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.

Favourite Lyrics

I'm not a part of Booking Through Thursday but this week's question gives me an excuse to post a link to my all-time favourite song. The question asks "Is there a song you particularly like for it's lyrics?" Well, I like a lot of songs because of the lyrics but this one is just everything to me. I love the words, first. Then I love the group! And Brad Roberts' voice is so divine, I get chills.

Listen to the words, if you are Christian the words will hit you very hard as allegory. Simply beautiful!


  1. Whoooooooaa . . . I've never heard of him or his voice. My first impression of the lyrics is - very cool. I don't care for superheroes (other than the ultimate), but the allegory is profound. As for Brad, I don't think I've heard anybody sing so low before and I love deep voices. (I could do without the hair, though.) :)

  2. Glad you like it! The band is called "Crash Test Dummies" and they were a Canadian band most popular in the 1990s. The hair is a bit long for my likes but it suits him, I think.
