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:
He's talking to the bug again.

Acquired: Purchased a new copy from an online retailer.
Reason for Reading: next in the series.

Tension mounts as our story nears its end.  This volume isn't quite as dark as the last entry but it is intense as lines are drawn and the sides gather to prepare for the final battle.  Capturing the princess is the enemy's main objective, while gathering the troops and still finding a last minute way to stop The Lord of the Locusts is our heroes'.  Humour is also a big part of this volume as Phoney is once again on one of his schemes to become wealthy as indicated by the title of this volume.  I don't want to say much more for those who haven't read this far yet.  But the second last book in the series keeps the quality one has come to expect from this series, ends with a note of doom, making one eager to read the final volume.  A great series for kids and adults!
