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 sentence:

"That's the funniest thing I've ever seen!" said a man.

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.

I love the new Green Lantern and Flash volumes that have been added to this series this year but this one was a little disappointing.  Flash meets up with Trickster again.  A moody teenager whose goal in life is to beat The Flash.  This time Trickster thinks he has the answer by using scientific elements that can't be seen such as gas and air pressure along with bubbles to take out the Scarlet Speedster.  A story based on pure action from start to finish.  I was however underwhelmed with Trickster as a super villain, who only used science and had no real super powers or reason for being than to "get" The Flash.  Youngsters may feel the same way but the continuous action should keep their attention glued to the page.
