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.

Monday's New Review Copies

Last week my mailbox was busy. Some of these arrived with the mailman in the morning and others arrived at suppertime with the UPS truck. Only a couple of these are actual ARCs, the majority of them are review copies of the final books. I'm excited to read everyone of these! I'm also happy to report that even though the review copy pile is getting bigger I seem to be staying on track and keeping on schedule with my reading.


  1. You're dong better than I am if you're keeping up with them. I am way behind on review copy reading. I have Admit One waiting for me and need to remind myself to get to it!

  2. Well right now I'm alternating, read an arc then read a book I own/library. As long as I keep the pile moving at a regular pace I'm feeling good about.

    Admit One really sounds like it could be fun!

  3. I just finished reading The Horseman's Graves. I also received it as an ARC. I really liked it. Here's a link to my review if your interested:

    I look forward to reading you review of it.
