The eensy-weensy spider was a vicious killer.

Best books/graphic novels/series I've read so far this year:

Ex Machina by Brian K. Vaughan - graphic novel series about a superhero turned NYC mayor. 8 volumes so far.
The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman - graphic novel series about a post-zombie apocalypse America. 11 volumes - still waiting on library to get #11. Coming soon to tv.

Fire by Kristin Cashore - fantasy, sequel to Graceling. Supposedly teen, but that's much too limiting.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - sf, sequel to The Hunger Games. Same as above.
Terrier by Tamora Pierce - fantasy. Same as above.
Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce - sequel to above.

The Dragon Factory by Jonathan Maberry - sf/horror, sequel to Patient Zero. Brutal action, warped genetics, kickass hero.

A Night Too Dark by Dana Stabenow - mystery, newest in the Kate Shugak series, one of the best heroines around. Set in Alaska.
Shoot To Thrill by P.J. Tracy - mystery, newest in the Monkeewrench series, anti-authoritarian computer geeks team up with police. Set in Minneapolis mostly, Minnesota definitely.

Feed by Mira Grant - sf/horror. Post-zombie apocalypse with an emphasis on Internet bloggers. First in a trilogy, I think. Zombies, bloggers, a presidential campaign, a vicious conspiracy, lots of action. (Oh, and the title has a double meaning - zombie feeding and rss feed. The cover image is the rss image drawn in blood.)

Oh, and I'm up to 84 books so far this year ::beams sweetly:: [g,d,r]
