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.

Monday: Books in the Mail

Well it was very quiet and lonely in my mailbox (except for Christmas cards) over the holidays but last week my first arc of the year arrived

And after just having finished watching Angel Season 5 during December, I eagerly bought online the first two volumes of graphic novels of season 6:


  1. Both of those Angel's are really good. I had to get them after watching every season of Buffy and the fifth of Angel.

  2. OH...I'm green with envy over the Christopher Moore book!!

  3. I'm on the waiting list at my library for Fool, and I'm very much looking foward to reading it!

  4. I really need to read both of these as well as the Buffy ones that carry on after the TV show ended. I have read the 4 Spike After the Fall comics which were a lot of fun. They cross over a lot with the Angel ones I think.

  5. Sounds good Rhinoa. I plan on getting the Spike ones next. I love Spike!
