The Book of Unholy Mischief is sitting on my desk and Swapna really liked it!! SQUEEE!!!
Beth Fish got me to put The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly on my wish list. I love legal thrillers, and she doesn’t like legal thrillers but loved this book. That’s one of the highest recommendations a book can get, in my opinion.
Amy did an excellent post on How to Spot a Christian Fiction Book. It’s a really great post, but be careful what you avoid, because while I don’t seek out Christian fiction, one of my favorite books of all time is Christian fiction. So if you avoid it, you may miss out on some really great reads.
Marta is giving away a copy of The Terror by Dan Simmons. She says it’s “stupendous”. HOW CAN YOU NOT ENTER. She also says, “The story combines sci-fi, thriller and historical fiction all in one incredible story.” This book sounds awesome!

This handpainted Pooh journal is the cutest thing evar. I wish my mom was half as cool as hers. 🙁
