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.

Chunkster Challenge

OK, I have been trying to resist this challenge. I am in so many challenges already but I have my reasons (mwa ha ha!) I am officially joining the Chunkster Challenge which stipulates you read at least 4 books in 2008 that are at least 450 pages or more.

I started a book yesterday which qualifies and I intend on reading a Charles Dickens book this year so that really only leaves my 2 more books to add to the list. Oh, I just remembered I'll be reading The Far Sweet Thing by Libba Bray and The Shining by Stephen King this year too! Yeah, I have four and didn't have to add anything to my schedule!

My list:

Kept: A Victoria Mystery by D.J. Taylor (463 pgs of fairly small type) This is the one I'm currently reading.

Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens (1024 pgs)

The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray (832 pgs.)

The Shining by Stephen King (704 pgs.)
