Findings of Note (5)

 Saturday Situation is a weekly meme hosted by Lori at Pure Imagination and Candace at Candace's Book Blog.  They link up reviews and giveaways each Saturday.  I link to it as well as include my findings of note: new books I've added to my TBR pile and fun blogs I've found during browsing.

Books of Note:
Virgin RiverVirgin River by Robyn Carr

This book is one I stumbled upon through Debbie's Book Bag who wrote a review about this romance regarding a nurse midwife and an abandoned baby.  Her wonderful review and the author's picture with her beautiful dog had me quickly adding it to my TBR pile on Goodreads.

Désirée: The Bestselling Story of Napoleon's First LoveDesiree by Annemarie Selinko

This book was another book I stumbled upon while reading Debbie's Book Bag.  It is a historical fiction novel written from the story of the beginning and making of Napoleon.  It covers Napoleon's first love and includes great French history.  As I do not know much about Napoleon, I am excited to find an interesting novel and great way to learn more about a time period I am ignorant about.  Debbie posted a review on her blog, so if you are interested, go check it out from someone whose read it and see if it's up your alley.

The Body FinderThe Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

The Body Finder is a book I found while reading Jessica's Haunted Halloween event.  She hosts an interview with Kimberly Derting and a giveaway of a swag pack from The Body Finder.  It is a young adult fiction novel (Goodreads link) that introduces us to the world of Violet and Jay.  Violet has the ability to feel the echoes the dead have left behind.  It is a mystery and involves crime (my latest kick), so it was instantly added to my TBR pile.  Jessica also reviewed the book, so you guys should go check it out.  She gave it a 5/5 so I'm super excited about it.

Blogs of Note:
I decided to forgo my blogs of note this week, because I am working on an award (yah!) post that will be giving the award to several new wonderful blogs I've found.  So check back for when I (finally) get that posted.  

Hope you have a great reading week - and head over to Saturday Situation to find some great reviews and giveaways.
