Stonekeeper Heir: Curse After Sword; No End Pantone

Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword, by Barry Deutsch
The main character is a young orthodox Jewish girl who wants to slay dragons. And there's a vengeful pig. <3.

Amulet, vol. 1: The Stonekeeper, and vol. 2: The Stonekeeper's Curse, by Kazu Kibuishi
Kibuishi is one of my favorites. Glad there are 2 more of these to find and devour.
(45, 46)

The Heir: A Love Story, by Vita Sackville-West (nook, public domain)
Mannered but with spiky edges. I've been reading about Sackville-West for years, so it was satisfying to read some stories by her for a change.
(47, O12)

Angel: After the Fall, vol. 6: Last Angel in Hell, by Brian Lynch et al
A mixed bag. I like the main artists on this series a lot but the plot is kind of dubious. The Drusilla one-shot written with Juliet Landau was particularly good.

Angel: The End, by Bill Willingham et al
Oh man oh man. One of my favorite comic book writers took over the series. Much squeeing was had, and the story regained the compulsive qualities that made the show so good.

No and Me, by Delphine de Vigan
This book is a bit clumsy in places (esp. the ending) but overall I loved it. Sad and sweet, and the main character, a precocious 13-year-old, was of the believably impulsive and emotionally immature variety, rather than being "wise beyond her years." I was affected by how the author portrayed the narrator's severely depressed mother, as well.

Pantone: The Twentieth Century in Color, by Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker
Some glaring errors, but I didn't really care because it was so so so very pretty. Find a copy, and flip through it; you'll be glad you did.
