All that I am, all that I ever was…

I am more than my mental health. I am more than my homelessness. I am more than any one aspect of me. I am Addy. And this is…

Friday Finds (February 22)

FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list. Whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).

Lost in the Barrens (Farlay Mowat)

Spotted in an op-shop a few days ago. I was drawn to it by the fact the author is Canadian :-) (Price $1)

The Map of Time (Felix J. Palma)

Being a lover of all things timey-wimey it’s not surprising I’d like to read this acclaimed book.

A Monster Calls (Patrick Ness & Siobhan Dowd)

I spotted this in the library earlier in the week. It looks beautiful and the premise intruiges me :)

The Teleportation Accident (Ned Beaman)

Another book I spotted in the library. Who wouldn’t want to read this after that synopsis? :p

A Stew or a Story (MFK Fisher)

Another op-shop purchase.The cover is what predominantly caught my attention. (Price 50 cents)

Under Wild Wood (Colin Meloy)

I read (and enjoyed) the first book earlier this year so this sequel warrants a read.

Triburbia (Karl Taro Greenfeld)

Another book I saw in the library. Never heard of it before but it sounded interesting :)

Given I’ve been abnormally busy this week I haven’t been able to spend as much time in libraries and op-shops as I would have liked. However, I did squeeze in a visit to an op-shop that’s currently having a 50% off book sale. Courtesy of this sale I present my Friday Finds for this week:

Praise

Praise was the very first book I read on Australian soil. I have many wonderful memories of sitting on Elwood beach relishing this marvellous book and am looking forward to revisiting it in the near future. (Price 25 cents)

The Devil's Garden

Although I’m a fan of Richard Montanari, I think the main reason I picked up this book was the ridiculous blurb. I thought *every* man was a man with a past…or is that just me? (Price: 25 cents)

The Long Earth

Although I’ve never been the biggest Pratchett fan (the only book of his I’ve read is Good Omens), I couldn’t pass up this brand spanking new release. Plus, it sounds rather intriguing. (Price: $1)

The Penguin Book of Australian Short Stories

Short story collections can be a bit hit-and-miss so I tend to approach them with trepidation. However I love Patrick White, Peter Carey and Henry Lawson, so hopefully this will be more hit than miss. (Price: 25 cents)

Wild Minds - Stories of Outsiders and Dreamers

I’m an outsider, a dreamer, a misfit AND an eccentric. I am absolutely hopelessly heroic and you can bet your ass the love I follow is absolutely vital. Why else would I follow it? I *had* to get this book! (Price: 25 cents)
