Blog Link Up # 5 - 2/22/09

It's time to give you the Weekly Link Round-Up.  The blog group has picked out some good posts for you this week - Enjoy!

Have you seen the Slanket?  Well, if you've been coveting this robe/blanket combo, then this is the post for you!  Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? has 2 to giveaway.  There are many ways to earn extra entries, so get over there and check it out.
Now for the reviews:
Devourer of Books got her hands on LibraryThing Early Reviewer's copy of The Sonnets by Warwick Collins.  She says, "What was the inspiration behind Shakespeare’s sonnets?"  The book addresses that question.  She confesses that the book was just not for her though.
Beth of Beth Fish Reads has reviewed More Home Cooking by Laurie Colwin.  More Home Cooking is a collection of 45 food - focused essays compiled after Colwin's death.  This is not a new book; it was first published in 1993, but copies are still available.
Over at My Friend Amy's, she has what she calls, a "heavy read."  Winter in Madrid by C.J. Sansom is one to pick up if you are into historical fiction.
While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky, was reviewed at Marta's Meanderings this week.  It is a Random House book that is out this month.  Marta absolutely loved it!  She said it is going on her list of all time favorites!
Bermudaonion has a review of Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani for you.  This is the first book in a new trilogy, and although it's not Kathy's favorite by Trigiani, she enjoyed it.  Make sure you watch the video she has posted of the author talking about the book.
Finally, over at Wendi's Book Corner, you will be amazed at the cakes!  Yes, she has reviewed Confetti Cakes for Kids by Elisa Strauss with Christi Matheson.  She says, "This book contains everything you need to know to complete an entire cake that will be both fun and tasty!"  She tried the frosting making a Cars cake for her son.  You can see a picture of it on her site.
That's the round-up for this week; what did you think?  Each week it just seems to get better and better.  Come back next week to see what we've rounded up for you!

Very cool that you do this - I love links. But one leads to another leads to another and then after a while I forgot what the heck I was doing to begin with!!!
