Friday Finds is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can discuss books that you’ve discovered over the course of the week and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list. They can be books that are new or used.  They can be ones that you’ve borrowed (library or friend), found online, heard about from a friend, etc.

Check out these new reads that have found their way to me!

einstein

From Goodreads:  1910 AD – Impending war with England has given Nikola Tesla the chance to build his dream: a weapon to end all wars. The American steam-powered Beowulf tank is larger than a house, and carries enough firepower to face an army. Beowulf also has a mechanical brain, embedded with the consciousness of Colonel Browning, America’s best military strategist.

From Goodreads:  Children will be thrilled with the adventures in outer space that predominate this action story. Who can resist when a few of earth’s ordinary citizens prove to be aliens from another universe?

A lost starship, mysteriously recovered after 40 years, gives Marion Justo the opportunity to learn about his family’s most prized possession. Given command of the Isian, disaster follows when intrigue separates the young captain from his father, and plunges him through an undiscovered space vortex, leaving him lost in an uncharted universe. It will take all his skill as a devout student of the Eight Pearls of Is to gain the trust of a terrestrial family, his only hope to avoid destruction.

What if Eternity is a place where decay cannot exist, and Time is a place where decay is rampant? What if current science and space travel is based on mediaeval thinking rather than higher level realities? Captain Justo from the Planet Is will challenge your core scientific beliefs and change the genre of Science Fiction forever.

From Goodreads:  Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves—she was able to shift to wolf form at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and as a result, she is forced to live in seclusion in Ireland’s countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed and defies the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin hunting her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine—far from everything she’s ever known.

In Maine, she crosses paths with the dark and rebellious Grey Donavan, and something ignites within her soul. There’s just one problem: Grey is human. Their instant connection turns into a passionate romance, and Ashling begins to believe she can create her own life outside of wolf laws. When she begins to uncover long-buried pack secrets—secrets that threaten to destroy all she holds dear—Ashling’s courage and tenacity are tested. Will she choose her deep and enduring love for Grey, or will she follow Old Mother’s path to her destiny?

patrick

Synopsis:  It’s the start of winter, and nine-year-old Patrick is beginning to feel crowded out of his own family.  His father’s friend, Linda, and her seven-year-old daughter Claire, are here for dinner again.  Then spring comes.  Not only is Patrick’s father planning to marry Linda, but she and Claire will be coming to live with them at the summer’s end.  That just won’t do.

So Patrick comes up with a big idea.  He’ll build a tree house where he can stretch out his arms and breathe.  But wait.  Will his father allow it?  Where will he find the perfect tree?  Who will give him a hand with the construction?  And, most importantly, will his own tree house really be the hideaway he hopes for, especially from the irritating Claire?

As autumn arrives, Patrick discovers some surprising answers to these questions – and learns a little about the meaning of family.
