Elena Abbott must contend with racism, sexism, and occult horror while she chases down a serial killer the police aren't pursuing. Only she can stop the murderer, but that's provided she survives. Beautiful art, superb storytelling, and fantastic characters. I had no idea how much I needed this comic until I picked it up.

Filled with fun facts about juvenile animals of all kinds! The drawings that accompany each fact are adorable and peppered with the author's poignant (and slightly painful) jokes. I had a tough time putting it down. Informational, cute, and great for cracking a smile and unleashing an "awwww" or two.

Noma Guide to Fermentation

 

One of the world’s greatest restaurants lets you in on its secret ingredients. With a little patient diligence any home chef can use fermentation to vastly expand the flavors they can create. I’ve already made two batches of lacto-tomatoes (my gazpacho will never be the same!). For the foodie, the scientist, and the home cook looking to take a big step forward.

With a country large and varied as the United States there likely will never be a definitive single-volume history. With These Truths Lepore gives us a largely political history though one informed by the many insights produced by changes in historical methodology over the last few decades. Lepore is always a joy to read. She keeps this book lively and entertaining by focusing on individual lives involved in some of the key dramas that illuminate the how and why of our past.

One of my all-time favorites and the perfect tale for a cold winter's night! Edith Pattou retells the Norwegian folktale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon," weaving a wild tale of curses, castles, blizzards, and white bears. (The sequel came out last month--a full 15 years after the first book--and it's just as much fun.)
