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.

Important Political News

CTV is conducting a poll on the coalition. To vote "No" to the coalition dial 1-416-870-4444

It is of utmost importance that you make your voice heard on this travesty against our Rights as Canadians. If you can say any of the following sentences, let politicians know you are against this government coup.

We voted Liberal.
We voted Conservative.
We voted N.D.P.
We voted Green Party.
We voted Independent.
We voted for the Nation of Canada.


  1. You're right there! Terrible thing they are trying to do!

  2. We've been having animated discussions about this in my staff room.
    You know we completely disagree on politics, but I have to add that it isn't a coup. The parliamentary system allows for a majority of members to govern. If the other 3 parties had been in agreement the night of the election, they could have been asked to form the government.

    I'm OK with Harper letting things stay as they are, since he has finally recognized that he can't pretend he has a majority when he doesn't. He has to listen a bit to the opposition.

    I personally thought the idea of the coalition was neat, that the 3 parties would work together, which is what people always say they want the politicians to do.
    I hope you take no offence, Nicole.

  3. Kailana - Spot on, it's terrifying.

    Raidergirl - No offence taken. To each his own. I can't imagine anyone voting a separatist party into ruling the government of Canada. It sends chills down my spine. I could say a lot more, but won't. {smiles}
