How to Catch a Bogle, by Catherine Jinks. I enjoyed reading this children's book-the idea was original and interesting, the writing was clever, and I finished it quite happily. However, for a kid's book, it had rather one too many foul words, so I probably wouldn't recommend it. :P
As for blogs, I recommend that of Anne Elisabeth Stengl. Currently one of my favorite authors of Christian Fantasy and a prolific blogger, her Friday Tidbits are especially wonderful.
