FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
Happy Friday all. This is my favorite day of the week. I’m still on vacation so it has been really nice to sleep in and enjoy the lazy days of summer. I’ll be sharing a few vacation pics next week on my Really Random Tuesdays post.
Lainy asked me about Otis, so I thought I’d share a pic of him I took this week. Here he is doing what he does best, relaxing. He is such a little ham, so much personality. He follows me around everywhere, he’s sitting on my lap now as I type this up.
On a bookish note, here are a few of the books I have discovered lately and have added to my ever-growing wish list:
Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire Paperback by Amanda Foreman
After reading and enjoying Marie Antoinette: The Journey by Antonia Fraser, I know I have to read more on this interesting time period. I also viewed the film The Duchess, which was very good and peaked my interest even more. Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, was also the great-great-great-great-aunt of Diana the Princess of Wales and a friend of Marie Antoinette’s.
Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir. This one grabbed my eye because Eleanor of Aquitaine is described as being “one of the great heroines of the Middle Ages” and I have heard good things about Alison Weir.
Antonia Fraser impressed me with Marie Antoinette: The Journey so I want to read more of her work.
Love and Louis XIV: The Women in the Life of the Sun King is just one of her books that I’ve added to my wish list.
What books have you discovered lately? Enjoy the weekend and happy reading 🙂
