Friday Finds: A Mixture of Non-Fiction


Friday Finds by Should Be Reading

What great books did you hear about/discover this past week?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon

The Lost City of Z by David Grann

Now, I know this book is a few years old.  I remember seeing it at Borders when it first came out and everyone was reading it.  I read the synopsis and wasn’t interested so I never picked it up again.  Then, this week, I stumbled upon it again and gave the synopsis a read.  It sparked my fancy this time and somehow it has ended up on my TBR list!  Has anyone else read this, and if so what did you think?

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby

Ever seen this movie?  If no, you MUST!  The movie is one of my favorites and when this book was recommended to me on Goodreads, I yelled out, “Duh!” and instantly added it to my TBR list!

Honeymoon with My Brother: A Memoir

Honeymoon with My Brother: A Memoir by Franz Wisner

I love memoirs and haven’t read one in a while.  This particular memoir looks both touching and funny so I’m excited that I found it!

These are the three books I have found this week.  Have you read any of these?  

Have a Great Weekend All!
