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.

Canadian Reading Challenge III

Posting the challenge below made me realize I hadn't made a post for the 3rd Annual Canadian Reading Challenge. It's is just such a given that I'm going to participate I guess it slipped my mind to make an official "Yes, I am joining the challenge" post. So here it is! I am joining the Challenge for the 3rd year in a row. My Canadian reading has actually dropped off a bit recently so I'll have to put some effort into getting it going again more steadily but won't be too hard as I've got some favourite authors now and I've got to read Oryx and Crake as I'll be getting a review copy of Atwood's newest book when it comes out which is not a sequel to the aforementioned but is set in the same world.


  1. Oooh, a new Atwood! So exciting. I joined this challenge as well but am having a hard time making up a list of 12 authors (mostly trying to get authors I already have on the shelf). I'll be reading Alias Grace by Atwood.

  2. I love Alias Grace!!! Enjoy!
