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

Last week I only received 1 ARC in the mail but I also received a BookMooch (I'm looking for books for next year's curriculum. I'll be adding more books to my wishlist in the weeks to come but if you belong to BookMooch take a look at my wishlist and I'll transfer the points over to you if you have anything I need.

And finally, best of all, I received a wonderful gift from a fellow blogger.

An arc a bookmooch

And a gift from John Mutford. These are readers I happened to mention on his blog that I used in school and was trying to collect them. He sent me these out of the blue. Thank you John! Go visit John's Blog he always has lots of fun stuff going on over there.

So after receiving 1 arc in the mail, last week I read and reviewed 3 arcs; actually making my arc pile 2 books smaller! Yeah, for small victories!


  1. I received Land of Marvels, too - it looks really good!

  2. Wow! You struck gold! :) I love getting books in the mail.
