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.

Upcoming Reads

I went to the library today and have filled my bedside table with all my future reads for the next little while. I went through my RIP Challenge list and I own most of those books so I took them off the shelves and onto the TBR stacks.

Also on the TBR stacks is:

The Empire of the Sun by J.G. Ballard
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Fluke by Christopher Moore
A Man Lay Dead by Ngaio Marsh
Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs
Aunt Dimity's Death by Nancy Atherton

Currently reading: Pure Dead Wicked by Debi Gliori
Currently reading aloud to the 7yo: Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne and The Cricket in Times Square by George Seldon.

Edited to add: A hold came in at the library today, so I had to go back and pick it up. So while I was there I decided to pick up another Lowry book and try another Duncan book.

The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason
The Silent Boy by Lois Lowry
Ransom by Lois Duncan


  1. How in the world do you find time to read all these books!!! I have put A Dirty Job on my TBR list! Thanks!

  2. Danielle, Hope you like A Dirty Job, I absolutley love that book!

    As for reading, I gave up watching TV back in May and it's amazing how much more reading I can do when I'm not watching TV. One exception, I watch Mystery/Masterpiece Theatre every Sunday night!
