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.

Change of Plans Already

OK, so I already made a change to my list of reads for the book awards reading challenge. I've removed "The Bone People". I had it on my list because it is the next book in the book awards yahoo group and I just got it in on Interlibrary Loan the other day. So I went to amazon and started reading the reviews and found out what it was really about. I've thought this over and am going to pass on reading this. The topic is too disturbing.

So, I've replaced it with a book I just bought today. I was at Chapters and they had a $2 table at the front. Not much there but I did manage to score one book. "Twelve Bar Blues" by Patrick Neate, a Whitbread Novel Award winner!
