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: Books in the Mail

Last week I received 4 new review copies and 1 bookmooch. Unfortunately, I only managed to read one review book bringing my bundles of arcs to a total of 3 books larger. It was just too hot to live last week. So I must confess I spent much of the week either having a cold shower or falling asleep. This is what the mailman brought me:

Review Copies

And a Bookmooch:


  1. I love that you got Superman to review!

  2. I can't wait to read Another Faust. Nice mailbox this past week.

  3. Another faust is a book I'd like to read. Happy reading.

  4. I can't wait for summer to go the heck away. I just don't seem to read as much as I do every other season..I think my brain fries in the heat!

    Nice selections this week!

  5. Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Another Faust seems to be turning up on everybody's wishlist and in mailboxes all over! Haven't seen a review yet though. Hope it's good!

    Bermuda - when you let publishers know you have a 9yo that's when you get offered Superman to review! LOL
