Wonderful Word Wednesday: Kleptomania

It's Wonderful Wednesdays again and I have one of my favorite words here! 
I also heard this one in a video game around ten years ago for the first time ... Proof they can be educational! lol

1.) an irresistible impulse to steal, stemming from emotional disturbance rather than economic need.

Example Sentence: Ashlyn has kleptomania.

I thought about picking some cliche thief picture, but I decided Skyrim is cooler.
And no this isn't the game I learned the word from, but you can easily become a kleptomaniac lol.

Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?

If you liked this post, come back every Saturday for more writing advice, character interviews, book reviews and more! On Sundays I have Soundtrack Sundays where I post a new score piece, Tuesdays are Tea Tuesdays with tea reviews, Wednesdays I have Wonderful Word Wednesdays where I post a new vocabulary word, and Fridays are Fan Fridays where I post tags and other goodies. To help support my dream to be an author follow this blog, like me on Facebook, watch me on deviantART, and follow me on Pinterest and Twitter. If you want to know more about my books check out them out here. Thank you! :)
