Friday Finds

Inspired by Danielle’s ‘Friday Finds’ posts on her blog, Stories Unfolded, I decided to give it a try. Each week on Friday, I will give an update of the novels I was approved to read that week from NetGalley. I already keep an ongoing list of my upcoming book reviews, but I like the idea of sharing which new books I’m excited to add to my TBR (To-Be-Read) list.

I currently have 13 books on the list, so I’m only going to share the ones that I’ve been approved for this past week.

YumUniverse

by Heather Crosby

Release Date: October 28, 2014

What’s it about?

Adding more plant-based, gluten-free foods into your life just got a lot tastier.

Whether you’re transitioning to a completely plant-based diet or you just want some ideas for how to prepare scrumptious veggie dishes, Heather Crosby provides a step-by-step guide to adding good stuff into your existing routine.

Why I’m excited…

When I saw what this book was about, I was excited because my older sister eats gluten-free. She gave up gluten and dairy a long time ago, and she raves about how much better she feels. I’m looking forward to trying recipes from this book, both for myself to eat healthier and possibly to help my sister find something new and delicious that she can enjoy eating.

Hello from the Gillespies

by Monica McInerney

Release Date: November 4, 2014

What’s it about?

For the past thirty-three years, Angela Gillespie has sent to friends and family around the world an end-of-the-year letter titled “Hello from the Gillespies.” It’s always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself—she tells the truth….

Why I’m excited…

I was completely sold on reading this book when I saw a quote that McInerney’s writing is comparable to Maeve Binchy. It sounds like a wonderful story about family life and the strength that you can share when faced with hardship.
