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.

Canadian Book Challenge

Just what I need, another challenge! I was going to set a personal challenge for myself to try and read at least 1 Canadian authored book every month and I've just come upon this challenge. The Canadian Book Challenge runs from Oct 4 - July 1, 2008. Read 13 books about Canada or by a Canadian author.

I'm not going to make a definite list but rather pick books as they come to me. But I do have a few Canadian books lined up in my tbr pile at the moment which I will list here.

The Tin Flute by Gabrielle Roy
Lives of the Saints by Nino Ricci
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel
