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.

I'm Up for Seconds

OK, I've been debating whether to join this challenge or not, and now that it has actually started I find I absolutely cannot hold out any longer. I. must. join.!

Joy is hosting the 2nds challenge from October to December where we must read 3 books from authors that we have only read one other book, thus enjoying a 2nd helping.

So here are my three choices:

1) The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers - I really enjoyed The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and have wanted to read another by her ever since but just haven't found the time to get to it.

2) The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison - After reading The Song of Solomon I knew I just had to read more of this author. I happen to own this title so that is why I've chosen it opposed to any others by her.

3) Interworld by Neil Gaiman - I'm hanging my head in shame, but I have only read one book by Gaiman; Coraline which I loved. It is time to rectify this sad state of affairs. This is the book I recently won from Estella's Revenge.

Oh boy, I'm so excited to finally get to read these books!
