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.

Totally Off Topic But A Funny Coincidence

You know when you have to fill in those annoying little letter codes to verify you are a real human being and not a bot posting spam? Most of the time, heck 99% of the time, they are just a bunch of random letters and numbers. But...

Have you ever got letters that actually meant something and made you laugh? Today I got both of these:

HMEGGZ (ham and eggs anyone?)

The next one is pretty rude but I couldn't believe it when I saw it:

FKCNGU (keeping my blog g-rated so no translation, I'm sure you can figure it out)

It doesn't take much to amuse me...


  1. I've gotten weird things too. But what I want to know is why sometimes the word verification is only 4 letters long and other times it's 7-8 letters? Why such a big discrepancy?

  2. Oh yeah, and when it's a 7-8 letter one I usually end up making a mistake and having to do it over again.

  3. I know what you're talking about Nicola. Sometimes I have a giggle over them, too.

  4. Okay, that's hilarious! Mine are only ever gibberish.
