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.

Will Be Away For a While

I'm taking a trip back to Alberta to visit my Dad for the next three weeks. I am taking lots of books and plan on having a quiet visit and hopefully will get lots of reading done. I will have limited Internet access but do hope to keep my reviews up to date while I'm away. I just won't have time to comment or visit other blogs while I'm gone. I won't be making any other posts, besides reviews, while I'm gone and probably won't keep my current reading list (in the sidebar) up-to-date either.

See you all after November 20th, when I get back.


  1. Hope you have a wonderful visit, Nicola!

  2. I hope your having a great time with you Dad! Cherish the time you have with him!
