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.

Four-Legged Friends Wrap Up

This week I finished another of my challenges: the Four-Legged Friends Challenge hosted by Kailana.

1. The Capture by Kathryn Lasky(Owls)
2. Into the Wild by Erin Hunter(Cats)
3. Brighty of the Grand Canyon by Marguerite Henry(Burro)
4. Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel(Bats)
5. Swamp Cat by Jim Kjelgaard (Cat)

The books in my original list are the ones I read. I really enjoyed this challenge. Animal fantasy is one of my favourite genres but I did include a few real-life animal stories in my list too. #1 and #2 above are both series I had wanted to try for a while and I'm definitely in for the long haul with both of them. Even though I wasn't too fond of #2, I've since read the sequel and loved it. #3 was a re-read from my childhood. #4 is one I've wanted to read since it was published and finally can cross it off my list; I already have the sequel sitting on my bedside table. And finally #5, was a treasure I found at a book sale; I will always be a big fan of Kjelgaard.

Great challenge! If another animal-themed challenge is ever going I'll be sure to join.
