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.

69. That Furball Puppy and Me

That Furball Puppy and Me by Carol and Bill Wallace
Second book in the Grey Cat Trilogy

Pages: 83
Finished: Apr. 15, 2008
First Published: 1999
Genre: children fiction
Rating: 3.5/5

First Sentence:

"Ring ... Ring."

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

Comments: It is now winter and Grey continues to watch for the bird, Flea, to return but knows that he must wait until winter is over. Something strange is happening around the house and he hears the word 'grandkids' repeated often. Soon he founds out what that means and Grey experiences his first Christmas which has it's good points and it's bad points. But the worst thing of all is when the Mama opens her Christmas present and out pops a puppy. Grey is no longer the smallest pet in the house and somebody else is getting his tummy rubs. Grey is jealous and sets out to get the puppy out of the house. We enjoyed this second in the series. Not as much as the first but still a cute, fun story. The Wallace's books are a joy to read aloud and are wholesome stories to be enjoyed by all ages. We look forward to seeing Flea come back in the next book.
