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.

Lady Friday

Lady Friday by Garth Nix
Number 5 in The Keys to the Kingdom Series

Pages: 304
Finished: July 11, 2007
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.
Rating: 4/5

First Sentence:

Leaf woke with a start and sat up in bed.

Recommend: Yes. This is the next book in the series and would not make sense if you hadn't read the first four but if you are reading the series don't miss out on this one. Action packed from beginning to end, Arthur continues his quest for the Keys and the next part of the Will, this time he's after the Fifth Key and must face Lady Friday. My only problem with this book was that my favourite character, Suzy Turquoise Blue, didn't show up until about the halfway point. I love the complex world in this fantasy series and I also love the play on words, such as the new character we meet, Peter Perkin Paper Pusher.
