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.

#51. New Moon

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
second in the Twilight series

Pages: 563
Finished: Aug. 4, 2007
Reason for Reading: next in the series
First Published: 2006
Rating: 4/5

First Sentence:

I felt like I was trapped in one of those terrifying nightmares, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can't make your body move fast enough.

Recommend: Yes. A stunning sequel to Twilight. This book is even better than the first, which is often not the case with sequels. I still don't like the character of Bella but the angry language that riddled the first novel is much less frequent this time around. The story was amazing, page-turning. We are introduced to the werewolves and my favourite character of this series, Jacob, whom we met briefly in last novel. The mythos the author has created for her vampires and werewolves is unique and compelling. I can't wait to read the next book, Eclipse, due out this month.
