Throat Hair with Snotflower Erotica


The Sexy Librarian's Big Book of Erotica edited by Rose Caraway. How can I not order something with a title like that?

Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk.  I've never read one of his books. This has young female lawyer trying to stop a megabillionaire from starting a sex toy empire with devices that drive women to lock themselves away for hours.

Map of Betrayal by Ha Jin.  Isn't Ha Jin is big deal in the book world? Kinda like Bill Crider, but with stories about China instead of Texas?  China is 3,332,347 square miles larger than Texas.

Broadchurch by Erin Kelly. I know a woman named Erin.  She knows another woman named Erin and the first Erin says she and the second Erin are very much alike. I don't know anything about this third Erin, the author. The book is based off a TV character.

Reborn: a Dead Man adventure by Kate Danley, Lisa Klink, and Phoef Sutton. If you're reading this one hoping to go on your blog and write "Klink goes klunk" prepare yourself for disappointment. Klink does some fine writing work. I don't know about the other two. Sutton sounds familiar...oh, he did another Dead Man entry. I like this series.

Mermaids in Paradise by Lydia Millet.  Some sort of novel about something to do with mermaid sightings in the Caribbean.

Love Song by Elizabeth Lowell. Re-pub of a paperback that was called Love Song For A Raven. Ravens are big birds, their wingspans can go as far as 46.4 inches.

Sometimes the Wolf by Urban Waite. Urban Waite? That sounds like an English name.  Well, this dude lives in Seattle. But, Waite's acknowledgments list a fella named Nat Sobel who was also thanked by author Neville Stuart in a book I just read. Stuart is Irish, so I'm gonna say "close enough" and that Waite is Scottish.


Debt to the Bone-Eating Snotflower by Sarah Lindsay.  What a title! I think Lindsay won some award for this one.  Oops. I was just trying to find out what award this won and found out Lindsay went to St. Olaf. That may be a deal breaker. Go Gusties!


Big Book of Hair Metal: the illustrated oral history of heavy metal's debauched decade by Martin Popoff. Page 126 says, "I was more into the Stones, actually."

TABE Power Practice by Learning Express. Test prep for whatever the TABE is.

100 Card Games For All the Family by Jeremy Harwood.  100 new opportunities for everyone to fight and cheat.

The Essential Guide to Life After Bereavement by Judy Carole Kauffmann and Mary Jordan.

People I Want to Punch In the Throat: competitive crafters, drop-off despots, and other suburban scourges by Jen Mann. Woman gets upset with people. Woman complains on blog. Woman gets book deal.

The Ore Knob Mine Murders by Rose M. Haynes.  OUtlaw motorcycle gang moves to rural North Carolina. Outlaw motorcycle gang has business trouble. Outlaw motorcycle gang tries to solve business trouble by pushing people down a mine shaft.

Pay Any Price: greed, power, and endless war by James Risen.  Investigative reporting into government excess and screw-ups by a Pulitzer Prize winner. Dang, no photos.
