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.

44. Lucinda's Secret

Lucinda's Secret by Tony DeTerlizzi and Holly Black
The Spiderwick Chronicles, Book 3

Pages: 108
Finished: Feb. 27, 2008
Reason for Reading: next in the series, read aloud to my 7yo
First Published: 2003
Genre: children, fantasy
Rating: 4/5

First Sentence:

Jared Grace took out a red shirt, turned it inside out, and put it on backward.

Comments: The story keeps progressing at breakneck speed! The book is too short and too plot driven to give a synapses without giving away any spoilers. I have to say that each book gets better and better. More secrets about Arthur and Lucinda Spiderwick are revealed and mention is made of the evil Mulgarath. These are perfect read aloud books and the 7yo is clamouring for more, as am I.
