Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.


I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

#47. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. rowling
Number 7 in the Harry Potter series

Pages: 607
Finished: July 28, 2007
Reason for Reading: I'm a fan!
First Published: 2007
Rating: 5/5

First Sentence:

The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane.


Recommend: Yes! But only if you've read the others. This is not a stand-alone. Ahhh, the ending of Harry Potter is bittersweet. I'm so satisfied with the conclusion of this book and yet sad that this is the end. I was very happy that the major plot elements were reconciled in the way that I had hoped they would be. I found the first half of the book to be a slow read. Then in the middle, the pace picked up and the pages kept turning. I really enjoyed the book and think it is a very satisfying conclusion.

  1. I was satisfied with it as well. I thought she wrapped it up nicely and fittingly. I was hoping SO HARD that she didn't pull some crackpot ending out of her hat just to throw off those who were making predictions. :)
