Welcome

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.

illustrated by John Steven Gurney
Third book in the Gray Cat Trilogy

Pages: 89
Finished: May 26, 2008
First Published: 2001
Genre: children, fiction
Rating: 3.5/5

Reason for Reading: read aloud to the 7yo. next and final book in the series.

First sentence:

I loved sitting in the House Mama's lap!


Comments: Chomps and Gray are friends, summer is coming and Flea is expected back any day now. Comps and Gray spend their time together having fun and trying not to get into trouble with Mama but they just can't help it. Then one day after Flea arrives home the Mama is missing and in terrible trouble. It is is up to the three friends to get help for her.

This was a wonderful ending to this series. Full of fun and humour. The ending was quite intense with danger and the 7yo was caught up in the race to rescue Mama. Overall, a fun series for little ones, about ages 6-8.
