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.

77. MAOH: Juvenile Remix, vol. 9 by Megumi Osuga

MAOH: Juvenile Remix, vol. 9 by Megumi Osuga (US) - (Canada)
MAOH: Juvenile Remix, vol. 9

Pages: 200
Ages: 16+
Finished: Mar. 9, 2012
First Published: Feb. 14, 2012
Publisher: viz media
Genre: YA, science fiction, manga, crime
Rating: 4/5

First sentence:  "Hop in."
Publisher's Summary: "To get revenge for his brother’s death, Junya decides to follow in Ando’s footsteps. To get to the bottom of who killed Ando, Junya will have to develop his own special powers. But before he can deal with Inukai, another group of misfits might beat him to it."

Acquired: Received a review copy from Simon & Schuster Canada.

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Vol. 9 is the second last book in this series and things are coming to a head.  This volume is very violent.  Junya's character has developed into a very hardcore type of guy, very different from his brother who was out to save the world.  Junya is mostly out to revenge his brother's death.  I'm not going to say much else but if you've read the series this far, you won't be disappointed with this volume.  Very intense and brutal, a creepy new character is introduced and I'm very eager to find out how it will all play out in the next, final volume, #10.
