Friday Finds-June 12


Should Be Reading asks you to share what books you discovered this week that interest you!

This week I have been enticed by Sunnyside Blues by Mary Carter from a few blogs! Booking Mama and A Novel Menagerie gave rave reviews of this book and both have contests to win it! I also read a great review of this book over at Book Chatter and other stuff.


Here is a summary of Sunnyside Blues from Mary Carter's website:

Twenty-five-year-old Andes Lane has spent nine years moving restlessly from place to place as she searches for somewhere that feels right. In the little blue houseboat bobbing on a Seattle lake, she thinks she’s found it. But Andes has barely had a chance to settle in before her new life is upended by her landlord, Jay, and his ten-year-old son, Chase.

Smart, secretive, and precocious, Chase touches a chord with Andes even as he plays on her last nerve. When Jay needs someone to take care of Chase temporarily, Andes agrees to accompany the boy to Sunnyside Queens, on a quest she’s sure will prove fruitless. But in this new, strange, and unexpectedly welcoming city, Andes will confront the secrets she tried to leave behind and the lies that have kept her running. And against all odds, she’ll discover a place, a man, and a newfound peace of mind that feel very much like home. . . .

So what new books caught your eye this week?
