Welcome to the 7th edition of Friday Finds-the weekly feature on my blog were I share with you all the books I have added to my TBR in the last week, and lament that my TBR will never get any smaller.
This week, well I added a whole lot of books to my TBR-which mostly considered of every book Brandon Sanderson had ever written. Lets get into it!
Brandon Sanderson’s Entire Literary Works
I added nearly every book that Brandon Sanderson had written to my TBR as I really want to read them. After loving ‘The Stormlight Archive’ and getting to hear him talk at a panel last month, so many of his books really interest me and I am so excited to delve into all the worlds he has created.
Write to Die by Charles Rosenberg
Hollywood’s latest blockbuster is all set to premiere—until a faded superstar claims the script was stolen from her. To defend the studio, in steps the Harold Firm, one of Los Angeles’s top entertainment litigation firms and as much a part of the glamorous scene as the studios themselves. As a newly minted partner, it’s Rory Calburton’s case, and his career, to win or lose.
But the seemingly tame civil trial turns lethal when Rory stumbles upon the strangled body of his client’s general counsel. And the ties that bind in Hollywood constrict even tighter when the founder of the Harold Firm is implicated in the murder. Rory is certain the plagiarism and murder cases are somehow connected, and with the help of new associate Sarah Gold—who’s just finished clerking for the chief justice—he’s determined to get answers. Will finding out who really wrote the script lead them to the mastermind of the real-life murder?
I had downloaded this ARC last year and never committed to reading it. Since I have got my Kindle, I have been trying to work my way through the ARCs I have and also read some upcoming releases. It has been a while since I have read a really good mystery book, so I am keen to start this one in the near future.
The Uploaded by Ferrett Steinmetz
Life sucks and then you die…
In the near future, the elderly have moved online and now live within the computer network. But that doesn’t stop them interfering in the lives of the living, whose sole real purpose now is to maintain the vast servers which support digital Heaven. For one orphan that just isn’t enough – he wants more for himself and his sister than a life slaving away for the dead. It turns out that he’s not the only one who wants to reset the world…
This is an ARC of a book to be released in early September. After loving Ready Player One, I have been on the lookout for more technology based Science Fiction books. The description sounds really interesting too and I have high hopes for this book.
The Rain by Virginia Bergin
It’s in the rain…and just one drop will kill you.
They don’t believe it at first. Crowded in Zach’s kitchen, Ruby and the rest of the partygoers laugh at Zach’s parents’ frenzied push to get them all inside as it starts to drizzle. But then the radio comes on with the warning, “It’s in the rain! It’s fatal, it’s contagious, and there’s no cure.”
Two weeks later, Ruby is alone. Anyone who’s been touched by rain or washed their hands with tap water is dead. The only drinkable water is quickly running out. Ruby’s only chance for survival is a treacherous hike across the country to find her father-if he’s even still alive.
The description really hooked me! I love disease and virus books and it is so scary to imagine a pathogen that is in the rain water. The reviews on Goodreads are mixed, so I am interested to see whether I enjoy it or not.
I hope you liked this weeks edition of Friday Finds. Let me know if any of these books interest you or if you have any recommendations for me!
