Friday Finds: Jan. 30

I post all my weekly discoveries on Sundays, but I like to highlight one or two books for this meme. For other Friday Finds, please click on over to Should Be Reading.




This week I found a great audiobook on Anastasia's blog Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog. This novel is, according to the publisher, "a darkly comic spoof of the serial killer genre." Anastasia says: "I can confidently say that if you like that sort of thing, The Serial Killers Club will make you lol." Visit her blog to read the full review.


I found this book from Audible.com's email newsletter. Here's a bit from the publisher's summary: The "richly seductive prose brings to life the color and scandal of 15th-century Venice. . . . [The book] is more than terrific historical drama; its a love story, an investigation into ancient religious secrets that haunt us today, and it's a story of intrigue replete with pulse-pounding chase scenes, murderous assassins, torture chambers and conniving, desperate characters. It's beautifully written, authentically detailed . . ."

Beth, I just might have to use my available Audible credit on The Book of Unholy Mischief!

The Serial Killers Club sounds good. I'll have to add that to the TBR. I actually have an ARC of The Book of Unholy Mischief, I need to get to it. :)

The Book of Unholy Mischief sounds interesting (kicking myself for passing on the book when it was offered).....esp since it was self published first and then only later picked up by a publishing house.

The Serial Killers Club sounds like a good one.

Beth, you know so much more about layout than me.
I wonder how I can make a very long post, using the same principle as drop-down menus (I will have to post a whole chapter on Saturday).
Could you perhaps help me?

I just bought The Book of Unholy Mischief, but haven't started yet. It sounds fantastic, doesn't it?
