Welcome

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 Books in the Mail

Last week was a good day for my mailbox, even had the UPS man here twice. Received in the mail last week are:




Last week I read an reviewed one arc so my pile has increased this week. Not counting the three children's graphic novels which my 8yo is reading to me, my towering, toppling arc pile has increased by 3 books.

I just haven't seemed to be reading as much as usual these days but I'm planning for that to change next month. I will be visiting my Dad in Alberta for 3 weeks in Nov. and I intend on bringing a ton of my arcs with me. I'll be alone in the house all day as they are at work so I can relax by their fireplace and read all day long! I am soooo looking forward to it.
