Superman/Wonder Woman Volume 1 by Charles Soule & Tony Daniel, 193 pages

The new 52 is the revamping of the comic book world and Wonder Woman and Superman are hooking up. When you're two of the most powerful people on Earth, you're not allowed to have a normal relationship. This was GREAT! I'm now collecting this series along with my regular Wonder Woman subscription.

Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson, 272 pages

Something I came across and picked up. Wasn't a bad read. Didn't see the ending coming.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore, 389 pages

A look at the history of the creator of Wonder Woman, his alternative lifestyle, and the early days of Wonder Woman. As a Wonder Woman fan, this is an absolute must read.

Vixens, Vamps & Vipers by Mike Madrid, 254 pages

A great look at the bad girls who filled the comic books during the heyday of the Golden Age of comics.

The Adventure of the Plated Spoon and Other Tales of Sherlock Holmes edited by Loren Estleman, 272 pages

I love Sherlock and there isn't anything better than a short story collection featuring new pastiches by good authors.

The Devil in the Marshalsea by Antonia Hodgson, 384 pages

A murder mystery set in 1727 London's debtor prison. This was fascinating and I'm glad I got to review it for NightOwl Reviews.

Cloudsplitter by Russell Banks, 758 pages

Our book for book club this month. It is the story of Owen Brown, one of John Brown's, of Harper's Ferry fame, sons.
A little dry at times and not always an easy read. It took me 6 days to finish this because it just didn't really grab me.
