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.

Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse by Torben Kuhlmann





Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse by Torben Kuhlmann

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The art is absolutely stunning; I wouldn't mind prints framed on my walls! However the story was predictable and fairly lacklustre. Mouse wants to leave Germany, tries to board ship but must face cats and dogs. He sees bats and gets the idea to fly. A session of several failed clockwork and steam machines fail before he finally hits success and makes his journey just before the owls get him. Breathtaking art, especially through the wordless sections.
