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: Arcs in the Mailbox

Last week was a quiet week for book mail. I only received one package of books and that was last Monday, so it's been a while. But fortunately that one package was a nice big doozy from Random House Canada which more than made up for not receiving any other book goodies. Here's what I received:

So for my grand tally that brings in 5 more arcs to read and last week I read and reviewed 2 books (though really 3 but I won't review it until today so it won't count until next weeks stats), making the arc pile 3 books larger. That seems to be my average. If I can just get all the books I have earmarked to read and review for this month I will be a-ok and way on schedule, with plenty of room for personal reading too. My next 3 reads should be short quick reads helping me along. Wish me luck; this month is going by too fast for my liking. Now to get off the computer and go read!

I'll be back later though with a review of the book I finished over the weekend, The Redeemer by Jo Nesbo.

  1. I just love all these covers! Wonder if Random House has something similar for the US?
