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.

Books Read 2006

Rhinoa has been entering some lists of books she's read in the past, before blogging, and I thought this was a wonderful idea. I have a notebook, in which I've kept lists of books read, off and on, for the last few years and thought I'd go ahead and add them to my blog in case my notebook ever gets lost and just to have everything in one place. So, I'm going to go backwards starting with 2006.

Unfortunately, this list only covers January to July. I didn't rate books back then but I will make a brief notation beside books that were exceptional and ones I hated. R/A stands for read-aloud.
