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.

First Published: Aug. 2, 2011
Publisher: viz media

First sentence:
No luck with your letter?
Acquired: Received a review copy from Simon & Schuster Canada.

Reason for Reading: next in the series

Lag is in the process of writing a letter bullet which will hopefully connect his heart to Gauche and help him recover his own heart which he has lost.  We get  flashbacks to see exactly what happened to Gauche that made him lose not only his memories but his heart and become Noir the Marauder.  In the meantime Lag goes about some of us his regular letter bee duties where he learns more about how hearts can be connected to  each other and especially helps Sylvette to help someone make right something she was unable to do in her own past.  Lag meets up with the legendary Jiggy Pepper on his travels and the book ends with a bit of a shocker making the next book an eager read.  I'm liking the 3 mos publishing schedule for this series, just enough to keep you anxious for the next book but short enough that you don't forget what was going on.  Another great entry in the series.
