My Friday Finds are...
- The Strangler by William Landay - This was from my page-a-day calendar; this novel tells the story of one Irish-American family, a city under siege, and the long shadow cast by the most infamous killer of his day: the Boston Strangler.
- The Geography of Bliss: One Grumps' Search for the Happiest Places in the World by Eric Weiner - This was featured on the 5 Minutes for Books blog and is a nonfiction account of one travel writer's journeys to far-off lands, like Iceland, to find the world's happiest places.
- Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore - Another page-a-day recommendation, "Christopher Moore brings Jody and Tommy back from his widely-acclaimed 1995 Bloodsucking Fiends to prove that there is love (and lots of good sex) after death..." This write-up was for the 2007 sequel, You Suck: A Love Story, but I decided to put Bloodsucking Fiends on the list first.
- The Believers by Zoe Heller - This was blasted to me via Very Short List, and I was interested when I found out it had been written by the same woman who wrote Notes on a Scandal. Although I never read that particular book, I watched the movie (and LOVED it), so I thought her story lines are probably worth reading... probably actually better than the movies. We'll see.
So, those are mine. Show me yours. (Not like that, you sick-o, post your Friday Finds and link them up at "Should be Reading.") Post a comment and let me know if any of my Friday Finds will show up on your list next week.
