Friday Finds 1 (Jan. 27, 2023)
My TBR is giving me the side-eyebooksfridayFinds
A long time and a few blogs ago, I used to post Friday Finds, a tag where people posted cool new things they found. Mostly used for new titles that people discovered and added to their TBR list.
So, here are some books that I saw this week and got interested in. Except for the first one, all were seen in my last visit to the bookstore. The first I saw someone mentioning online, and it's still in pre-order.
The Lake House (Sarah Beth Durst)
I've read Drink, Slay, Love many years ago, and it's still a book that I will occasionally remember. So, when I saw that the same author was doing a "Yellowjackets meets One of Us Is Lying" fantasy book, I got instantly interested. I'm not big on YA, but I'll keep an eye on this one. Or maybe even pre-order the print edition since it looks GORGEOUS.
Yellowjackets meets One of Us Is Lying in this masterful survival thriller from award-winning author Sarah Beth Durst. “Formidably scary, Durst’s survival/horror story is the stuff of late-night campfire legends. With three deftly drawn, powerful girls at the center, reading feHarperCollins
Wild And Wicked Things (Francesca May)

Unseelie (Ivelisse Housman)
Took a pic because of the real nice cover, but I just saw that it has an autistic character, and it's written by an autistic writer. AND it's a duology. Did I ever tell you how much I hate that everything is a trilogy or longer series, and how much duologies needs more love?
This is so cool!! *adds it to store cart

Monstrous Heart (Claire McKenna)
My wife pointed those 3 BEAUTIFUL covers at the bookstore. And seems to blend a bunch of stuff that I'm into. Also, good to read something on sea/water, instead of on land.
A sensational debut novel: gothic, romantic gaslamp fantasy at it’s very best. A magical tale of intrigue on dangerous waters and a love story for the ages. Perfect for fans of V.E.
