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.

25. Fables: The Good Prince

Fables: The Good Prince by Bill Willingham (Canada) -(US)
Fables, Volume 10

Pages: 228
Ages: 18+
Finished: Feb. 14, 2010
First Published: 2008
Genre: graphic novel
Rating: 5/5

First sentence:

A mess! A great big filthy mess!

Acquired: Received a copy through ILL.

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Comments: This is a big issue and I mean that literally and metaphorically. It's a nice, hefty book containing ten issues with nine of those continuing the title story. In the middle there is a one issue intermission that centres on the cubs. The main story, though, without giving anything away, focuses on a minor character who has been around since Vol. 1: Flycatcher, whose real name is Ambrose, and is better known to mundies as the prince who was once turned into a frog. Prince Ambrose takes centre stage and the action switches between him and the resident Fables as he undertakes a very important journey and mission. This book is a turning point in the series. Things will not be the same from the point forward. This was a fabulous issue! I loved it and am more eager than usual (if that is possible) to get my hands on the next volume.


  1. Yay, FABLES! I received the newest book in the mail the other night, but I haven't had time to read it yet...

  2. From what I've heard it joins Fables and Jack of Fables together storywise, right?

    That's what I've been lead to believe anyway so I was planning on reading the 6 Jack of Fables books before reading the newest one. Also thought I might as well read the novel since it was published first.

    I'm kind of a stickler for reading things in published order. So I don't miss out on an insider reference or two. LOL
