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.

DVD Break: Justice League - Secret Origins

Justice League: Secret Origins - (2002) - (DVD) - (animated) - (own)

Originally released in 2001 as the first 3 episodes of Season One of the Justice League TV Series that ran from 2001-2006.  This pilot movie introduces how the Justice League came to be with the introduction of J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, though he's never referred to by his superhero name in these episodes.  Totalling 60 mins. we love this episode.  Neither of us has watched it since ds was much younger, but it all came back as we re-watched it. This is a good production, intense but not dark with plenty of humour, suitable for the younger crowd as well.  My favourite character is Hawkgirl; I just love her weapon.  I usually love Flash but here he's portrayed mostly as a doofus who rushes into things without thinking first and an eye for the ladies, especially newcomer Princess Diana, who has not been named Wonder Woman in this episode.  The other characters are already established: Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern. We will be donating this to the library; they don't have it but they do have 3 other Justice League DVD's so I asked ds if he'd like to borrow those and do a bit of a JL marathon and he was eager.
