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.

New York Times' Zalewski Critiques Today's Picture Books

I've got to say I'm right behind him on this one. I've always, more or less, stuck with the classic picture books with my children. There is nothing worse than picture books about bratty kids who act and behave in ways which are entirely unacceptable in your own home.

In today’s picture books, the kids are in charge: newyorker.com

  1. Thanks for the link to that article - it's terrific. I'm going to be sharing it with a few other people. I guess it really is the fault of society-at-large these days. If you've seen kid shows on Disney and Nick, you see the same sort of "kids in charge" scenarios. It's really unfortunate.
