Friday Finds - March 19

This week's Friday Find isn't exactly a book I found this week. In fact, I've known about The Threadbare Heart for some time. I came across Jennie Nash's blog months ago and I like to think that we've struck up a friendship since then. In October, I read her book The Last Beach Bungalow (my review is here) and I fell in love with the characters she created. I also read Raising A Reader (review here) and highly recommend it for parents of young children.

Jennie and I were talking about her most recent book (at that time) The Only True Genius In The Family (which I'll be reviewing soon) and the book she was working on at the time. I told her I couldn't wait to read it and she made my little book loving heart do a flip when she said that she'd send me a copy of the manuscript. Really? Little old me? The day the manuscript arrived, I literally grabbed it to my chest. Then a little part of me started to panic. What if I didn't like it? What if it didn't touch me in the same way as the other books? Not to worry--I did and it did. Now I cannot wait for the rest of you to be able to read it! And Jennie has the most amazing plans for launching the book--you'll be hearing much more about this book come May!

To learn more about this book, Jennie and her other books, check out Jennie's website. And to get some insight into the daily workings of an author, follow her blog, Meet Your Muse.

Friday Finds is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.


  1. That's so awesome! I am definitely going to keep an eye out for this author - sounds like an awesome writer AND an awesome person ;)

  2. That is so exciting to get to read a book my a favorite author so early in the process. Can't wait for your review

  3. Jennie is a fantastic writer. I read The Only True Genius and loved it. I do have her other one on my reader - I just need some time to read it. I've got The Threadbare Heart as well and can't wait to read it - I'm holding off until closer to May though.

  4. I haven't had a chance to read anything by this author yet, but I'm glad to hear you enjoy her work so much. I'll have to give her a try one of these days.

    And how exciting that she sent you a manuscript of her book! I'd have done a happy dance myself. :-)

  5. wowwwwwwww...Lisa! You actually gotto read a manuscript! That's so cool!

    I will add this author to my list! I really need to read her, because you love her books so!

  6. Me, too! I'm on the tour, too. I read three of her books last year and am tingling with excitement to read this one.
