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.

Medical Mystery Madness Challenge

This challenge is right up my alley! I love forensic mysteries. Read 3 medical mysteries from June 1 to November 1.

My choices are:
The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen
Carved in Bone by Jefferson Bass
Postmortem by Patricia Cornwell


  1. I read both Carved in Bone and Flesh and Bone by Jefferson Bass. The Body Farm is a pretty cool series, although there were a few kind of gross things. I mean, they do deal with dead bodies and such!!

    I love the CSI type books!

  2. Sounds good, stephanie. I've wanted to read this series for a while now. I like my mysteries to be on the gross side so it definately sounds like my type of book!

  3. Oh! Thanks for reminding me, Nicola. I wanted to put Carved in Bone on my possibility list, too.
