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: Review Copies in the Mail

Last week was a slow mail week and a slow reading week so everything turned out fine in the end. I received one review book from the publishers last week and read and reviewed one arc, making my arc tbr pile the same as the week before.

And then I received a book I was lucky enough to win over at The Book Smugglers. This one is an arc as well but since I won it I'm not counting it as one of my official must review ASAP arcs. But it sure does look good! Thanks Ana & Thea!


  1. the title "we bought a zoo" is enough to make me check this book out at amazon!
