Welcome

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 non-fiction. 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 Mail

Last week was fruitful for my mailbox. A small but steady stream of books arrived through the week keeping me happy. All books received were for review purposes, therefore broadly termed arcs and included in the arc pile. I received a total of 6 books in the mail and read and reviewed 5 books last week making my arc pile a total of 1 book bigger. Nothing I can't handle, especially since 2 of these books are less than 100 pages and will hardly take any time to read at all.

One interesting thing has happened though. I do not have anymore non-fiction review books on hand. Seems I read them all and as far as I can remember I don't have any coming my way. Of course, I could be wrong. But I'm pretty sure I don't have any memoirs on request for a start. So I am actually reading non-fiction from my own shelves at the moment!

Now on to last weeks book arrivals:
