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 Copies in the Mail

Wow! What a week for arcs/review copies to arrive in the mailbox last week. I had the mailman deliver, the CanPar truck, UPS and FedEx all arrive last week! I even had one book tell me I couldn't read it until publication day (tomorrow). Bet you can guess which one that is! So that makes 6 new review copies in but unfortunately I only read one ARC last week which I'll be reviewing in my next post. So that means the towering ARC pile has increased by 5!

My reading really slowed down last and really for the whole month as we had relatives from out west visiting us from the 8th until the 24th (yesterday). I have managed to read but nowhere near as much as normal and it's been pretty sporadic getting around to the blogging. I finally have use of the computer for the day so I hope to post reviews for the 3 books sitting next me here.

I've also decided I'm going to try and stick to mainly reading arcs next month as well. I'll be back to normal reading time and should be able to read most of what is in my stack if I am persistent.
