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.

65. More About Little Pear

More About Little Pear by Eleanor Frances Lattimore
Fourth (and final) Little Pear book

Pages: 125
Finished: Apr. 9, 2008
First Published: 1971
Genre: children fiction
Rating: 4.5/5

First Sentence:

Little Pear was a Chinese boy.

Reason for Reading: next in the series. Read aloud to my 7yo

Comments: Little Pear is 7 years old now and has finished his first year of school. It is now summer vacation and his days are free to spend with his family and his friend, Big Head. Each book in this series has been just as good as the others and this one is no exception. The love for China and its people shines through on each page and Little Pear is one of the most charming characters in children's literature that we have met. This is the final book about Little Pear and he will be sadly missed by both the 7yo and I.
