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: New Review Books Received in the Mail

Last week I was lucky enough to receive four fabulous review copies! All very different from each other, a true memoir of a female French resistance fighter in WWII, the first volume in a new YA fantasy series by a Canadian author, a very intriguing South African story and .... the latest Karin Slaughter! This is a stand alone. I loved her first stand alone "Triptych" so much I'm really looking forward to this. So that makes 4 new arcs in and I read and reviewed 3 last week making it only a total of 1 more book to the towering arc tbr pile. But it's all good!


  1. Wow! Three of those I would love to read. I look forward to reading your thoughts on them. Enjoy!

  2. I'm thinking they all look really good! Especially that fantasy book!
