Spring Break Reading Challenge Activity #1 - Scavenger Hunt

Karin Librarian is hosting the Spring Break Reading Challenge from Friday, March 12 - Sunday, March 21. There are lots of fun activities with prizes and a chance to get to know some fellow bloggers better. Head on over to the site and take part in the fun.
Here is today's activity -- a scavenger hunt.
So, here is what you need to find:
1 - Using keywords related to your interests, find a blog that is new to you. Be sure to give us the Blog Title, Link, and Short Description of the Blog.

Bookish in a Box is done by Erin who is a scientist by trade and a reader by hobby. She is an eclectic reader who reads a lot of YA and is an aspiring writer too. She recently reviewed one of my old favorites by Louisa May Alcott -- Eight Cousins.
2 - A blog belonging to an author from a book in your To Be Read pile (just a random one if you don't have a To-Be-Read pile).

The Road to Publication is Kim Derting's blog. It is interesting to read about the ups and downs of being a newly published author.
3 - A book releasing THIS MONTH you want to read.
The Body Finder by Kim Derting (March 16, 2010)
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

I have already pre-ordered this book and expect it late next week.
