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

Quiet week for the mailbox. I received one review copy that sounds like it's going to be a great read and it's page design is fabulous. Hope it's as good as it looks! One review book in and two read last week makes mount arc one book smaller. Don't forget to vote in my poll to pick which book I should read next month!! (over in the sidebar - it was a tie last time I looked, we can't have that!)


  1. I received my copy of this as well. I think it's going to be a lot of fun!

  2. I haven't heard of this book, but I agree the cover is terrific.

    PS I voted in your poll.

  3. I got a copy of that a little while back. It's on my TBR pile for this week. Now I just have to find it :)

    The illustrations inside are pretty spectacular as well, BTW.

  4. I haven't seen that book yet - cover looks interesting. I voted!!
