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.

February Books in the House

Not a lot of book buying this month, comparatively speaking.

A thrift store stop resulted in some great children's lit. including All-of-a-Kind Family Downtown, Rabbit Hill, several Newbery Honors, Moominland Midwinter, plus a couple of Josephine Tey, and Dandelion Wine by Bradbury among others.

I received a few ARCS this month: Black Ships, The Resurrectionist and The Monsters of Templeton.

Bookmooch brought me the last two Pern books I needed and Inkheart.

And another thrift store purchase included Elizabeth George, Barbara Hambly, two old Ginn Readers, some easy readers for the 7yo, Kenneth Oppel's first novel and other children's books.

  1. I loved the All-of-a-Kind family, Josephine Tey, and Dandelion Wine. I intend to read something Moomin eventually.
