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 saw a reasonable three new review copies arrive at the door, two of them next in a series and one a first time author. My son is over the moon about the next Beastly Business book, and I can't wait to read Catherine Banner's sequel to last year's amazing The Eyes of a King, while The Midnight Charter sounds truly unique. A good week of books. Let's see I received three review copies and last week I read one and had to DNF another which makes the ARC pile only 1 book larger. I had a very hectic week last week so here's to getting back to good old routine this week and accomplishing a good bit of reading!


  1. Those three books look very nice lined up like that. I hope you enjoy them!

  2. They look like exciting reads - enjoy!
