Let's take a look at some book pretties Mho received!

The kind people at Dial sent this very different type of book to Mho. It comes out in March 2013 by debut author, Lauren Roedy Vaughn. Mho likes the purple bowling ball on the cover. Now he wants to go bowling. It's been a long time since Mho has picked up a bowling ball since he doesn't have fingers to put in the holes. Poor, poor Mho.

Synopsis: With frizzy orange hair, a plus-sized body, sarcastic demeanor, and "unique learning profile," Danielle Levine doesn't fit in even at her alternative high school. While navigating her doomed social life, she writes scathing, self-aware, and sometimes downright raunchy essays for English class. As a result of her unfiltered writing style, she is forced to see the school psychologist and enroll in a "social skills" class. But when she meets Daniel, another social misfit who is obsessed with the cult classic film The Big Lebowski, Danielle's resolve to keep everyone at arm's length starts to crumble.

Mho has been holding onto Level 2 ever since his crush, Lenore Appelhans gave it to him at BEA. Level 2 will be released on January 15th from Simon and Schuster and has a Matrix type element to it.Lenore tried to grab Mho and take him away from KB, but Mho is very dedicated to her KB. Poor, poor Lenore doesn't have a Mho of her own.

Synopsis: Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow drones, Felicia passes the endless hours reliving memories of her time on Earth and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and Neil, the boy she loved.

Then a girl in a neighboring chamber is found dead, and nobody but Felicia recalls that she existed in the first place. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, Felicia learns the truth: If she joins the rebellion to overthrow the Morati, the angel guardians of Level 2, she can be with Neil again.

Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself at the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind

How to Entice an Earl by Manda Collins will be released on January 29th from St. Martin's. Mho likes baby ducks, but he can't seem to find any baby ducklings in this book. KB tried to explain the whole duckling factor in the book, but Mho just doesn't understand. Poor, poor lack of baby ducklings for Mho.

Synopsis: Lady Madeline Essex is the last of the unwed “ducklings” in her family—and by far the most outspoken. But when she boldly enters London’s most notorious gaming house in search of fodder for her novel, even her sharp tongue can’t save her from the horrible crime she stumbles upon there. As luck would have it, first on the scene is the last man she wants to see her vulnerable. The one man who could tempt her heart…

Christian Monteith, the new Earl of Gresham, isn’t much for card rooms and gaming hells. But as a favor to his former commanding officer, he's investigating a gamester for espionage on the night that Maddie ventures in looking more enticing than he's ever seen her. Suddenly, his feelings for his friend aren't so friendly anymore. And when her curiosity brings the impetuous novelist to the attention of a madman, Christian will stop at nothing to protect her—from a sinister plot that is far more dangerous than any stolen kiss…

Mho loves book recs! Do you have any for him so he's not feeling so poorly?
