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 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 Mail

A nice little week for my mailbox this week, three review books that each sound scrumptious. Funnily enough since I read and reviewed 3 books last week that means my arc pile remains exactly the same as before since 3 in and 3 out equals nothing to increase the tbr pile. Yeah me!



I did receive one other book this week and that was an unsolicited free "Gospel of John", a nice looking little book which I intended to keep but first I decided to see which ministries were distributing the book and I came upon a "Christian" ministry that listed all the Christian denominations and when I looked up Roman Catholic it contained a 3-page PDF on why Catholicism was wrong. So I tossed it.
