Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads and writes as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read.

I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction and non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.

I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, with a nod towards what parents can expect to find that might or might not be objectionable.

I also blog about graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

A-Zed Challenge Almost Finished

Well, I gave it the old college try and almost finished this challenge. I ended up stuck with Authors Q-U-X-Z and Titles X-Y-Z. I just wanted to fit the books I read in to the challenge and not read a book simply because it fit into the challenge, ykwim. I think this is running again next year with different rules but I plan on trying it again in 2009 with the same rules as before.
