Hello! I have nominated you for a "Sugar Doll Blogger Award"! Participation is optional, but I'm curious to see what blogs you consult. Visit me at if you would like to jump through the hoops. (It's okay if you don't want to!)

I agree about Going Bovine, but I had to throw in another weird, hilarious book about a teen going through something possibly fatal: Jack Tumor. Loved it!
