If not for ants (and aunts, ha) I would be sleeping; ah well. Time to start catching up the book list.

5. Daisy Kutter: The Last Train Job by Kazu Kibuishi.

This is a lovely little graphic novel that mixes robots and the Wild West, and I would highly reccomend it to anyone. It's a tightly woven story centered around a crankily retired, poker-playing ex-thief and her partner-turned-sherrif -- and, of course, one last train robbery. The art itself is beautifully paced and laid out to enhance the flow of the story. While complex enough to be enjoyable for adults, the violence is presented in a way I would feel comfortable letting a teen or pre-teen read. 5 out of 5, and a high five to boot. :)

6. Box Office Poison by Alex Robinson.

Now this one, this one is not so all-ages. Another graphic novel, Box Office Poison is a twentysomething tangle of relationships, life choices, sexuality and, you know, occasional bouts of emo self-recrimination. Like twentysomethings are prone to. Think Friends, with realism and without the laugh track. It's an interesting, meaty read, if not the most fun. 4 out of 5.


1. Ten Little Indians by Sherman Alexie [5/5]
2. The Summoner by Gail Z. Martin [4.5/5]
3. The Blood King by Gail Z. Martin [4/5]
4. Witch & Wizard by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet [2/5]
