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.

R.I.P. - Dom DeLuise

Actor, comedian and chef, Dom DeLuise dies in his sleep at age 75. I most remember him for the movies in the 70s such as Cannonball Run, Smokey and the Bandit 2 and History of the World Part 1 and as being the father of three fabulous sons who are all in show business Peter (StarGate), Michael (SeaQuest DSV) and David (3rd Rock from the Sun). Rest in Peace Dom. We will miss you.


  1. the news is covering him right now... mel books really liked him and more or less made his career.

  2. I loved Dom DeLuise. I thought he was one of the funniest men in movies.
