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.

RIP III Challenge Complete

With my last review I've now finished the RIP III challenge. I presume I'll be reading more books that will qualify as I read this genre a lot. But officially I am done the challenge. I did not make a list to read from but went the free and easy route and read whatever I felt like as it came up. Here's my list of books read:

1. The Vampire Prince by Darren Shan
2. Hunters of the Dusk by Darren Shan
3. The Mystery of Mary Rogers by Rick Geary
4. Night Runner by Max Turner
5. Faces of Fear by John Saul

All book were good or better but my fav. was Night Runner by Max Turner


  1. Good job! I'm "done" too, but it's impossible not to read more then needed! lol

  2. Darren Shan was oddly addictive. I am not a fan of vampire books, but after the third one I really wanted to read all of them!

  3. Wow! congrats on finishing so soon. :) I haven't even signed up yet...

  4. Congrats on finishing the challenge!
