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.

More Books!

When I see a deal on books I just can't leave without buying something! Today we went into a discount store and as soon as you walked in the door they had this big rack with hardcover books for $1 each. Now, that is cheaper than the price of hc's at Goodwill! So, of course I had to have a look-see and this is what I came home with:

1) The Burglar Who Traded Ted Williams by Lawrence Block
2) First Meetings in the Enderverse by Orson Scott Card
3) The Tesseract by Alek Garland
4) Mr. Ives' Christmas by Oscar Hijuelos
5) No Laughing Matter by Betty Rowlands
6) Cezanne Pinto by Mary Stolz
7) Mary on Horseback by Rosemary Wells

Not bad for $7
