Welcome

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.

Be Careful What You Watch

So here I am reading Fingersmith by Sarah Waters and thinking this is one of the most brilliant books I've ever read. I am so into this book!

But as I'm reading, I have a vague feeling that I know this story, it seems somewhat familiar and the more I read the more familiar it feels. Then I start thinking it reminds me of some British dramatization I've seen, I'm having visions of maybe a classic, with a woman in a madhouse. I start thinking more and it dawns on me, maybe Fingersmith itself has been dramatized? So I google "Fingermisth BBC" and B-I-N-G-O! it has, and I've seen it! I can't remember everything that happens but I do remember the ending. Darn it all!
