Finding Books with Water on the Cover | Searching Saturday

Searching Saturday is a weekly bookish meme created and hosted by me. The aim is to find new-to-you books that fit the topic for that week (which I post on the last Sunday of each month). It’s like a scavenger hunt, a bookish scavenger hunt! I search for the books at my local bookstore but you can also use Goodreads. For more information on the meme, go here. To see all the past topics and future topics, go here.

The book sounds pretty… different. It doesn’t sound like a book I would pick up but who knows, it might be great. What do you think?

It might just be that I’m an idiot, but this synopsis kind of confuses me? It’s gonna reveal us all as fools by talking about marriage, being a priest, loss of faith, a breakdown, world war II, and moving very far. What do those things have to do with me being a fool?

    I’m going to have to add a few of these books to my TBR list. Great post!

      Thanks for commenting and for the compliment! I checked out your blog and it looks great. You have yourself a new follower.

      I’d say it’s all about finding your own style (things like the kind of posts and graphics on your blog), especially when starting out. Try to communicate with other bloggers and your own followers as much as possible. Joining tag’s is a great way to connect. Don’t be scared of trying something new! If you have any specific questions or ever need help with anything don’t hesitate to ask! I’d love to help out 🙂

    How did I not find any of these books on my search!?
    I agree with what you have to say about Everything Love Is. It’s not for me either but it looks very pretty. The same thing with The Stars are Fire. I like the first two though especially Into the Water. I think I saw this one but the cover was very different.

    I finally participated in one of these searches. Such a struggle!

      I’m glad you liked some of the books I found! I must admit finding books for these weekly topics has become way easier since I started looking for them in the bookstore instead of Goodreads. It can be very tricky to find books but it looks like you found some good ones! I hope to see more of your Searching Saturday posts in the future 🙂
