Welcome

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 Unlimited: Saving the World


Justice League Unlimited: Saving the World - (2005) - (DVD) - (animated) - (library)
Originally released in 2004 this contains three episodes from Season One of the Justice League Unlimited (JLU) TV Series that ran from 2004-2006. It contains the pilot episode 1 "Initiation" which brings the story of how Green Arrow joined the League. Next is episode 4 "Hawk and Dove" which introduces to the audience the brotherly superteam of Hawk and Dove who join with Wonder Woman to fight against Aries the God of War and his robot "The Annihilator".  Finally, this disc ends with episode 3 "Kid Stuff" which has founding members Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman turned into kids to battle against Mordred after he has removed all adults from the world.  This was great!  Ds and I both loved it.  It's a more polished and slightly more mature series than the one we watched previously.  This one is rated PG, while yesterday's was G.  JLU contains like 50 superheroes and each episode features a few characters sent off by J'onn J'onzz (the leader) to go on a mission.  We both thought "Kid Stuff" was hilarious but agreed that the first episode "Initiation" was the best of the three.  We have another JL DVD out from the library so our marathon continues ...
