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.

224. Fluffy, Fluffy Cinnamoroll Vol. 4 by Yumi Tsukirino

Fluffy, Fluffy Cinnamoroll Vol. 4 by Yumi Tsukirino. (Canada) - (US)
Fluffy, Fluffy Cinnamoroll, Vol. 4

Pages: 179
Ages: 8+
Finished: Aug. 16, 2012
First Published: Jul. 3, 2012
Publisher: viz media
Genre: children, manga, fantasy, humour
Rating: 4/5

First sentence: "One day, a letter from school children far away appeared on the cafe bulletin board."

Publisher's Summary: "The pups set up a specialty crepe shop for the animals in the forest. But the squirrels throw out everything but the nuts, the raccoons wash away the best part, and the chickens want their crepes made with worms. Gyaah!"

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

Reason for Reading:  Next in the series.

At this point in the series there are no more introductory opening scenes or back-stories; it is assumed you know what you are reading by now.  The series has changed again; gone is Cinnamaroll's treasure chest, map and any reference to the pups' magical items.  The collection of short stories about the pups are fun and entertaining stories about interactions between friends and meeting new people; the magic stories are gone.  As was started with the last volume, the first half of this volume is about the pups, a collection of short stories.  Then the second half is about the "Angels" but this time they have a continuous story which revolves around their infatuation and eventual relationship with a boy band "The Caramels".  While the first 3 volumes were suitable for younger girls, this one is decidedly aimed at girls who are interested in boys.

I would end my reading of the series here but there is one more volume that has been listed in pre-publication for some time so I'm thinking volume 5 will end the series.  For that reason I plan to read volume 5 and finish the series; if there are more volumes to come, I've had my fill and will not continue from that point.
