I've missed a lot of round ups this year so thought I should post at least a couple before the end of the year.
Just the 10 reads for me this month, but only 1 comic was included so that's a plus.

Just gearing up for the end of the year now, I'm pretty much done with my Christmas shopping and only have to post a couple of presents off to Oz for friends.
I'm working this Christmas which is shit and I've noted in my recent pay that it has STILL not been sorted which now makes it 6 months of management pissing around.
In all honesty I don't think I can stay there full time anymore, I've really hit my limit and the frustration of several elements is driving me insane.
Next year will bring a few changes work wise but I'm not quite sure what that will be at the moment.
I'm off on leave at the moment and tomorrow I'm taking Boo to the vet to have her neutered so I'm feeling a little anxious about her having an anaesthetic. I'm sure Suzy will love this as it will give her several hours of peace and quiet.
This one looks at a murder that happens during a tornado that destroys most of the town of Scumble River. The mayor has all city positions frozen, so no new employees can be hired in any position. He is not known as an ethical mayor and he is also the uncle of Skye. She is the school psychologist and she is also pregnant with her first baby. She and her husband, Wally Boyd, the chief of police, are getting ready for the baby and her mother and his father are overprotective and want her to rest.
Right after a tornado destroys their home, they go to the police station and the mayor wants Wally to go out and find people whose relatives are standing in his office. Wally goes out and finds the most recent member of the city council dead. The next day, Wally goes out to check the property of a crony of the mayor and he is taken hostage. His wife calls his father, who comes in and does lots of good deeds while working to find his son and keep Skye safe.
This was a really good story and I did enjoy it. I had trouble putting it down and was glad that I had an audiobook to listen to when I wasn't able to read.
