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.

Jack Caffrey (7)

Fantastic. This book literally had me feeling scared and uneasy from the beginning! A great case that is terrifying for anyone with kids, even grown-up ones. Many issues are resolved.The book starts with the closure of the Misty case which has been going on for several books now. Jack is constantly thinking of his feelings for Flea, but she doesn't make an appearance this time. Instead, Jack meets up with the Walking Man again and this sets him off on the case he eventually becomes involved with. While it has been no secret to the reader for a few books now, Jack finally learns what happened to his brother. As you can probably tell, these books are best read in order as info from previous books is often integral or at least pops up in conversation. This one even has a scene where "Birdman" from the first book is discussed. This one is extremely unsettling and I enjoyed it much more than the last one.
