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.

#52. Monday Mourning

Monday Mourning by Kathy Reichs
Seventh in the Temperance Brennan series

Pages: 303
Finished: Aug. 7, 2007
Reason for Reading: next in the series
First Published: 2004
Rating: 5/5

First Sentence:

"As the tune played inside my head, gunfire exploded in the cramped underground space around me."

Recommend: Yes. This seventh entry in the Temperance Brennan series is just as good as expected. I won't give anything away, but this case quite made my heart pound as it somewhat resembled a true case which happened very close to where I live and that very same case was even mentioned in the text! Truly gruesome and page-turning, especially the last 50 pages, just as I expect when I read Kathy Reichs.

I'm in a bit of a quandary now. There are two books left in this series for me to read and a new one coming out this month. That makes me feel a bit sad knowing there are only three left to read until I have caught up with the author. So, I think I'm going to take a break from reading the rest for the moment and savour the fact that I still have three unread books ahead of me. Of course, I'm off to the library this afternoon and you never know I may not be able to hold back from picking up the next installment.
