Death at the Door by Carolyn Hart, 294 pages

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

Andy Capp Sounds Off by Smythe, 124 pages

Another one of my guilty pleasures, really no redeeming values except that I find them funny.

You're the Boss, Andy Capp by Smythe, 126 pages

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.

Beetle Bailey in the Soup by Mort Walker, 125 pages

Came across this at an used book store and had to pick it up.

Midnight Tales by Bram Stoker, 182 pages

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.

Whose Body by Dorothy Sayers, 252 pages

The first Peter Wimsey novel. I'm kind of upset that I hadn't read any of these before now.

Fables: Happily Ever After, 197 pages

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.

Dead Ice by Laurell K. Hamilton, 566 pages

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.

The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees, 354 pages

The latest book club book. A imaginary look at the love that could be behind the romance of Jo and Laurie from Little Women.

Naked by Eliza Redgold, 308 pages

A retelling of the Lady Godiva story. This was a very well-done historical look at what may lay behind the legend.

Anatomy of Evil by Will Thomas, 326 pages

I loved this book, my one complaint is it felt removed from the last book and didn't answer questions raised in the last book.

Fatal Enquiry by Will Thomas, 293 pages

I love Will Thomas' mysteries set in Victorian England featuring Cyrus Barker and Thomas Llewelyn.

In Real Life by Cory Doctorow & Jen Wang, 175 pages

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.

Bad Days in History by Michael Farquhar, 479 pages

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.

IZombie, Dead to the World by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, 144 pages

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.

Raisins and Almonds by Kerry Greenwood, 207 pages

Another great Phryne Fisher mystery. I love everything about these.

Dreams of the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn, 318 pages

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

The Anchoress by Robyn Cadwallader, 310 pages

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.

Such Good Girls, the Journey of the Holocaust's Hidden Child Survivors by R. D. Rosen, 257 pages

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.

Archie, Volume 3, The Best of Dan DeCarlo, 152 pages

A great way to relax before going to sleep.

Killer Gourmet by G. A. McKevett, 294 pages

These are just fun, fun mysteries in a great series. I like the fact that Savannah is always cooking or appreciating food but the book isn't interrupted with recipes.

Ruddy Gore by Kerry Greenwood, 207 pages

I think I liked the television episode of this book a little better than the book, but that doesn't happen very often.

Archie, Volume 2, The Best of Dan DeCarlo, 151 pages

Another great Archie collection.
