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.

The Wolf and Me by Richard Scrimger

The Wolf and Me by Richard Scrimger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Paperback, 230 pages
Published October 1st 2014 by Orca Book

Seven: The Sequels

The uniqueness of this series is that it doesn't matter in what order you read them. I chose this for my second book simply because the title caught my attention. I enjoyed this way more than Scrimger's book "Ink Me" from the first series. Again written by Bunny who has learning disabilities so the text is written in his vernacular with phonetic spelling and mistakes. It has the same problem as "Ink Me" in that the pot is incredibly unbelievable. The scenes that happened at the US/Canada border are just not possible. But if one is willing to suspend disbelief it is an action-packed read. Bunny is kidnapped and spends the entire book escaping and getting recaptured repeatedly. It's a fast read that I read in one day. As to its part within the series as a whole, it is minor. The Grandfather becomes an image of mental courage for Bunny but there is no mystery to solve as in the first book I read, "Double You". However, his brother's adventure ("Coda") is referred to repeatedly.
