I haven’t played along in a while and I have recently added a few more finds to my TBR and thought, well, it’s as good a time as any to share some books and spread the love.
A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner. This is the fourth book in the series. I enjoyed the first, The Thief, and hope to make my way through the series this year. Luckily, my library has the first three in the series. The books are YA fantasy and I’m feelin’ like a little fantasy in the coming weeks.
The Dead Travel Fast by Deanna Raybourn. Gothic romance set in 1858 Scotland and Transylvania. I don’t read much romance but there’s something intriguing about Scotland (OK, I’ll read almost anything that’s set in Scotland. Really, I will.) and Transylvania with a little bit of the paranormal thrown in the mix.
Kraken by China Mieville. An alternative London where magic and myth reside side by side. It’s the end of the world and everyone is fighting to either bring it about or stop it. I don’t need anymore than that, just please sign me up for this one!
Friday Finds is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Leave a comment here with a link to your own finds, or share your answers at Should Be Reading. Happy Friday.

Wow, Kraken… WANT IT NOW. It doesn’t come out until June… which means I’ll probably use this as my Waiting on Wednesday pick. 🙂 Thanks for posting it!
My Finds are at The Crowded Leaf.
I know! I can’t wait for this one.
‘Kraken’ sounds cool and who doesn’t love Scotland!
I keep trying to convince my hubby we should go to Scotland for a vacation but he’s not buying any of my reasons…yet. 🙂
They all sound good! I see you’re reading The Greatest Knight right now. I just added that to my tbr list this morning 🙂
I’m just a few chapters in but really enjoying it.
I haven’t seen that Deanna Raybourn book before. I like her other writing, but am not really into paranormal or I would pick this one up.
Ooh, this reminds me that I meant to add China Mieville’s book “The City and the City” to my TBR list. Thanks! 🙂
