Friday Finds—June 17, 2011

Friday FindsThis week has been a pretty good week for book scouting. First, via Carl, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. It looks like a delightfully creepy gothic novel, and I can’t wait to read it.

[amazon_link id=”1590173759″ target=”_blank” ]When The World Spoke French[/amazon_link] by Marc Fumaroli was mentioned in this week’s History mailer from Any New Books. It’s a history of influence of France in the time period between the death of Louis XIV and the French Revolution.

Just today, I discovered [amazon_link id=”0345506014″ target=”_blank” ]Summer in the South[/amazon_link] by Cathy Holton via Darlene from Peeking Between the Pages. I love Southern gothic. Doesn’t it look good?
