  • Mario Bros. Shirt

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pin

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tiki Mug

  • Captain America Shield Replica

  • Superman Action Comics


My favorite item here is the shirt. Not only is that my actual birth year, it's MARIO. The pin is cute, the mug is like a shot glass, really, and shield is cute, and I'm keeping that comic in the plastic because I'm paranoid, but that shirt is the star here.

The only thing I dislike about this crate is it makes me feel old as fuck... But that can't be helped.

I don't know exactly what I would have expected from an 'origins' crate but this stuff is ok. It seems a little light on items overall but that Mario shirt makes me too happy to care.

Lenni Reviews: "The Haunting of Timber Manor" by F. E. Feeley Jr.

*This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review and is rated for 18+.

*This review is cross-posted at Otakus and Geeks.

Daniel Donnelly has sadly lost his parents in a terrible accident. He gets a phone call from his estranged aunt who tells him he is now heir to a fortune and a house called Timber Manor. On the way there, Daniel has to pull over in a huge storm and Sherriff Hale Davis - a native of the town near Timber Manor - helps him out. But the manor holds a dark and powerful secret that puts Daniel's life in great peril

While Daniel and Hale make a good couple and you're rooting for them, the novel makes a great ghost story. The tone is perfect for curling up in a blanket and reading this on a stormy night.It was good to have the story switch perspectives to get everyone's thoughts on what's happening but I feel the supernatural story development had more care put to it than the romantic development. Daniel and Hale have that insta-love thing going on that will bug you if that's an aspect of romances that bug you.

And can Francine get a spin-off series!? PLEASE!!

Giving this a 3.7 out of 5.
