Friday Finds!



Thanks to MizB for hosting this fun Friday meme!


I was so excited this week to discover that one of my all time favorite authors, James Rollins has a brand spankin' new book coming out in December. This is on the heels of another new book that just came out in June! How does this writer do it?? I have his June book, The Doomsday Key on deck to read next and can't wait to get to it. The Doomsday Key is part of Rollin's Sigma series, and they're all great.

His newest book, the one coming out in December is called Altar of Eden.

From the novel's jacket notes:

From "New York Times"-bestselling author Rollins comes his first stand-alone novel in more than five years. "Altar of Eden" combines the author's trademark elements of science, history, and breakneck suspense in a streamlined narrative.


I can't seem to find much about this book yet, and I really don't care! Because I've gotta tell you, any James Rollins novel is bound to be terrific, and as much as I love his series, his "stand-alones" are even better. Amazonia, Deep Fathom, Subterranean, Ice Hunt and Excavation were all just great and I can't wait to read Altar of Eden!

For a really interesting little peak into the thoughts of James Rollins, take a gander at this video:



WoooHooo!! Can't wait to finally read The Doomsday Key and really can't wait for Altar of Eden...

*Doin' the Snoopy dance......I'm a happy happy reader.....more dancing......*grin...

My husband is a big James Rollins fan so we got an audio version of The Black Order to listen to on a long road trip. I really enjoyed the book and have wanted to delve into more of Rollins' work ever since. And my husband will be very excited to hear there's another new one on the way!

I am shocked. There is an author who I have never heard of that is writing brilliant books and I completely missed him. I shall definitely add to my list. Thanks for the heads up.

This is great news! I've been hoing Rollins would write another stand alone book! Thanks for the heads up!
