In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

Jo Walton, Farthing
Alison Bechdel, Fun Home
Dave Barry, The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog
Stephen King, Lisey's Story
Frank Espinosa, Rocketo: Journey to the Hidden Sea

It was a light month, and the only thing that really stood out to me as an excellent book was Farthing. The rest were just ... insubstantial.

I am currently reading Castles of Steel by Robert Mssie. It's a long book, which I've owned for a while and it will take me a long time to read through, since I read very intermitently.

It's a good book.
