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: Ewoks: Caravan of Courage


Ewoks: Caravan of Courage orig. title The Ewok Adventure - (1984) - (DVD) - (Made for TV) - (ILL)  

After watching the sequel to this, which we own at home, we thought we would try ILL and see if we could come up with the first original made for TV movie since it too had received an Emmy.  This movie however we found rather tiresome.  After the initial sequences in which the children are separated from the parents and we get to see some huge special effects creatures, the movie really slows down.  The brother's character really bothered me.  He doesn't trust the Ewoks at first, calls them names, then suddenly he's ok with them, but he continues to have an attitude the entire film.  Cindel's main purpose seems to be to stand around and look pathetic.  Which she is very good at doing.  Anyway nothing of significance happens as they look for their parents except a few comic moments with the Ewoks, until the big scene at the end where everyone is reunited.  Ds was bored with the movie and I was glad when it was over.  The sequel is much better.
