Friday Finds

Friday Finds is a weekly event started by Should be Reading where you share the books you’ve found throughout the week. These don’t have to be purchases, just books that you added to your TBR.

Here are the books I’ve added to my TBR this week:


Slated by Teri Terry

This one seems promising. I love the plot idea, a young girl who has had her memory wiped and is told she was a terrorist. Children who are 'slated' like Kyla are then sent into foster-care and given a second chance at their lives.


This one sounds so fun! It's a love story told in several perspectives - from the best friends to a delivery guy. It comes out late August and I can't wait to get ahold of it.


When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle

A retelling of Romeo and Juliet in Rosaline's point of view. I tried to read this when it was free on, however it didn't grab my interest at the time. I believe I was just looking for a different type of book, so I'm going to give this one another shot.


The View From Who I Was by Heather Sappenfield

This one seems so mysterious. I can't really tell enough from the blurb to give any kind of summary myself - it seems like some force (maybe uncontrolled magic?) caused Oona's body to try freezing itself to death as she watched in an out-of-body type of experience. It comes out in January next year.


I also added Royal Wedding and From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess by Meg Cabot, which I found pretty exciting! Neither of them have covers yet and both are set to be released in 2015. Royal Wedding continues The Princess Diaries with an adult Mia and Michael (!!!) and From the Notebooks... is about Mia's long lost half-sister. The second seems a bit iffy to me, but of course I'll still be reading.


  1. The only one of the list I've read is Slated and I loved that book! It's a really great dystopian series!

  2. I'm so glad to hear it! I haven't gone through reviews or anything so I really had no clue what to expect, but it sounds so good!

  3. I'm really excited for A Little Something Different too. I entered to win it a few times, but I didn't get it. Oh well. There's always release day.

  4. I tried to get it early too - couldn't find any review copies when I looked! I'll probably be buying it soon as it comes out, as long as I don't have a long to-read list by then.

  5. I've never heard of "When you Were Mine", it sounds really interesting. I read "Romeo and Juliet" a long time ago, so I think I'll read that first and go onto Rebecca Serle's take on the story!

    Thanks! x

  6. Glad you'll be reading :) The reread is probably a good idea too if you don't remember much!
