theirbprespective. Great Finds

    • I usually listen to a lot of audiobooks while I’m working, but even sometimes I get to the point that I just need a break from them too. lol. Especially this week, because I finished three audiobooks this week. After reading Everything, Everything I didn’t want to pick up another book for a few days. It just felt wrong to do so lol. I also didn’t want to leave the story behind for something else.

  3. Interesting collection you have there! I’m adding the following to my TBR: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, The Forbidden Wish, and Are We Nearly There Yet? I already have Fields of Elysium on my list.
    BTW, I ADORE the cover of the Ava Lavender book, so I’ve showcased it on my Saturday book cover meme, “Shelf Candy Saturday”! I credited you and your blog, of course.
    As for TV, I don’t get to watch much of it because I have a night job. However, I haven’t heard of this show you’ve mentioned. Are you in the UK? I’ve never seen a “Dr. Who” episode, either…..but I LOVE “Star Trek”! (The classic series.)
    Thanks for sharing your finds!! Here’s my own Friday Finds post:
