Friday Finds

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading.

I've been a little delinquent in posting my WL additions, but this past week I found some interesting ones in my book store browsing.

Trail of Crumbs: Hunger, Love, and the Search for Home by Kim Sunee. At a South Korean marketplace, three-year-old Kim Sunee's mother deposits her on a bench with a fistful of food and a promise to return. Three days later, a policeman takes the little girl and what is now a fistful of crumbs to a police station, where she learns that her mother isn't coming back. From here, her extraordinary life journey begins.

The Disorder of Longing by Natasha Bauman. When her husband arrives home carrying a crate of colorful orchids, Ada Caswell Pryce thinks he is bringing her a gift, a peace offering during an unhappy time in their marriage; little does she know how much these strange looking flowers are going to change her life.

Christine Falls by Benjamin Black
In the debut crime novel from the Booker-winning author, a Dublin pathologist follows the corpse of a mysterious woman into the heart of a conspiracy among the city's high Catholic society. This is the first book in the series.

All of these sound really good! I have heard a lot of good things about Christine Falls, I hope you enjoy it!

Those sound good! I hope to read Christine Falls someday soon. The other two are new to me titles, but they both sound good. Onto the wish list they go!

The Disorder of Longing and Christine Falls are on my list as well:)

Christine Fall is fantastic! I also randomly picked up the sequel, The Silver Swan, and a few pages into it, my heart started racing when the characters sounded familiar!
