Friday Finds

This week's Friday Finds comes from Book Club Girl. Her book club has decided to read Anybody Out There? by Marian Keyes. The story follows Anna, who one day wakes up in her mother's house to find she has lost all memory of how she got there. She then begins a journey through the use of psychics and mediums to find out what happened. I haven't read anything by Marian Keyes and this book sounds like my cup of tea. I already received an email from the library saying that they are holding a copy for me, so hopefully by next week I will have a review to share!

I also wanted to announce that I have chosen my second selection for the 1% Well Read Challenge. I will be reading I'm Not Scared by Niccolo Ammaniti. If you missed the review of my first selection (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon), then click here. Next week don't forget to stop by and check out reviews of November 22, 1963 by Adam Braver and The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamant (my book club's April selection). There will also be DVD reviews of The Duchess, Henry Poole is Here, and Death Race (I know, I know -- I am a sucker for Jason Statham).

Have a great weekend!

Man, you've got a lot of upcoming reviews!

I also checked out your Curious Incident review. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I read it with my book club a few years ago and it led to some excellent discussions.

I've not read this book, but I have read Last Chance Saloon by Marian Keyes. It was such a great book, Keyes is a great author! Hope you enjoy!

I've heard a million good things about Marian Keyes but for some reason never got my butt off the couch to get one of her books! This post will be the impetus to change that!

I haven't read Marian Keyes (except for one short story) but this does look good! :-) And now I'm off to read your review of The Curious Incident.

Sounds like an interesting premise. I'd love to see how she handles the psychics in the story.
