I discovered a new blog the other day:  Fyrefly's Book Blog.  Maybe the title gives you a clue to some of her reading preferences.  What I enjoyed most about her blog is the inclusion of haiku book descriptions! 

Recently, I was considering returning to the 6 word sentence reviews, but Fyrefly's haikus would put them to shame.

Here is the haiku in her review of Indigo:  In Search of the Color that Seduced the World by Catherine E. McKinley:
Being obsessed with
indigo is not the same
as loving blue jeans.

More books in the mail:  

Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax-- an ARC from Joan Schulhafer Publishing; three strangers are left with  part ownership in a ramshackle beach cottage when their financial manager disappears with all of their money.

and Tout Sweet -- a memoir by Karen Wheeler, who decided it was time for a change.  She left her career as a fashion editor, left London behind, and purchased a house in rural France.  From Sourcebooks Publicity.
