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.

Genre: children, graphic novel, non-fiction, easy reader
Rating: 3/5

If you're hungry between meals, a snack can boost your energy.

Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Press.

Reason for Reading:   My son read this aloud as his reader.

Part of the First Graphics series, this book has a lot of panels with narrative text and minimal comic balloons to help the beginner get used to the graphic format.  All about why snacks are important for the body and what snacks are healthy and why.  Gives ideas on how to choose healthy snacks and even presents some interesting choices you may not have thought of before.  The book was on the young side for my son but the reading level was spot-on.  He read the book in one sitting and only had trouble with a couple of words.  I thought the book was informative and and very appealing to the targeted audience.
