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. *All linked to Goodreads*
I haven’t really been finding too many books to add to my TBR so far this month and I honestly have been so busy with things going on in my life that I haven’t really been looking too hard. I’m also in this pretty big reading slump, which we all know is one of a bookworm’s worst nightmares! We’re almost halfway into the month of November and I only finished one book! UNACCEPTABLE! sigh. Let’s hope I can get rid of this reading slump ASAP!
Even though I haven’t been going book adding crazy to my TBR list, I was still able to add a couple to my TBR. Some is better than none, of course! Here are the two books that I added to my TBR this week.
The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry
GOODREADS DESCRIPTION: Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves. Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start… until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.
That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau. Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken.
Hello? by Liza M. Wiemer
GOODREADS DESCRIPTION: One HELLO? can change a life. One HELLO? can save a life.
Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma’s death.
Emerson: A guy who lives his life to fulfill promises, real and hypothetical.
Angie: A girl with secrets she can only express through poetry.
Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past.
Brian: A potter who sets aside his life for Tricia, to the detriment of both.
Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens’ stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope. Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia), narration (Emerson), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda), narration and drawings (Brian).
Have you added any new books to your TBR this week? If so, let me know in the comments and link me to your posts! With my failed attempts at reading and adding books to my TBR, I would love to know what you’re reading and what you have added to your TBR! 😀
I am so stoked that it is Friday, because HELLOOOO WEEKEND! I hope you have a great Friday and so sorry that this wasn’t the greatest Friday Finds post! Reading slumps ruin everything for me and it’s also been so busy at work and other life things, sigh. Hopefully all this changes soon!
