Friday Finds

Happy Friday everyone! I'm home with a bit of a cold so have been able to do a bit more reading - and browsing. Don't worry, it's nothing serious, but I've accepted and embraced my paranoia since I got pregnant. Now if I can only survive the next three months without getting the flu I would be very happy!

Anyway, here are some books that have recently caught my attention:

House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer


3M finished the Dewey's Books Reading Challenge and I saw her review of this book as part of her wrap-up post. I love YA dystopian novels too so it immediately went on my wishlist!


The Number Devil by Hans Magnus Enzensberger


I've heard about this book before, but raidergirl just reminded me that I never got around to reading it. It's a mathematical adventure and I love math (or I've probably forgotten the horror of math class and can now say I love it, since I'm under no obligation to learn it) so am looking forward to finally getting this.


Numbers by Rachel Ward


Charley at The Bending Bookshelf recently reviewed this - a novel about a young girl who can see a person's 'numbers', i.e. when they're going to die. Great idea for a story, I'm definitely intrigued!

Hope you like House of the Scorpion as much as I did!

The Number Devil sounds pretty cool. In fact, I'm going to add that to my list as soon as I post this comment. And thanks for mentioning my review of Numbers!
