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.

Fishfishfish by Lee Nordling

Fishfishfish by Lee Nordling

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Paperback, 32 pages
March 1st, 2015 by Graphic Universe (available now on amazon)

This is a wordless picture book with a few comic speech bubbles at the beginning and end. It tells three stories in one. One can read the top panel across the book showing the story of a little yellow fish swimming all alone. The middle panel goes through the book showing a barracuda on the search for food. The bottom panel follows along with a school of fish who band together. You can also read each page top to bottom as the frames interact with each other as the various fish move up or down into another fish's panel. I'm not a big fan of wordless picture books and this doesn't really have a plot. But the illustration is cute and would appeal to young children or elementary age with an interest in marine life.
