Twitterature and Book Candy

I feel like I've been on a roll book-wise. I've enjoyed all the books I've read, and I've found some great bookish links. So I want to share both with you! To start with, here are my brief tweet-style reviews (140 characters or less) of what I've been reading.

Swept off Her Feet by Hester Browne. Cutesy Scottish chick lit starring klutzy heroine. Not amazing by any means, but fun. And... no sex! So I recommended it to my mom.

Nightmare in Burgundy * by Jean-Pierre Alaux. Bizarre Biblical graffiti, lots of wine, beautiful Burgundy, curious winemaker does a bit of detecting about nature of said graffiti.

The Care and Management of Lies * by Jacqueline Winspear. I expected to really love this (because: MAISIE!). But I merely liked it. Tragic WWI story about letters between newlyweds. Sob.

I Am Half-Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley. Flavia De Luce is the BEST. If I'm ever murdered, I want a precocious 11 year old chemist on the case. I adore the 1950s British setting.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. Irresistible. I meant to pace myself to not get ahead of the YABMC. But I read the whole book in 1 day

The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie. Classic mystery at its finest. I really liked the cover of the e-book version I read. #missmarple

The Reluctant Assassin by Eoin Colfer. Time traveling evil Victorian magician meets nemesis: teenage FBI agent. Completely preposterous. But rather fun on audio. (Free from Sync!)

When the United States Spoke French: Five Refugees Who Shaped a Nation by Francois Furstenburg.* See, I do read nonfiction sometimes. #americanhistory #fascinating

And then, here are the bookish links I've been enjoying lately!
