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.

September in Review

This month I've got a total of 19 books, plus only 1 DNF. My DNF this month was an obscure Jules Verne title and you can read what I had to say about it here on Library Thing. A lot of the books I read this month were shorter children's or YA books, so not quite as much reading as last month even though the book count is higher.

I read a lot of books this month that I really enjoyed, so it's hard to pick the best book of the month. But after thinking about it the book I would start reading all over again right now would be Winnie-the-Pooh!

The worst book of the month is an easy choice. It is Cross Bones, hands down. A big disappointment!
