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.

Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Publishing.

Reason for Reading: My son loves these books and I always read them first before handing them over for bedtime story time. They are above his reading level yet.

Well I was excited as a little kid that Green Lantern and The Flash have been added to this series and couldn't wait to start reading.  As usual the illustrations are DC Comics quality and there are usually two per chapter.  The story here is pure superhero.  Taking place entirely in outer space Green Lantern is sent on an ambassadorial mission to help two warring planets reach peace.  However, as they are getting nowhere fast, they are all attacked and blame it on each other.  Green Lantern investigates and finds Kiriazis, a yellow lantern, is the culprit.  But while Green Lantern is battling Yellow Lantern, the Orange Lantern shows up and wants to turn everybody into his little orange minions.  The Orange Lantern can only be defeated if the enemies under attack call a truce and join together against their common aggressor.  A fast-paced, exciting superhero story!
