I like the Death on Demand books featuring Max and Annie.

It kind of bothers me that I like these comics since it basically revolves around Andy Capp drinking, living on the dole and hitting his wife. But these are still a guilty pleasure.

Bram Stoker was a messed up man based on these stories. I knew he had written Dracula but had never read any of his other horror tales. The Dualitists was so creepy and horrifying that I made my daughter and husband read it so I could talk about it with someone. I want this book for my own collection now.

The next to last edition of Fables. I'm not ready for this to be over, I've become way too attached to some of these characters and I hate to see them end. This series has been a rollercoaster of feelings.
The latest Anita Blake book. This book dealt more with the political and power struggles going on in Anita's life and had less of the sex and blood of some of the previous books so I enjoyed it more. I still think I liked the earlier books more in the series but I will continue to read her books.

An interesting graphic novel, showing how online gaming can affect your life, positively and negatively. It's interesting to see how many people are more vested in their online life than everyday life.

This book starts with January 1st and continues through December 31, looking at bad days that took place throughout history. The author has a twisted sense of humor and a love of history, so I always enjoy his books.

I'd watched the tv show but didn't realize it was based on comics. Very different from the show, both have a zombie named Gwen, but still really good and catching.

This was a great sequel to After the Golden Age. Coming to terms with superpowers, living in a family of supers.

This was a fiction book about a teenager anchoress, a holy woman who would shut herself away into a sealed up cell to devote her life to praying. I have to say I finished the book almost as confused as when I started.

The story of William Marshall, a youngest son who became a knight in the 13th century and worked his way to an earldom and regency through 5 kings. This was a fascinating piece of history.

This was an informative but severely depressing book about Jewish children who were hidden by their parents during the Holocaust by being given to mainly Catholic people to raise. The psychological scars it left behind are sad. This was a horrible time in history.
